Well, this is the final week of the Zen-Untangled Project over on Tangle All Around facebook group with Alice Hendon. It’s been great learning all of the current official tangles. I don’t yet have the all down but I’ve done tiles every week.
Throughout this project I’ve learned something about myself; actually I reaffirmed something about myself. It is hard for me to do something every single day, even if I really like that something. And I am more motivated to do things when I have a commitment. In this case, although I enjoy tangling, I don’t take the time to do it every day but am always glad that I make myself do something artsy every week.
I’m looking forward to playing with the retarder I got for the acrylic paints and do some more Bob Ross painting. So Wednesday posts may vary a bit in the coming weeks.
This week the tangles were Vitruvius, Umble, Vega, Man-o-man, Schway, and Emingle. I have done four of these but Vega and Vitruvius were ones I have not done before. And I’ll admit, I didn’t really like Schway before. Well, actually, I don’t think I really liked any of these.
This week the string is very wavy and with so many blocky tangles, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. Here’s the string.
I chose to use Vega and follow the snake-like line line. Then I chose to use Schway in the background on the left and then some Vitruvius in one of the curves.
Here’s the scan and then a picture taken outside in natural overcast light.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to shade this with heavy black bits but think it turned out alright.
Well that’s it for this project and for my post this week. I hope one day I will actually complete the project as Alice intended, creating a tangled keepsake and instructions for all the official Zentangles.
Until next time, God bless,
