Weekly Challenge #294: Reticula/Fragment Beginning

"Reticula and Fragments" is the theme of this new challenge. Rick and Maria introduced these two terms in their new book Zentangle Primer Volume 1.

Laura in her blog explains it like that :
"Reticula is the term for a grid, but not just the square grid like the checkerboard, but an encompassing term for all the zentangle grids. ... So with Reticula being the term for grids, fragments, then, are the pattern drawn inside each square or facet of the grid. "

I have not yet read this book but it made me want to buy it. I'm waiting for it.

Here is a quite complicated grid that I discovered on a ceramic :

the fragment i used:

and the final work:

Thank you very much for your comment. Have a good week!


  1. That's so beautiful. That is a very interesting grid, but the resulting look is stunning. Great shading and contrast between dark and light.

    I need to play with this fragment / reticula idea - it looks like infinite fun.

  2. You used a stunning reticula (grid) as a base for your tile. And of course is your finishing piece absolutely beautiful

  3. Beautiful done and very original to create a reticula by yourself. You have chosen a nice fragment to fill in different sizes, love it. Wish you lots of tanglepleasure with the book, merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  4. Waouh, vous vous êtes lancée, c'est superbe. Moi je ne comprenais rien à cette technique, et je n'osais pas ! Je crois que je vais mettre le bouquin sur ma "Liste des envies pour Noel" ! Bon week end

    1. Merci pour votre commentaire. je suis allée sur votre site mais je n'ai pas trouvé le challenge de cette semaine. Cela m repose un peu de pouvoir ajouter des commentaires en français. A la semaine prochaine peut-être!

  5. Very, very cool reticula! And I love how your fragment worked out in it. Nicely done!

  6. Beautifully done Christine. I love your grid. I may have to lift that and play around some more with this concept. I love the finished tile.

  7. What a beautiful reticulum you used! Your tile is a fabulous result of a wonderful creativity! I do love it!

  8. I absolutely love the grid you designed! (Now why didn't I think of that! Lol!) This tile is awesome!

  9. I love the grid you created, with the fragment it looks really cool. :D


Bonne année 2018
