MCC All About Zentangle - More Wk 2

Links: MCC (My Creative Classroom), Marie Browning

tangles: Chemystery, Coil,  Happy Dance, Tipple

In my final tile for the second week I wanted to experiment a little with the Coil tangle & to try some of the other tangles that Marie taught us. She also introduced us to a grid based tangle of her own called 'Happy Dance' which I was particularly keen to try as I'm rather partial to the grid format.

In my previous post I used TanglePatterns String 002 & I wanted to use that again as part of my contribution to the Chocolate Baroque Zentangle Group's current challenge theme based upon the word "Favourite." I have a particular liking for taking something - in this case it's the string & the Coil tangle - & exploring different aspects of it. The type of shading technique I used for the Chemystery tangle (top right) is rapidly becoming a favourite of mine & my liking for grids also make this tile a good illustration of the "Favourite" theme.

Your shading is great Paula, I especially like that under Chemysetry, must have a go at Happy Dance as well. Not tangled for ages.
