Around and around. I ended up with a lot of tangles that were basically circular this time. But with a bit of careful placement, I think I managed to make them all play nice with each other!

Echoes. Even though they aren‘t exact, I feel like the three center elements kind of echo each other. I like the effect they created all together. Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Fengle Nipa Kathy‘s Dilemma Opus Scena Snail Squill Vermal

Pockets. This tangle reminds me of a pocket with a spiral lolipop in it. I wanted to experiment with the various brown pens in my collection, to see how much contrast there was between the various tones.

Neuron was recently featured as the challenge tangle on a couple of Facebook groups. I didn‘t do this right away, because I wanted to think about how to use the tangle as a string, as I did here. I also wanted to experiment with a few red accents, and I thought the triangles that appear in this design were perfect. I felt the center needed something contrasting, so I chose Nzeppel.
