The Square One: Purely Zentangle focus is Helen Williams’ tangle Steps. I thought I might use it for my monotange but I hadn’t tried my hand at Steps yet and since I didn’t want to mess up my challenge tile, I decided to use a different tangle for the challenge tile.
I considered which tangle could look like leaves and bark. I didn’t go through very many options in my head before I considered Amaze or Stiritup. I decided it was a good match, besides amaze is a very easy tangle to draw.
Here is what I came up with.
I then decided to try my hand at steps. Here is my first attempt.
It is not shaded and I know that adds tons to a tangle but I do not like this. I think it is about my base line. So I attempted it again on an ATC size tile.
It is better, still not shaded but still better. I like this a bit better than the first attempt but that isn’t saying much. I guess I’m going to have to look at what others have done with it to figure out how I should draw the base line.
I really appreciate the committed commenters! I seldom have the opportunity to check out other’s submissions to the challenge, so when I am so far down the list of contributors, number 51 this last week, I am thrilled that there are people that persevered and even took the time to comment too!
Thank you Ulrike, Maggiebee, AnneMarie, and Jean. I really appreciate your encouragement. And Jean, thanks for pointing out that what I did around purk and hollibaugh was to add the aura enhancement.
Also, thanks to the two that clicked the like heart as well.
Until next time, God bless,
