Learning to Tangle

Ran across Zentangle through a friend and decided to give it a shot. Needing some direction, I tried I am the Diva's most weekly challenge: #215 Labyrinth.

I drew the labyrinth in as a string and then allowed it to fade to the background as I filled in the spaces around it, picking new tangles each layer out from the center. My labyrinth was a bit off center, so follow the river path to it.

I'm still very new at this, so there's no shading, and I haven't quite worked out a line density that I like yet. But overall, I love the result of this.


Tangles used: Kuke, Flux, Tri-Po, Half Onion, 'Nzeppel, River, Tipple, Fescu, and Hepmee.

Hi there!

I found your entry on the Diva's blog and wanted to say hi. ^^

I think this week's challenge is quite the challenge! *haha* I haven't tried anything yet but I'm planning to. Your patterns look great but I'm missing the shading a little bit.

And btw.: your dog is a beauty! ;o)

The picture is a bit bigger than the actual image (which is 3.25"), I was a bit intimidated by shading such small shapes. I'll get there eventually.

And, thanks, they are pretty dogs!

It's Brie!! Yay!!!

This is great! I have been super inspired by Zentangles I see but haven't really given it a shot. Your outcome is glorious! What kind of pen are you using?

Hi, CJ!

The actual, physical image is only 3.25", so the lines in person are much thinner. I'm just using a Uniball Vision Needle .5 mm Roller Ball pen that I picked up in the supermarket. Paper is an old sketch book.

I never heard of this Zentangle thing but it looks like something I would enjoy! I like yours!

I think it would be right up your alley. Quite fun and relaxing.

I had the same problem. Getting one drawn properly and getting it centered on the space was more than I could figure. I settled for getting it drawn halfway properly.

Yep, I gave it two tries, and the third one had to stay where it was. :)
