Day 5 of One Zentangle A Day
introduced printemps (the spirals) and isochor (the parallel lines). Mixed them with Fescu and Knightbridge. Kind of looks like an alien underwater scene. I like this one a lot, though learning isochor took a while. It's more free form than I am.
The second exercise for Day 5 was to make an Artist Trading Card size Zentangle. Regular tiles are 3.5" x 3.5", ATCs are 3.5" x 2.5".
This one kind of reminds me of a bug. I was in a loopy kind of day, so there is some underlying similarities in the strings used. Used Knightsbridge (I love that particular checkerboard), Fescu (love the little antennae), Crescent Moon, Tipple, Hollibaugh, and Pokeroot.
Day 6 introduced Mooka, Amaze (which I call stipple in free motion quilting, though stipple means something completely else in drawing), and Flux. The flux kind of looks fern like here, and the mooka is almost a heart. Add tipple (the mini circles) and fescu for more flavor. I like this one, because my string and patterns worked well together.
One more day left in week one of the book. It focuses on modifying patterns you know into similar designs. I've already done some of that, I just have put pen to paper. :)
