Thursday – favorite day of this week
I have a lot of reasons for loving Thursday, including feeding my addiction to the USA network show “Burn Notice”. But this week it is my Zentangle® for the 7th that has me really excited. Out of the seven Zentangles I did for the CreateMixedMedia.com‘s “Week as Art”, today is my favorite. It contains some of my favorite tangles and a technique I saw used in a 1905 Japanese textile design. I used the technique with the tangle at the bottom which unfortunately I don’t know if it has an “official name”, either by Rick and Maria, the founders of Zentangle or by another Certified Zentangle Teacher. I refer to it as “origami” in my sketchbook. The technique floats individual parts of the tangle above the whole to create a layered look. Great fun!
