birdy feet


The tangle pattern chosen to use this week is a fairly simple one. It's called 'birdy feet'. I started looking at some of the other tiles others had done with this tangle and I was impressed. It started me thinking of ways I could use this tangle 'outside the box'. 

You can see in the picture below how I started to form a simple zendala using only the birdy feet tangle pattern. It grew and grew, and even flipped directions in the finished piece. I felt I had to add lots of embellishments though. I'm not sure if the result reminds me of an American Indian design or a Pennsylvania Dutch design. Whatever, it was fun.

It was all done with a blue Micron 05 pen. I decided not to add shading but to simply leave it as a graphic design.

I hope everyone has a Happy 4th of July!!!

  2. I really like what you did with this very simple tangle. Both zendalas are lovely, like the blue, and I guess the first one is probably my favorite by a little bit.

  11. Wow! Very creative use of this tangle. Your creation of the zendala reminds me of the snowflakes that I saw in Sandy B's book . Looks great.
