Embellishment. This Zentangle came from watching a video published by Sakura of America in which Molly begins with the tangle Zenith and then embelished it. The end result was this fabulous diagonal design that looked like the hem of a beautiful skirt! I pretty much followed the video exactly until the end of the tangling part. There, I added the Ruflz tangle to the upper, left side because I felt it needed something more.

Color. This was the first Zentangle that I ever used color on. I even used my markers to create the shading. I didn’t do another full color Zentangle until this year, because I really didn’t like the way this came out, at the time. It just seemed too alien for a Zentangle. Now, I don’t mind color and actually enjoy it once in a while! Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen.

Silliness. Every once in a while, I think my brain falls into some kind of alternate reality of silliness. I wasn‘t sure how I was going to tie all the different random tangles into the string I chose. So I just started drawing with the Btl-Joos… and things kind of evolved from there. The end result was weird but fun! Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen.

Textiles. This tile makes me feel like I‘m peeking into my sewing room and seeing fabrics and trims ready and waiting on my cutting table. Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum using a black Micron pen. Tangles: Beeline Courant Flooka Flux Patena Ruflz Sez
