Last week's challenge used tangle patterns that began with the letter 'Y' in honor of the string's creator, Yamit Fridman. Here are the submissions for you to enjoy. Look over them, study the way other tanglers use patterns, shading, and enhancements. Use their work as inspiration, and keep up your practice of Zetangle®.
And speaking of the 'practice of Zentangle' - Ragged Ray sent an eloquent note with her tile this week. In part, she said, "This practice really feels like it has a natural progression of learning within it - tangles repeat and build and warp earlier ones." Her tile is a wonderful example:
She added texture with her tangle choices, beautiful lines, and shading. Her gravel backdrop is a nice added touch too!
She said that it was not for the challenge, but she couldn't resist sending it in. Why? Because the string lines reminded her of wine bottles. She tangled them in with Linda Farmer's patterns Zin and Rosé. Now, that is clever!
And the tiles selected for honors this week were sent in by Joan Delony. Joan said that she drew out her tile twice because she "played with shading". Her work is a wonderful example of the effect that shading has on tangles and how it can be used in varying degrees to change the look and feel of a piece.
I have a little something coming in the mail for you!
