I've had some time to doodle in my notebook again. I was trying some of the past challenges that are out there. Here I have using my initials as the string (left doodle). Can you see the C and R? Hehehe.. that was fun and different. I tried using some new as well as old tangles. And I totally messed up the daggerly circle but oh well.
The right doodle was just a random string where I was playing with borders and tangles. Oh, and I forgot.. I decided to outline tiles onto the page.. I can fit two in this notebook of the standard 3.5x3.5 Zentangle tiles on a page. So here I was going back to more of the traditional Zentangles versus the ZIA projects that I usually do in my notebook.
This was a section of the K drawing in the Doodling Together beta testing. I messed this up too.. LOL. I was trying to play with contrast and tones in this. My plan was to make the letter portion dark. I did this by using a darker fill pattern but also making it a smaller scale so it was even denser and automatically bringing out the letter part. I wanted to contrast it with the diamond shaped object in the tile and at the same time NOT lose the tile into the background. I have been playing with breaking up large sections with multi sized and shaped Paradox patterns. So that's what I did this one with. I then planned on making the background a dense grey. I had wanted to use patterns that created light fills with linear patterns. I confused myself by putting in the Florz. I meant to put in another linear pattern that filled it as the other corners were done. Oh well.. there are no mistakes right?? :)
I finally did my Easter Eggs! This is in my notebook in a 3.5 inch framed tile. I used half of an actual plastic Easter egg to make the string. It was the perfect size for the tile. These were fun.
This is the last tile I completed for the K drawing for the beta test. I was just redoing some patterns I had done before but not frequently. I was trying to keep the other two areas simple while still filling the letter with a darker pattern.
That's it for now!
