Day Thirty Two, Creation Thirty Two

imageOh what fun today’s creation was! Today’s challenge was to take a familiar shape and break some boundaries! I decided for this tile that I would use a cute little bird shape. Once that was decided, I filled in my bird with all sorts of tangles: “Tagh”, “Tat”, “Finery”, “Betweed”, “Nekton”, “Sedgling”, “Fesu”, “ “NZeppel”, “Shattuck”, and “Eke”.  To have my bird break some boundaries, I added a simple crisscrossing border around the edges. For some finishing touches, I added spring-like tangles like Sedgling, Fescu, and Tat. Shading was a must for this creation since it added so much depth and character to my little bird.


I really loved how this tile came out and so did my husband when I showed it to him. He even asked if I could give it to him, but I not sure that I want to yet. I think I am going to hang onto it for a while first J


Now here’s a little challenge, since I used so many tangles in this tile, try to find where I used all of them! Have fun…


Day Ten, Creation Ten


Well, here I am, I finally made it to day ten! There was a slight delay in posting this one- my birthday got in the way, but now I am back on track. Birthday celebrations aside, learning these new tangles took some time and practice. I tend to practice in my journal so I don’t waste tiles. Perhaps I will begin posting more journal entries, but one thing at a time right? I am just glad I have so far committed  to posting about my One Zentangle A Day Challenge.

So here it is my little creation. This tile features three brand new tangles called “Flukes”, “Finery” and “Echoism”. Echoism is the tangle that is has a flowy (yes -it’s a word, or at least it is now) figure eight look to it. Flukes features a repetitive diamond pattern and Finery reflects a leaf-like appearance. Together they make for an interesting tile. Hope you “like”
