Weekly Challenge #111

This is my take on "More-Mooka-Madness Monotangle-Mania" for the Diva's weekly challenge.

Again the pencil shading is darker IRL.

Zendala Dare #49

Another fun template this week from The Bright Owl. Just noticed I forgot to shade - I'll do that tomorrow :)

Here is the same Zendala with shading. I'm never able to get pencil shading to show very well in scans - there's more of an effect in person.

Adventures in Monotangles #3

I struggled with this adventure! Someone needs to invent more triangular tangles LOL

I drew two and a half zentangles and then decided my first one was the best. Here it is done with Insydout.

Decided to finish the "half" monotangle that I had started. I think this tangle is Feathers.

Week 110 Zentangle Challenge #2

I think I like this no box thing LOL. This is another larger piece about 6 x 5. I don't know why I thought I had to draw small Zentangles - unless it's the 5 or 6 years of doing ATCs and 4 x 4 chunkies. It's not like I don't have bigger paper :D

Week 110 Zentangle Challenge

This week we were to think outside the box. I drew a large tangle (5.5 x 6.5 inches) and used a large pen - .35 mm - LOL
I started my tangle in the center with no planned boundary. I just kept going until I felt like it had a finished balance.

Zendala Dare #49

Drawn for weekly Zendala Dare by The Bright Owl. The template is given and you get to fill it up as you please. I find them very relaxing because it's so repetitive. Tried some color on this one.

More Monotangling

I was inspired by Roy and his tangled icosahedron. So I just had to try a tangled flexagon. You can get detailed instructions for making a flexagon at Aunt Annie's Crafts

I drew variations of Rick's Paradox in all the triangles,
using six different ink colors for each side.

Two folded views and flexing in action!

Adventures in Monotangles #2

This is my first (or maybe second) time to ever draw this tangle pattern, 'Rick's Paradox' - much easier to do than it looks.

Monotangle Fountain

Uh oh - I may not be able to stop drawing this tangle. Here is an easy star - but it's hard to resist filling in the side triangles :)

WOW - the star disappeared!

Week 109 Zentangle Challenge

Zentangle Quest - this is just a small sampler to see if I could make tangle patterns go around coulumns - not that easy to do!

Adventures in Monotangles #1

This is my very first Monotangle - it's a Zentangle done with one tangle pattern only. I chose one of my favorites - Jonquil

Zendala Dare 47

Another fun challenge from the Bright Owl. This week we were to remove some lines from the template. I think it's obvious which ones I removed :D

Alice in Wonderland

This ZIA is a 4x4 chunky. I will be adding some dangly ribbons and beads.
