Not like I did not have enough to do but decided to see what would happen if I had coloring pages available. I have not done any before and have not looked at a lot of them. They are popular. Even our local library has some contest going on and the paper had an article about a group that meets weekly. I wanted to do something that was a little unorthodox. Not totally unusual for me. Came up with two of them and one that I would consider to be more traditional. Cannot say that they were a run away hit at the market but did get people to stop so I could talk with them about classes. Here is what I came up with.
Tangles used (starting in the lower left corner): Merryweather, Cadent, Tripoli, Shattuck, 'Nzeppel, and 3 quasi paisley teardrops.
Tangles used: Featherfall (Carol Ohl), Scroll Feather (Helen Williams), Antidots (Anita Roby-Lavery), Msst (Zentangle®), Wist ( Michelle Beauchamp), Florz variation (Zentangle®), Frondous, Ahh, Fengle, (Zentangle®), Pixioze (Margaret Bremner). The string is Organic (Sayantika Ray)
Tangles used: Flux, Fescu, (Zentangle®), Henna Drum (Jane MacKugler)
That last page was the easiest to do. Not sure if I will do more or not.
I have worked on tiles before, but the largest I did was a 6" square. This one is just a little shy of double that. I think it is about 11.75". Used Microperm and IdentiPen on this. Took a while to complete because of the size. I am planning to cut cork to glue to the bottom so can be used as a trivet or it can be a part of a center piece. Not sure what I will do to seal it. I have some sprays but I also have some water based polyurethane that I have not tried before. If goes well I have about 5 more this size that I can do. Here is the tile without the cork on the underside.
Wanted to keep the design fairly simple so I used tangles where there would be a larger amount of negative space. Only used 3 different tangles. Keeko, in the corners is from Zentangle®. Mumsy is by Sandy Steen Bartholomew. I again used Henna Drum, by Jane MacKugler. Not sure that I would want to do something with grid based tangles. If I really feel daring, may try one using Tripoli or Quandary. I like both of those tangles but have never tried them on anything this large.
Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.
Go Tangle !!
