Using TanglePatterns string 047 and patterns Onamato and Fricle. Shame my hand isn’t steadier… usually it’s not too bad, but occasionally it goes wonky. Otherwise I find this one quite pleasing.
Using TanglePatterns string 045 and patterns Bunzo, Chainging and Strircles. Lesson learned! You don’t have to fill the square! I thought with the complexity of this string that the Zentangle would not work out, but I think it did. Perhaps balancing the complexity of the string with the simplicity of the patterns is what did […]
Using TanglePatterns string 044 and variations on the Fife pattern. This wasn’t quite as effective as I’d hoped. Perhaps I shouldn’t have tried to fill the square… That’s something I’m learning, you don’t have to fill the square!
Using TanglePatterns string 043 and patterns Ansu, Hi-Cs, and Fife. I often make the mistake of making grid-based patterns too small, so this time I made Fife really big. I quite like it, although something in between this and my usual grid size is probably best.
Using TanglePatterns string 041 and patterns Drupe, and Suzanne McNeill’s woven pattern. These are two of my favourite patterns at the moment: they are so simple, but effective.
