Sunday's Tangle - That C Thing

"That C Thing" is by texasdoxiemama (Linda Rea). I remember trying this pattern back when I was still new to tangling and I recall that I didn't have much luck with it. No matter what I tried, it just didn't have the same cute look to it as Linda's. Now that I've been drawing for awhile, I thought I'd give the pattern another go and I'm very pleased with the results this time. You'll find the pattern HERE on Flickr.

Friday's Tangle - Zentangle® Project Pack #03 Part-6A

"Project Pack #03 Part-6A" was demonstrated by Maria Thomas in THIS video of the Zentangle Project Pack #03 series. She shows how to draw two tangles and this one comes first in the video. As far as I know, there is no actual name or step-out for this tangle. I colored mine with regular colored pencils and blended the colors with odorless mineral spirits for a watercolor look similar to what Maria did with hers.

Thursday's Tangle - Kuke

"Kuke" is by Katy Abbott CZT and her pattern is found HERE on her blog. The step-out shows to draw the "Y" first and then to draw a circle around it. I found it much easier to draw the circle (orb) first and draw the "Y" inside of it.

I thought they looked a lot like beads so, beader that I am, I strung them together. I added strands of "Beadlines" which are not a part of this pattern. When I added the shading to the "Beadlines", I penciled in and blended the shadow for the strings first. Then, I used my tortillon to smudge in the individual bead shadows along the strings with the graphite already on the tortillon.
