The first Monday of the month and its a ‘use my tangle’ challenge. The tangle chosen is Charlie by Erin Olson. Its a fun, sparky tangle with lots of variations possible, here is my creation.
Every Saturday a group of us get together and have a go at lots of different arts and crafts. We have done stamping, gelli plate, melt pot, iris folding, quilling, kimekomi, candles and many more. Since I started Zentangle® they have wanted to have a go. I am self taught (no czt in North of England UK) so I put this off for quite a while, learning more from books, and using online challenges like ‘I am the Diva‘ and ‘Its a string thing‘ as well as zentangle.com and tanglepatterns.com.
This month I agreed to show them how to do zentangle and the group has never been so quiet, concentrating on their tiles. These are their tiles, all so uniquely different and already coming up with their own variations (can you tell which one is mine? LOL!). I am so thrilled with the results I put them all together to make a picture and designed a border to show them off. Its now hanging in our craft room ready for when they come on Saturday.
I gave them each an art journal to draw the step outs for the tangles Tipple, Hollibaugh, Crescent Moon and Florz. For tile they used string 22. They even got homework as I showed them Betweed, Cadent, Sugarcane and Printemps to use on string 19. I Can’t wait to see how they did.
