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!!!
