Stripes 2

Stripes! I love it. Another challenge from the String Theory series, Laura's challenge this week is to use Stripes as our string. It's called Stripes 2 because this one has been done before, back in May 2011.

So I started by drawing a few diagonal stripes and realised again that it was symmetrical (the old Mathematician brain at work!), so I chose to fill it symmetrically too.
Stripes 2
Tangles: Shattuck (variation), Nzeppel, Knase, Florz
 I started from the centre and worked my way out and when I got to the corners, I wasn't sure what to do. Then I remembered the wonderful post I had read earlier in the day, from Maria over at the Zentangle Blog - Get Flord! - so Florz it was...


And I thought I'd show you my old version too. I drew this earlier this year, and posted it in September, as my response to the original stripes challenge. I'm slowly working my way through the challenges. The photo's not great, and you can see my tangling has come a long way too!!!

Stripes 1 - Challenge 24

An just in case you've missed some of my recent Zentangles, here's a quick round-up - three of which are old Diva challenges (I'm playing catch-up!):

Clockwise from top left: OoF; Mi2; Brayd; Letters

Happy tangling...

  3. Wow, the first is such a neatly done one. And isn't it fun to see improvement when you look at older works???!!! At the same time, those oldies look really good.
