Use Tangle Patterns string #3



It's fun to use strings and just go with it. It's even more fun to me to use mono tangles where I only use one tangle pattern for the whole piece. I find it so relaxing to just keep going.

The first tile uses 'Striping'. As you can see, this is a great tangle to add shading to. 'Paradox' is the tangle in the lower tile and I just changed the colored Micron pen I was working with in each section of the string. I did my shading with colored pencils. I thought it was too heavy though so I (GASP) used an eraser and was left with a very light shading that I was very happy with.

  1. What beautiful monotangles! You're really good at shading. I occasionally use an eraser too. I think as long as you're tangling in pen it's forgivable. ;o) I've gotten a ton of blog spam lately too... I hardly had any and then all of a sudden I was just getting hammered. I get several a day.

  2. Love, love. Your striping is perfect. I'm taking it home to my Zentangle file to refer to as the example of how to make sparkles really pop. I must go too fast; mine never look like that.

  5. These are lovely. I like how Bunzo can look like it has a nib on it, similar to a pen or marker.

  10. Great monotangles. The highlighting on the Bunzo is great and adds a lot. Like the color variety on the second.

  12. I thought the string lent itself perfectly to monotangles and yours are the proof that I was right! They are really textural and fabulous!

  13. Two very different effects with monotangles! Love the fullness and shine in the first and the wonderful color in the second
