String 23 – Zentangle All Around

 Some of you may not know that I host a Facebook Zentangle group called
Tangle All Around.
I recently started a year long challenge in the group.
I provide strings – a week at a ┬átime – and the challenge is to tangle a string for every day of the year.
At the end of 2016 each participant will have 366 pieces of artwork that they created themselves.
A treasure trove and beauty, of learning, of advancement and progress.
This is today’s string.
As a prompt this morning I challenged each member to tangle today’s string using at least one tangle they had never tried before.

Here is what I tangled up.

I actually tried three tangles I hadn’t drawn before.

From upper left to lower right you have:

OO Africa (new,) flying geese, gryst (new,) and fracas (new.)

I enjoyed trying some new linework,

I think I’ll be using that gryst a lot in my circular art.

I love to do circles!


If you are interested in expanding your tangle abilities,

or if you are just looking for a way to stay busy,

head on over to Facebook and search for

Tangle All Around.

Send me a join request and I’ll accept you right in.

There is still time to get involved.

  1. Gryst is definitely an 'Alice' tangle! I love the way you used Flying Geese & it's echoed in Fracas. Fascinating to see. I'm still trying to see if I can get a hang of a digital app for tangling these strings – as you say it will be interesting to see the difference between the first tile & the final one. Masterful idea of yours this. Paula (PEP)

    • thanks, paula, it seems group members are embracing the string idea. it is really hard to keep up, though. haha! i'm still about 2 weeks behind
