Wow, Drawings, what a delicious tangle to play with! Last week our Shading Zentangle® Facebook group used this new tangle by Zentangle Inc as our focus pattern, but I was so busy with the holidays, all I could do was drool over the beautiful artwork. 

When I finally managed to sit down and play with it, I saw what the fuss was all about. WHAT A FUN TANGLE! A little high focus, it's true, but it creates almost automatic incredible overlap and rich imagery. 

Here is the line-art:

Even the line-art without shading is cool. Since it was such a high focus tangle, I combined it with some comfort tangles: Crescent Moon, Baton (Carole Ohl), a modified version of Flukes (the scaly things) and Florz. Obviously I had to add a little bit of echo lines. Does anybody see a peacock there? 

Here's another pic, a little closer.

I also tried -- per suggestion of someone on my Facebook group, a new blending tool called Doodlestix. Didn't use it much, but I did enjoy it. The silicone tip is very soft and not as raspy as a blending stump or tortillion. You can find it here:

And finally, I did record the entire process of making this tangle, so..... if possible, I will post a Video Class on it soon. Stay tuned! If you are interested in knowing when the Video Class is available for this tile, contact me here

Alright, tanglers and creatives! This is probably my last tangle for the year. And what a fun year it was! Signing out of 2016, and onward to 2017. I'll see you on the other side!
