A New Year,............A New Tangle
Yes,.......It has been quite a long time!
I have found it it really hard for me to keep up on all the different social media venues. (I don’t know how all of you moms out there do it,.....?? Please share your secret ;0).......)
Anyways, the main reason I’m posting, and I do have to say, “It does feel kinda good to do so.”
I have created a new tangle. I stumbled across it when doing my daily Zenuari 2018 challenges, put out by Anoeska Waardenburg. So Day 13, ‘Make Your Own Fragment’, is how it appeared to me. I saw this Greek ceramic tile on Pinterest, and thought that I could use a fragment of it to create my new fragment. And so it was, “Eleetz’ was born.
The name is ’tile’ backwards, but the double EE’s are from the word Greek, and the added Z represents Zenuari.
I looked around, there are similar tangles but I do feel it is original. So here it is.
|It really is quite easy. Have fun with Eleetz!|
Now just for fun, try drawing ‘Eleetz’ like you would ‘Mooka’. If you’re like me and ‘mooch’ is one of your favorites, you can draw ‘Eleetz’ all in one pen swoop and not have to lift your pencil. Just let it flow. As you can see it is versatile to. It really is an addicting tangle, if you like organic, flowing tangles. I have been trying to study the Vintage Baroque, floral scroll, filagree style, and it is a beautiful combo of ‘icanthis’ and ‘mooch’. So I think ‘eleetz’ will flow right along with that style. Please give it a try and if you do, post it on Instagram with hashtag #eleetz and add @theartzenter so I can see what you have created.
Here is the fragment I used for the Zenuari prompt. Remember it is just a fragment and from the fragment I created the tangle.
|Here is ‘eleetz’ fragment and in a spiral Reticula. In the lower right corner you can see the fragment.|
Please, if you are interested in learning about fragments and reticula, I recommend you purchase the book "Primer Volume 1”, from Zentangle Headquarters. It took me a bit to wrap my head around the understanding of the two, but once I got it,.......it was like an epiphany!!! Wow!!
So many new ways to create your tiles.
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!
