G-X-N Challenge: Grafistka, Xplode, Nerfy, Fern
Each week Carolien and I put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of our idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #80: Tangle with G-X-N. So here is what we say this week “This week is Challenge #80, the Alphabet challenge of G-X-N. Use tangles starting with the letters G, X & N in your drawing. It’s your choice to only use patterns with these letters or to add some others as well. Happy Tangling!! We look forward to seeing what you come up with for your G, X & N.” Thus this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using tangles that start with the letters G, X & N.
Zentangle Enticed Me
Zentangle has become popular the last several years and so I have been intrigued and putting my attention to it. So above is my Challenge ZIA. I decided to make it black and white I am striving to be in the flow!! There is still one piece of repair work to be done – from the intense winter 2 years ago!! This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!!!
Which Tangle is Which?
Grafistka is the lattice across the upper left corner. Xplode is the explosion of flags in the upper right. Nerfy is the tendrils that are on the bottom. As opposed to Fern which are the 4 larger, heavier leaves, also along the bottom. Fern has polka dots if that is helpful to distinguish between Nerfy and Fern. Nerfy has little nubs along its stems. There you have it!!
