Working through One Zentangle a Day, Days #7 and 8

Day 7 of One Zentangle A Day was about using tangleations: taking known tangles and adding your own spin. Varying degrees of success with these two tiles. I do like the rounded shattuck (show in both, left side).

Day 8 was learning Purk (the ones that looks like an Easter egg), Vega (the criss-crossed tube). This coincided with the Square One challenge of the week to use Purk. I really like how this tile came out.

Learning Rain

The Square One tangle focus this week was Rain. I think it looks more like lightning. Zentangles are not supposed to be a recognizable picture, but I did go for a representation picture and really like how it turned out. Scrawlz (the leafy line along the top) was new as well. That was fun to draw.

I am the Diva's Weekly Challenge #220

This week's challenge for I am the Diva is to create a zentangle using the All Boxed Up tangle.

Once upon a time, drawing straight lines was easy for me. My hands were a bit shaky here. My major mess ups actually contributed a lot to this tile. I colored over them in black and then drew on top with a gelly roll pen. I think it did an amazing thing for the dark/light balance that I often struggle with. The checkerboard patterning from Knightsbridge felt like a very natural way to tie things together.

There is no shading at all on this tile. Most of the time it helps, I think it may have detracted from the overall here had I used it.
