Cornered. She opened the door. “It looks like there is some kind of strange plant growing out of the corner of a psychedelic room here. Perhaps that is a portal on the far wall? See how everything seems to be leaning toward it? We will have to explore. Everyone stay in comm range.” She stepped out onto the floor and instantly disappeared.

Flutter. To me, the two sections with the Queen‘s Crown in them remind me of butterfly wings. I think of them every time I see it. Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Bales Chard Echoism Jonqal Pinwheels Queen‘s Crown Vega

Echoes. I think the multiple echoes that tie up this tile are the tangle and the circular repetitions. The shapes of the Marasu and the Cogwheel echo each other. Putting the Fescu on either side of the center creates balance. Finally having the top and bottom Pinwheels echo provide a nice contrast to the more organic designs.

Joy. This Zentangle makes me happy every time I see it. I like the balance, and many of the tangles are on my list of favorites. Zentangle drawn on official Zentangle tile using a black Micron pen. Tangles: Beedz Bumper Cadent Emingle Fescu Flora Huggins Marasu Nzeppel Pinwheels Sh-Rock

Bridging the gap. Sometimes, having a design that goes from edge to edge helps the eye travel through the image. Here it works and although it is bold, it doesn‘t overwhelm the design. I messed up while drawing Pinwheels so I am calling this a variation of Pinwheels because it’s still interesting. Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black Micron pen.
