string idea 04
Over at Tanglepatterns.com there is a section for string ideas. Getting the 'string', the initial starting place, is sometimes a challenging thing for my students, so I'm happy there is this resource available to them. This string is number 04 in the resources and it was contributed by Sue Agnew. Follow THIS LINK to see it on her site.
I'm happy to get back to doing a true Zentangle here. I do a lot of zendalas and ZIAs (zentangle inspired artwork), and I add color frequently, but this follows the core of what zentangle is.
Zentangle, at its core, is a 3 1/2 inch paper tile. It is started with a pencil frame and pencil string. All the tangles are done with a black pen and the shading is done with a pencil. No erasing.
