This lead me to wondering what tangle library/collection sites people use. The only one I use is http://tanglepatterns.com/ but I have stumbled across others. The tangles on tanglepatterns.com seem closer to Rick and Maria's definition of a tangle than the tangles I've found on these other sites. The next question is does it matter so long as you are not selling your work and using the Zentangle name?
Your thoughts and experiences?
Diva #311 - circle square string theory
I could have played with this theme for ages. Here's my first tile, using Pepper, Dex and Box Spirals.
My next includes Bales, Tipple, Ponio, Dex and Florz, with a little gel pen which hasn't come out in the photo.
Made by Joey
My Made by Joey tile is about the letter O and uses O2, Onion Drops and Omen. The colour comes from 3 different Mist sprays (orange, fairy floss and yellow). I found the base line for Onion Drops was much harder to draw than it looked on the step-out. Time for some practice I think.
Here's an Opus tile that I worked on over a couple of days recently. Tangles used include Enchanted (which I found on pattern-collections.com), Squill, Golven, Tripoli, Rixty, Mooka, Marasu, and a tangellation of Zander. The latter Tanglation is one that Michele Beauchamp CZT uses quite a bit and which she taught me a couple of years ago. The colours are Denim and Green Mist Spray.
I've working with a personal trainer at my local gym. He pushes me hard in a good way. As a result of that I'm getting noticeably stronger and fitter. Pity the cancer fatigue still kicks in. C/F just pays a visit whenever it thinks I'm forgetting that I am and always will be a cancer survivor. Time past diagnosis doesn't change that fact.
This week I attended a two day Google Apps for Education conference. It was brilliant and I came away with so many ideas. Need to take some time to play with some of the Apps I learnt about to see how I can use them with my students. Would never have thought my technology skills would get to this level.
This weekend is Easter so I have The Husband home and not at work for 4 days. Waiting for us out the front of the house is a large skip/hopper. We will fill it with junk from the garage, the yard and inside the house. Looking forward to a massive de-clutter.
Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.
