Zen-Untangled Week 14 Tile: Stricles, Squill, Printemps

I got lucky this week and only had to draw the step-outs this week, which were Squill and Patena, the latter of which I’d never even heard of before. The other tangles were all familiar to me already: ING, Munchin, OOF (out of focus), Patena, Printemps, Squill and Strircles. I’ve got to say Stricles is my favorite, by far. Actually, most of them are tangles I don’t like very much, although I do like Squill somewhat, now that I’ve learned it.

Here is the string suggested for the week. It was suggested to use at least three of this week’s tangles on this week’s tile. (Yay! I remembered to take a picture before I did any tangling. :) )

I’ve been looking forward to using Stricles, so I’ve included it. :) The X section just lended perfectly to Squill. Then I was stumped as to how to add a third tangle to the tile since all the sections would be full. Then I realized that I’d put a border, so I could use some of that space. But what to put there? Hello filler–Printemps. :)

Here is the scan and then picture taken in natural light (it was a nice sunny day here, finally).

Here it is after I did some shading (scan first and then natural light). I also thickened the lines for the first cross lines of Squill and I think it looks better.

I like how it turned out. Squill looks kind of puffy and a few of the printemps look a bit raised. :)

Well, that’s my artistic endeavor for this week. I hope you are making time for art. It isn’t something that comes readily to me; I have to make time for it. At the very least, I hope you are taking time to do some things that help to de-stress you and bring you joy. :)

Until next time, God bless,
