Incredibly Exciting New Challenge!!
Anya has created the third Zentangle challenge in German (don’t worry – she gives an English translation too 🙂 ) Anya has now translated her title into English and has a quick link right under the title to the English. English is on the bottom half of the post.
I hope Anya doesn’t mind that I have quoted her extensively!!! I think this is a fabulous challenge and I want to share enough so you can see this is very doable and will be great fun to join in. To make it VERY clear – below is a very long quote from Anya – these are not my own words at all.
Pattern Mixer MergingÂ Cadent Buttercup Challenge
Each month the Anya puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. February 2015 is the third challenge from Anya and Pattern Mixer!! This month is Pattern Mixer Challenge #3. So here is what Anya says this month “Welcome to another Pattern Mixer! I was thrilled with the results that continue to be posted for last monthâ€™s challenge. Please keep it coming! There is no need to hurry, either: You have a whole month to complete your tile.”
How do I mix the patterns?
Generally speaking, there are three basic ways of combining patterns and you should choose at least one of them for your tile.
Tangle in a tangle: You draw your first pattern a bit larger than you normally would and fill the empty spaces in your pattern with another tangle. Example
Combining elements: You take elements from one pattern and integrate them into the other tangle, thus creating a new pattern. Example
Merging: You make smooth transitions from one tangle pattern to the next, sort of letting one pattern melt into the next one. Like this.
Todayâ€™s patterns are:
So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) merging and tangling within a tangle usingÂ Cadent and Buttercup done by me.
Merging and Tangling in a Tangle Challenge
I was hesitant about this challenge because grids and I are not the best friends.Â I can do Cadent after I get the rhythm down again (about as I finish it in a tile).Â Buttercup is very grided so I did the best I could.Â Then whew!!Â I let each be free to merge into the other 🙂 Just so you know, I chose Option 3 that Anya gave us – Merging. But then as I went along I realized it would be more fun to also includeÂ Tangle in a Tangle – so I did Option 1 also – a tiny bit. I hope you like it!!
Entries to Pattern Mixer
Anna has created a Pinterest board with all the Pattern Mixer entries included.Â Here is the Muster Mixer board.Â Some of the entries blow me away and inspire me so much!!
Zentangle Enticed Me
Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I am able to be more in the flow again – whew! I love this challenge – Anya is so very creative!!! So above is my Pattern Mixer Merging and Tangling in a TangleÂ Cadent Buttercup Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!
Which Tangle is Which?
A variation of Cadent starts in the bottom left and then moves rightward into another variation.Â Buttercup is in a grid is at the top right. Then they each break free and play around.Â So Cadent Buttercup play together 🙂 There you have it!! 🙂
I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (My studio always gets filled up when there are projects in the house that need a place to dump a bunch of stuff for awhile!! LOL!!) Thank you for stopping by!! I LOVE comments!!Â Thank you!!! ~ Diane Clancy
