This is a small, white, real pumpkin that I tangled on during October 2010. It wasn’t easy to do because the squash was heavily coated in some kind of wax. I used Pigma Micron pens, but they tended to stay wet a long time. Also, the ink tended to bead up in spots so that when it dried, there were darker circles.

Creatures. As the ship floated just above the surface, she stared out the window at the myriad of creatures. She thought, “The Universe has a bizarre sense of humor!” Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Shading done with graphite pencil.

I heart. The string for this tile started out as a heart. I then modified it a bit to fit in all of the random tangles for the day. Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Afterglow Bamboo Bubbles Cadent Drupe Flux Poke-Root Quabog

Just add fish. This reminds me of the view into a nicely landscaped aquarium. I guess I still have OdySea on my mind! Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a sepia, Micron pen. Tangles: Borbz Coral Pods Quabog Reef Roxi

How do you grow? I feel like my tangling shovel dug a slice from the garden. Here, I can see the plants reaching for the sun, the soil, seeds and roots! Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Fescu Keeko Quabog Quipple Sedgling Umble

Paths. In this tile, Twing kind of makes a path for you to follow in and out of the designs. There are probably too many tangle designs here, but I needed a bunch to fill in the string that I created. Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen.

Quantity. This string had a lot of individual “spaces” in it to fill with tangles. Since I selecting tangle patterns randomly, sometimes a busy tile works, and sometimes it doesn‘t. I think, for the most part, this one works. Zentangle drawing done with Micron pen on Strathmore Vellum Bristol. Tangles: Chicken Wire Chillon Gloven Hurry Knight‘s Cross Narwal Nzeppel Quabog Snail
