Weekly Challenge #215: "Labyrinth"



This week the Diva writes:

"I've been taking a year long course on Mandalas with the amazing Scottish beauty Julie Gibbons, this is my third year exploring the Great Round of Mandala with her. And it just so happens that Stage Three (which corresponds with the month of March) involves labyrinths. I've been thinking about tangling a labyrinth ever since.
I had wondered how well a labyrinth would translate into a Zentangle challenge, and then in my online travels i found a website which said:

A labyrinth is not a maze. Mazes are puzzles, designed to vex the mind, but labyrinths are contemplative designs, designed to focus the mind.

and i thought, that sounds much like tangling to me! So i gave it a go. ".



So I started by drawing a labyrinth following the instructions on the web page :

The labyrinth is still visible in the center of the tile. Do you see it?But then I let my pencil follow my imagination and the theme of labyrinth has been somewhat forgotten.
