Challenge 111: Monotangle - Mooka

The Challenge from the Diva this week is a monotangle (using only one tangle) for the tile or ZIA. The tangle of choice was Mooka.  This is a beautiful tangle created by the founders of zentangle, Rick and Maria.  Similar to the Diva, this is one I love, but rarely use because I just don't think it comes out the way I want it to.  I tried two tiles this week and the first, fit my usual profile of, ehh, I don't really like how it turned out.  But I tried again and I really liked how it turned out.  I slowed down and focused on creating smaller and thinner mooka.  Having seen all the beautiful pieces created by Maria Thomas with mooka, I tried filling in the tile with a lot of smaller mooka that were somewhat inter-tangled.  I think I will keep trying mooka, how about you?

Keep Tangling!
