In addition to Zendalas Marie also gave us an extensive gallery of different ideas for future (beyond the course) tangling projects. I selected a couple to try now using more of the tangles Marie had given instructions for. Time & again I find the actual act of working on an example enables me to uncover not only information about products but my own responses to techniques or formats of artwork in general.
This tile provoked some thought whilst I worked on it for I found I felt somewhat constrained by the 'landscape' format. There's somehow a freedom & spontaneity in the traditional Zentangle black & white that I find lacking when trying to make a picture like this. I tentatively tried using a little Sansodor with my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils but the Pigma Micron linework started to smear - however not as badly as I'd anticipated - another bit of product knowledge to file away.
tangles: Crescent Moon, Dust Bunnies, Fractal Tree, Girdy, Hazen, Pina, Stack, Toeter, Vermal
coloured using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils with a dry paper stump
One of the examples Marie showed was a Zendala tangled on kraft cardstock & coloured using Tombow Markers plus a white gel pen. My kraft card tile uses the tangle Tore-Up with K-Ning inside it.
