I’m building a library of tiles done with a single fragment from the Zentangle Primer. Today, I decided to tackle J15, using blue and brown ink. I love the effect this tangle produced when used en masse. The large, interlocking circles receded to stand behind the blue, web-like shapes, so I simply accented the illusion by shading with the appropriate colored pencil.

Creating tiles like this, with fragments, is kind of like discovering buried treasure. You try to visualize what they will look like, but even if you understand the pattern, actually seeing it is still surprising!
