In the spirit of Inktober, looking at the tangle recommended for today, Amarin, I decided that I needed to continue what I am calling my “planter phase” where I pair an organic tangle with something that could look like the outside of a decorative planter. I chose Tortuca to be the planter tangle. Both tangles are rewarding and easy! Great combination!! Click on the tangle names above to get to the stepouts and have some fun of your own.
Jake Parker created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. Fellow CZT, Stephanie Jennifer has put together a challenge list for tanglers. Here is a link to all of the tangles, which includes links to step outs. Have fun with this!!
One of the extra fun things about Zentangle® is the different results with the same instruction. It’s a beautiful testimony to how we are all unique and create so much beauty when we embrace our uniqueness and share it.
Here are some close up shots from those who emailed me their work. If you were on one of the calls, or if you couldn’t make it and want to give this a shot, I would LOVE to share what you have done – Pop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with it and I will add it to this gallery! Click on any picture to enlarge.
Thanks to everyone that joined in on the fun!!! I will add pictures as I receive them, check back by clicking the title of the blog so you see it from the site. Also, for those that have supported these free classes directly or by purchasing Zentangle products from my store, THANK YOU!
