For this week's challenge, the Diva asked us to work with two tangle patterns, or as named on the Diva's blog, a Duotangle. The task was to create a piece of art using only Pea-nuckle and Well, official Zentangle® patterns.
I have loved Pea-nuckle since I learned it at my CZT training from the creator Molly Hollibaugh (yes, if you tangle, that name should sound familiar!). I think it's a pattern that takes a little thinking and works best when the original columns of S's line up closely. I sometimes find that patterns like this can require a bit more focus. I have to be in the right state of mind to use patterns like Pea-nuckle, and as in this challenge, Well. This was definitely a thinking challenge.
I don't feel like I've totally embraced the pattern Well yet. Every time I go to draw it, I end up with a variation of Yew-Dee by CZT Peg Farmer. I love Yew-Dee. My first attempt at the challenge ended up with Pea-nunckle in one corner and a Bales-free version of Yew-Dee because my tangle memory directed my Micron to follow its usual Yew-Dee flow. I still love how this piece came out.
The second one features several sizes of Pea-nuckle and two versions of Well.
These are numbers 4 and 5 of my 53 card ATC swap. Only 48 to go!
