This week's challenge from Iamthediva was to use the new tangle Fife by Molly Hollibaugh. The instructions can be found in the Zentangle Newsletter. As I was practicing the tangle, I thought that one rendition looked like poinsettias. I thought they'd look good in a basket but I'm not very good at some of the basket weave type tangles. I decided instead to use Hollibaugh, which interestingly enough, is also by Molly Hollibaugh. And...I know how to draw that one. I don't know the name of the other tangle.
As an aside, if you ever want to try drawing tangles, there are a number to be found at TanglePatterns.com. At one point, I got it in my head that I'd draw every tangle found on this website. Needless to say, I got over that real quick. I have enough challenges.
When I first discovered Zentangle, I visited the official Zentangle site at Zentangle.com for more information and supplies. Because I seldom use the official 3x3 inch tiles for my tangles, it's really more like Zentangle-inspired art (ZIA). Drawing on the tiles makes me nervous so most of the time I use a little sketchbook.
Here's my entry:
