It had already been a very cloudy and slightly rainy 2 days here which is making photographing my early Inktober entries a bit of a challenge. That is likely to remain as my first nor’easter as an east coaster has arrived and regardless of what hurricane Joaquin decides to do, we are likely to feel the effects.
Having not tangled or drawn much recently I decided to go back to the basics for my first #inktober drawing. I used my Doodle Organizer app to randomly choose my first few patterns. That frees me up from decision making but ensured I was at least somewhat familiar with the patterns. Once I had a few patterns in place I continued on my own.
This was actually one of my first tiles where I defiated from my string. I’m wishing now that I had photographed the string. Oh well!
It isn’t my favorite tile, but not too bad for being rusty and letting a lot depend upon chance!
Between work and moving I can’t knit right now so I tangled during my SnB night on Monday. I ended up doing the this week’s Diva Challenge to create a tile inspired by Beads of Courage which you can read about on the Diva’s blog post. I thought what goes with beads more than ribbon? Add in that in the Weekly Zentangle Tangle Video Facebook Group is focusing on Knase which immediately grabbed me as a nice pattern for a ribbon and so I combined the two.
As you can see, my spiral turned into a monotangle. I started off with BB and ended up continuing. I waffled for a bit, as I originally thought I’d end up doing some sort of background pattern like nekton or keeko. Then I realized I was filling up too much with the BB so then thought about adding a sprinkle of tipple. But I think it is done as a monotangle.
