It's a cute, funny little pattern developed by a couple of kids, whose tutorial video is available at the zentangle.com blog
Little cuties. And they have developed a fun tangle, with lots of scope for creativity!
This was my first go at it:
I love how the spirals sort of lift off, upward from the "petals" that sort of lie flat.
And it has such an easy going, goofy fun look, I thought of coloring it in...with crayons!
They smell as good as they look!
I think it would be wonderful, completely packed with little details!
But I decided to color it.
So, I had another go:
Kept this one a bit simpler with the embellishments, and chose just a few colors to work with. This is how it ended up:
It's so much better with the unity of color, isn't it? But I'm looking forward to playing with it some more, with markers to color in, and as an elegant, glittery piece...which I've seen in a few entries this week already.
I've also gone ahead with the IAST challenge for the week
Fricle has been a favorite for a long time, and I had a tile already colored. This one was finished before I could get any zinger in there, but I really like how it looks so...it had to be finished.
It'll go on someone's desk for St Paddy's day! woot! (not green, not a shamrock, nor much Celtic about it. Oh, well.)
But these are quite Celtic looking, aren't they?
