Stepped Sand Swirl: An HK Tangler Tangleation

Stepped Sand Swirl:
An HK Tangler Tangleation

The very first non Zentangle Headquarters tangle that I learned was Sand Swirl, by Kerry Huen. I love it for its simplicity and the tight auras. Lots and lots of Zen drawing sandswirl.  Kerry's original stepout  has the tangler drawing one compete element before...

A Mashup of Ziraffe and Tamisolo

About three months ago,  Chris Titus at Square One Purely Zentangle featured a new tangle called Ziraffe, by Carla Jooren, CZT  I fell in love with it in its own right, and did a couple of tiles that got me really addicted to this tangle. As I drew it, what caught my...

Tennae:
A Tangelation of Sedgling

I love auras!   One day not long ago I was playing around with the fun Stepped Sand Swirl tangleation that I enjoy so much and Tennae just sort of happened. After I sent Tennae out to the world, I found out that Tennae is very similar to (a yet unpublished to the...
