Balance and harmony was today’s theme. What a perfect thought. We all could use some of that in our lives- right? Balancing our finances, our households and relationships. Bringing harmony to our emotions, marriage and work-life. These things are not only important to our very existence, but it is also important in creating art.
Day twelve asked me to look at all the patterns I learned and try to see similarities between the different tangles and combine them to make a balanced Zentangle tile. I approached this tile a little differently by starting with circles as my strings in a symmetrical arrangement. I decided I would fully play with tangles that were very similar and have the gradually blend into each other. In one circle I used Flukes and Florz and in another I used Knightsbridge and a new tangle called Beeline. In the largest circle shape I combined newly learned tangles Chillon and Bales.
I am not sure if I achieved a perfectly balanced tile, but I did feel at peace while created it. What more could I ask for?
