Over on The Diva’s blog, Laura posted a challenge to create a Zentangle using the newest tangle pattern released: Molygon. So other people had already uploaded their examples to Laura’s post so I went and checked them out. They were as unique and varied as the people who had posted them. Wow. So much variation on one little pattern. I picked one that I kind of liked and that I thought I could actually recreate something similar to it over on Suzanne Fluhr’s blog and I went to work. I didn’t do an identical tangle but I’m sure you can see the similarity. I really liked how she had added the shading and I really want to incorporate that aspect. I also was tired of the black and white and decided to add some color as well. Yellow watercolor in the background, a Prisma Colored Pencil in a purple/lavender hue and a little white and of course some shading in graphite.
It is a little wonky and elongated but I think I like it OK. Honestly, I started adding elements and I didn’t want to stop! LOL So, it got a little elongated and warbley but it looks organic and alive to me because of the wonkiness (is that a word?!). 🙂
Created with black Micron pens in a ~3″x5″ Handbook journal, shaded with 6B graphite pencil. Added watercolor and colored pencils.
