Today is the start of the Chinese New Year and this year is the year of the Rooster. For that reason the prompt today is to make it a good year with a Zentangle drawing inspired by the year of the rooster.
Today we are supposed to leave some white space in our Zentangle drawing. I love to do that. The first tiles I tangled had a lot of white space. I never filled the whole tile. By and by my tangle compositions got busier. I think I am still trying out and it depends on my mood. Today I used a tile which I had spilled on tea last year and decided to tangle only the stain and leave the rest of it white. And I really love it. I am still a supporter for white space:)
Todays prompt is to first to find some stuff around the house and arrange it on the tile. Than trace the shapes with pencil onto the tile and so we have the string! And tangle! I gathered my stuff in the kitchen. A piece from my “kitchen aid”, a spaghetti-fork, a cookie-cutter in starshape und the handle of a fork. So I got an interessting string:)
Today I had a really peaceful and calming tangle evening, enjoying every deliberate stroke and I really went out of my comfort zone and passed the border! Meaning I stuck with the “elegance of limit” and just ignored the “border” of the string.
here you can see my string, you probably can see where I passed the border and where I stayed with the string! I made a wonderful experience tonight with that tile!
