Starry Eyed Surprise!

The Week 4 challenge from  CZT Laura Harms is Starry Eyed Surprise - a song she has posted on her site.  The challenge - listen to the song and tangle whatever it inspires in you.  Laura's questions for the challenge - "Stars.  What does that mean?  A string?  a feeling? A tangle/pattern? Some other thing i haven't even thought of?"

The challenge is open to every Zentangle devotee - details are on Laura's blog here  I Am The Diva.  If you missed the first 3 weeks and want to be inspired be sure to click on the Weekly Challenge tab at the top to view slideshow of each week's challenge entries.

In a galaxy far far away you might find this star - then again maybe not.  When I first read through the challenge on Monday - first thought was oh, this would be easy - stars - I can do that.   Turned out to be a bit more challenging than I anticipated.  In this case how I arrived at the finished tangle isn't all that interesting lots of navel gazing - when I probably should have just gone outside and gazed at the stars instead.  I've worked on this one way too long starting and stopping, thinking I was done but not feeling satisfied so kept adding bits and pieces here and there. Not sure it feels like a zentangle.  It didn't flow, feels a bit disjointed, yet in it's own quirky way it pleases me.
