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.

Vertical. I actual tangled this tile with all the designs going horizontally. When I was finished, and rotated the tile around, I realized that it worked from EVERY position. That‘s unusual, and it gave me a big thrill. I almost didn‘t shade it, just because it was cool! I finally settled on this position, but if you turn your head, you will be able to see what I mean!

Tomorrow is St. Patrick‘s Day. So, even though it‘s a day early, I‘m using this tile, which looks like a basket of shamrocks! Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Fescu Keeko Munchin Sh-Rock Twing W-2

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.
