Inspired by Molossus' incredible "Bleedthru- manade" Zentangle®-Inspired Art (ZIA), I laid down some color with Letraset Promarkers in my Rhodia No.16 pad in the shape that continues to recur in my strings, then tangled! I love the vibrancy of these saturated colors.
This is the "bleedthru" backside of Creative Growth. I decided to let more of the color show on this side to give it a different feel. Some color shapes I treated as strings, some I ignored.
My tangle "Kilroy" forms the border at the lower edge. The steps for Kilroy and two of my other tangles are shown below....
"Kilroy" was inspired by the famous WWII graffiti image (sans fingers). "Bark" was inspired by the Dogwood blossom:
If you 'adopt' any of these tangles, I'd love to see how you use them. Enjoy!
