A while back I had joined this Facebook group: Random Acts of Zentangle which anyone who is on Facebook can join; https://www.facebook.com/groups/RandomActsOfZentangle/
This group has nearly 500 members world wide who make and distribute Zentangles in various spots they visit, some quite inventive, like the card slot in an ATM machine. I've had a pile of completed tiles in my purse for a while, and usually forget to distribute them, but I made up for it today! Here's a shot of the Zalentines...
I feel very thankful that I have a lot of love in my life. Which includes making Art and practicing Zentangle.
With love in mind I have been practicing the Tangle Pattern, Heart Rope, by CZT, Bunny Wright from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. I love it for it's simplicity and yet as it undulates in a out, it has a nice Celtic line drawing feel as well. With Bunny's permission, I have made an (amateur) video of this lovely pattern for you to view and use for practice. Thanks, Bunny!
Well, I tried to download it here, but it wouldn't work for some reason, so to view this video you will have to go to this link and "like" the Zentangle Spokane Facebook page which has the video and so much more! https://www.facebook.com/ZentangleSpokane You can also find the drawn step outs at this link: http://tanglepatterns.com/2013/01/how-to-draw-heartrope.html
Bunny is a fantastic Zentangle artist and she has allowed me to share with you, for your inspiration, one of her recent pieces entitled; Opus 101. Way to go, Bunny!
