Following are the tangles I produced in our two hours together.
I tend to use lots of curly, loopy patterns, so was happy to find a straight lined pattern that I LOVE. I’m currently reading The Canopy by Angela Hunt. This tile reminds me of a dark rain forest with vines.
I named this tile: Canopy.
When we ‘dropped the string’ for this tile, I made more loops and spaces than any one in the class, so I finished this at home. It reminds me of a meadow in a thunder and lightning storm. The name of this tile: Rainy Meadow.
This little flower was fun to do. I think it would be adorable cut out with a scalloped circle die and used on a card. I titled this tile: Funky Flower.
For this tile, Jeanne challenged us to use our non-dominant hand. A good practice that forces us to use the other side of our brain. It was hard to do, but oh-so satisfying to see the pattern come together as we tangled. When I was finished I felt as though I was looking out of an airplane and seeing the fresh tilled fields of farmland. I titled this tile: Farmland.
Odd how my brain was so focused on the earth when choosing titles for my work.
At the end of class, we were presented with a little ‘wand’. The card reads: To help inspire the Zentangle in you! Relax – Reflect – Renew – Replenish & Reveal (the artist within)
