String 23 - Zentangle All Around

 Some of you may not know that I host a Facebook Zentangle group called
Zentangle All Around.
I recently started a year long challenge in the group.
I provide strings - a week at a  time - 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
Zentangle 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.
