This week Laura Harmes at I Am the Diva has challenged the Zentangle® community to create a tile using the Moebius Syndrome Foundation's logo as the string. You can read more about this syndrome and see what others have done with this challenge (#201) here. Below is my entry.

This week Laura Harms, at I Am the Diva has reached a milestone in posting her 200th challenge. She has asked that we create a tile using our favorite tangle as a monotangle. My favorite go to tangle changes often. My current favorite is Nautica. Here is my tile.

So, I am declaring today "What If Wednesday". The idea is to play with this tangle and discover what possibilities it has to offer. I came up with over 30 possibilities. Here are some examples:
1. I string Nautica to make a border?
2. I use Nautica in a different polygon: square, hexagon, octagon...?
3. I use it with Rick's Paradox? What other tangles could I use with Nautica?
4. I put the "boards" on all 3 sides of the triangle, overlapping them?
5. I vary the weight of the lines?
If you want to play more with "What If" I suggest you get your hands on a copy of Pattern Play: a Zentangle Creativity Boost (Volume 1) by Chris Letourneau CZT and Sonya J Yencer.
Not only does this book give lots of ideas for playing with tangles, there are also beautiful examples for creative inspiration.
