Until doing this tile, I had not tried my hand at Footlites. I’ve seen it and admired it but hadn’t given it a go, so I thought it would make a good tangle on the bottom stripe. I decided to have Footlites shining up on the second stripe too.
Since the WZTV (Weekly Zentangle Tangle Video) focus tangle is ‘Nzepple, which is a favorite tangle of mine, I decided to use it on the third stripe. This is one of those tangles that I really struggled with learning how to draw. I think my confusion started with just how to get the lines drawn to start out. But later when someone else introduced a different way to begin ‘Nzepple with lines from all different directions, it gave me a freedom so that I didn’t struggle with all the lines being just so. That’s when it became a favorite tangle.
I decided to crown my tile with Zenith on my top stripe. Since I was running out of space I decided to go with the version that puts the circles on both sides of the points instead of at the top of each point. I really should play around with Zenith a bit more because I keep forgetting to make my initial curves deep and close together but it works anyway.
Here is a tile I did last week. I wanted to play with CanT a bit more, so this is what I came up with. I did one large CanT in the center of the tile and then a larger one around it. Then I did some Hollibaugh behind it. I love the effect the blackened areas produce.
Oh! I had drawn a loop in my border, so I made it a pearl sitting on the hollibaugh.
I really appreciate the kind words left by those commenting last week. You were very encouraging.
Thanks also to those that clicked the “like” heart at the bottom of the page. It’s nice to know you liked it.
Well, that’s it for this week.
Until next time, God bless,
