Triangular Stringing

August's Challenge (Number 17) for the Chocolate Baroque Zentangle Group consists of a triangular string of our choice - it can be one taken from the Strings Resource at TanglePatterns.com or one we've drawn.

I chose to sketch two differently sized overlapping triangles loosely in the manner of a traditional Star of David symbol (see superimposed coloured lines) & started off tangling the triangles thus formed using Paradox. I used Ixorus for the centre & surprisingly created another 6 triangles.

tangles: Ixorus, Paradox, Tipple

Wonderful movement in this design - the tangle in the centre is one I don't remember seeing before. Did you mean August??

Yes I did mean August - thanks for that, now amended.

Beautiful Zentangle art Paula. I love the combination of tangles and your shading. I have a hard time to remember the names of the patterns. Have a great day, Shirleyx

I love the Star of David, and you've illustrated it so beautifully with your tangles. The feeling of movement is mesmerizing. Blessings!

That's amazing, it looks so seamless - I wouldn't have a clue how to start.

Gosh but this is amazing Paula!!
I think this has to be my favourite (so far!)
It's so detailed and intricate, and perfectly structured.

Fabulous!!

Big hugs

Hi Paula, just back from a long weekend away, love the tile especially the bubble effect, will pop over to see the CB page to see what everyone has been up to soon. I do like drawing paradox and combined with the circles it has loads of movement, my eyes are going squiffy looking at the middle. Squiffy being the technical term for my eyes wandering about the page trying to follow Ixorus. Brilliant.
