Humpf! Ok, this is the Zentangle version of a “bad hair day”. It was fun to do because I didn‘t think about how any of it was going together. But when I was all done and looked at it at arm‘s length, I could see that it was a mish-mash of tangles that didn‘t go together all that well.

It‘s time for wind, and leaves, frost and flurries. But that depends on where you live. In the desert, cooler weather often brings new growth on plants and sometimes even fall blossoms, now that the sun isn‘t baking everything to a crisp. I used tangles that seemed to suit the time of year: Gust for the winds that change direction here in the fall, Bucky reminds me of frost on the windows, Static is the fall storms that bring us a bit of rain, Frondous for the plants that perk up in the cooler weather, and Fife and Well for their spikes and flower-like designs.

Simplicity. Sometimes I just like simple, bold designs. This tile is a good example. I wanted to play with a few tangles and some deep shadowing. I think the effect would have been lost in a more complicated drawing. Zentangle drawing done with Micron pen on Strathmore Vellum Bristol. Tangles: Appearance Frondous Magma Trigue Vega
