Recently I stumbled upon my current favorite Zentangle site: TanglePatterns.com. Linda is a born organizer and has a huge list of alphabetized tangles. I admit I never paid much attention to the names of the tangles. After reading your comments and her website, I was thinking maybe I should learn at least SOME of the names, especially since I plan to be a CZT very soon. So, here is my latest tangle, back to basics. I challenged myself to use only “official” tangles and to use only tangles I’d never tried before.*
How many do you recognize? (Hint: I used Cubine, Florz, Meer, Msst, Opus, Onomato, Sez, and the triangle thing that I lost the name of.)
(*OK, so I “cheated.” I have no idea if the corner fillers are even real tangles. I just needed something to fill in.)
It’s looking kind of plain yet. Tomorrow, I will show the shaded version. I think the idea of shading is pure genius. It’s what sets Zentangles apart form just plain doodling.
