May 12th was a free cone day at Häagen-Dazs shops and to celebrate Adele Bruno at Tickled To Tangle themed this week's It's a String Thing (#92)
with sweet sounding tangles: Butter, Cayke, Chocobox, and Kandy Ribnz.
All of these tangle were new to me. I tried this challenge twice. I was unhappy with my first tangle, as it felt crowded, chaotic and flat. I was too same in scale size. I like my second version much better.
Chocobox reminds me a double cartoon dinosaur head. It was fun to do - there are couple black sheep chocoboxes who wanted to start life as figure 8s. I stumbled upon a very minimal version of it while learning it that I really like. I also had no idea that my Cayke tangle took on a life of it's own until I started looking up how to shade it when I completed the second tile.
There i something very airy and floating about this Zentangle. And I felt happy at the end, so I guess it was good medicine.
The happy version:
And the chaotic version:
