Classic. When I was drawing this Zentangle, I realized that it was becoming just way too complicated and busy. Even while I was shading it with the brown pencil, I knew I would have to do something to bring back some high contrast, or it would just be a really muddy tile. At first I was thinking I could add gold, metallic ink. But that really wouldn’t pop enough here.

Portals. So many choices. Where will they all lead. Some appear to be places with natural growth and others more rigid, enclosed. So many choices.

Afterwards. The party is over. They have all gone home. I think I’ll clean up the mess in the morning. To me, this tile looks like party favors or decorations left on the floor when the celebration is long over. The Cruffles look a bit like carpeting and Florz actually looks like tile.

Simple divisions. The string for this tile was very simple. The space was divided into three sections with horizontal lines. The tile was then divided roughly in half by the vertical line. I did this to remind myself that I don‘t need to have a complicated string to make a pretty design. Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen.
