A String of Circles

The 11th Challenge for the Chocolate Baroque Zentangle Group is to use a circular string. It is up to each individual to choose how to draw the circle or multiples thereof which may be the same or differing in size.

tangles: Auraknot, Crescent Moon, Fishnet, Jester, Nzepple, Printemps
I simply picked up my reel of double-sided tape & drew around the inside of it 3 times moving the reel without thinking before drawing the portion of the circle that fell within the area of my 'tile'. When I looked at the result I immediately thought 'Auraknot' so that was my first tangle. The remaining tangles were chosen by throwing my Icosahedron dice & using the tangles corresponding to each number on a list I compiled whilst working through the MCC Zentangle course last year.

This has worked really well - great combination of tangles. I've not managed any for a little while so must get myself back into the swing.

A beautiful tile Paula, I love the way you look down through the Auraknot tangle and the shadow on the fishnet looks brilliant, fabulous shading and a very interesting tile. Hope to join in with the challenges soon, not tangled in ages.

Wow! Stunning work. I love the way you make it so 3 dimensional with the perfect shadows

This is beautiful, Paula! I love how a Celtic knot representing the Trinity emerged as you worked on the tile, especially since I know how spiritual you are. Blessings!

Paula, although I still have no desire to have a go at this particular craft I can't help but be intrigued and impressed by how clever you are at it. Your work is absolutely stunning. The depth you have achieved purely with lines and a smidge of shading is amazing. The bottom right corner for example really draws the eye down into the depths and the upper half of the top circle really looks as though the 'netting' is standing away from the surface with the shadow lines you have drawn. Brilliant work!
