Flux- Ditto


Flux is a tangle I have loved ever since I learned about Zentangle.  It's a classic shape that reminds me of the comma strokes that I learned in decorative painting years ago.

The latest newsletter from Zentangle.com  gives the step outs for both Rick's and Maria's version of Flux. I put it into the center of this Zendala.  I surrounded it with my tangle, Ditto.  Ditto uses a similiar shape to Flux. The directions for Ditto can be found on my blog here and also in a YouTube video shown below that I made a while back.

  3. Like the ring effect created with your shading of Ditto. These patterns are different enough that they really do compliment each other.

  6. You know I am a great Ditto fan! I resisted the temptation with this Challenge but you are quite right - they go together so well. Love how you effortlessly make a circle with yours here. Axxx

  7. yay ditto! I have a few pages in my sketchbook, playing with that one. Such a fun tangle. the unity that comes from using this tear drop shape, in the more gridlike structure of ditto, and in the free hand style of Flux. Lovely work.

  9. I'm surprised that you used Flux in a ring, because I did too! Great minds think alike;)

  10. I have not seen Ditto before, but I love it! I just learned Lokomotive for the That's New To Me "L" challenge, and the layout is similar. Ditto is like a cross between that and Flux - cool! I love your tile with Flux and Ditto - one freeform and one more structured. Lovely!

  11. It is so funny...I just commented on someone else's blog that their rendering reminded me of tole painting classes years ago and doing comma strokes and how the teacher stressed "praciticing" . Pattern and design have been with us for centuries...really interesting to see people's pictures of their travels with ceramic tiles and Moorish influences. I love your tile and how you have combined the two tangles in the round, really well done!

  12. Well, if ever you wanted evidence that Less is More, here it is. Just the two patterns, similar and yet different and some expert shading. Excellent.

  15. Love the combo and the tangle you designed! Your shading is fantastic. I tackled this with a Zendala this week too--it seems to lend itself to that nicely!
