"Tri-Shapes" Weekly Challenge #48

This challenge really could have taken me out of my comfort zone, but in the end, it became an adventure.  The string in this challenge is 3 basic shapes:  circle, square and rectangle.  We were also challenged to "tri" new patterns which took me on an adventure all through the web as I traveled from blog to blog looking for new patterns.  There are over 100 official Zentangle patterns, and thousands of unofficial ones, plus all the variations!  So much tangling fun in my future!!

In this tile, I used Fife, Flying Geese, DL Labryinth, Eke, Finery, Corn Rows, and Brace.   You'll also see Dragonair as well.  Not a new pattern -- Norma Burnell demonstrated it in Providence at CZT7, but such a cool pattern and definitely one of my favorites!

Also notice my "chop" -- it took a while to come up with it.  Since it's difficult to get right in smaller spaces, my plan over the Thanksgiving holiday is to design a stamp from polymer clay.


  1. Very nice work! You really tried a lot of new tangles and I see some I need to try too.

  2. Ooohh, love this Susan! Great combination of patterns.
