Tekenen op 3Z tiles doe ik heel graag.  Daarom koos ik opnieuw om een compositie te maken op zo’n driehoekje. Het prachtige Noom van Maria staat centraal. Daar omheen koos ik voor Aura Leah en Spoolies. Dit laatste patroon tekende ik zowel met pen als met potlood en kleurde de tile achteraf lichtjes bij met grijs, groen en paars.

I’m fond of these 3Z tiles and therefore I have chosen again to use one. The beautiful Noom is drawn in the middle, surrounded by Aura Leah and Spoolies. I have drawn Spoolies with a black pen but also some with only a pencil. I have given my tile a final touch with grey, green and purple colourspenils.

    Once again you are showing such a beautiful, well-balanced and inspiring composition! I also enjoyed reading your Family Tree story on Zentangle’s homepage and thus getting to know you and your zentangle story a little better.

    Beautifully drawn Noom and nice combination of tangles. Aura Leah looks wonderful with Noom. I have to look up Spoolies – a new one for me. Quite lovely!

    De Tangle “noom” doet me denken aan de “loombandjes” die de kinderen een tijdje terug maakten. Ken je zeker? Mooie compositie . Vloeit in elkaar. Bij mij is het nog met ‘horten en stoten ‘ en toch ben ik telkens best tevreden. Ik kijk met spanning uit naar je blogpost!! Ik laat dit telkens aan anderen zien: gedeelde vreugd is dubbele vreugd ?

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Inderdaad Maddy, daar lijkt deze tangle een beetje op. Noom is niet zo moeilijk, zeker niet als je de eerste stap juist tekent, dan is de rest heel logisch. Altijd mooi is beginnen met een soort “band” zoals nu met Noom en daarrond dan te tangelen. Als je dan minstens 2 patronen tekent zit je direct in verschillende lagen en dat geeft altijd een beetje 3D effect.
      Heb je al naar de laatste blogpost gekeken op de originele site van Zentangle.com? Daar staan 3 leuke dames op vind ik.
      Het is heel druk op mijn website, er komen veel e-mails en inschrijvingen voor de newsletter binnen. Het maakt me heel blij.

    That is so lovely. I’m confused about the difference between spoolies and sandswirl though lol. Love the touches of purple.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      You are right Sue, but there is a little difference and I like them both. Thank you for your nice comment.

    I love the way the Noom extends beyond the frame and your use of just a little subtle colour is very effective.

    I love your tile and especially the colors 🙂

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Gudrun, Noom is an easy and wonderful pattern. You have made a very nice composition with beautiful drawn tangles, especially your Cubine looks fantastic. Thank you for using L’Eaura too.

    Now I HAVE to try noom. When I saw it in Rick and Maria’s newsletter, once again I felt overwhelmed. Still do. But having seen yours, well the whole tile, composition and colors, it tickled in my fingers. Awesome tile, Ria.
    Newsletter: just to let you know that I signed up with your newsletter ages ago, but thus far only received one, from Feb 11, African fabric as a source of inspiration. I signed up twice again since, but message pops up, email already in listing. Was Feb 11 the last post you sent out? Or is it because that seems to have been the last post under cat Blog En? Sorry for the headache.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Noom is an easy but beautiful pattern. I’m 100% sure that you are gonna make fantastic tiles with this tangle. Thank you for your nice compliment.
      So sorry that you have missed some newsletters. It can be possible that some of them disappear in the SPAM? After African Fabric I have posted another one with my new tangles Horti and Nouvart. You can read this post on my website. I always write in Dutch and in English. This evening, I’m gonna post another one: how I make tiles with watercolors. You are registrated well, so normal there will be no problems. When you don’t receive an email, please contact me again. Kind regards.

      Dank je wel Annemarie voor het lieve compliment.
      Voor mij was het ook een verrassing om te mogen verschijnen in de “family tree”. Ik ben er heel blij om.

    I love your 3Z! Congratulations on being the star of Zentangle HQ’s Family Tree blog post. I was so happy to get to know you a little more?

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Michele.
      It is very kind of you to mention my profile on the family tree. Me too am honoured and it was a real surprise to be there.

    I love the hint of color to connect it all.

    I love it! Your lines are so fine and precise. This looks like a little wrist bracelet in a bouquet! Wonderful

    Very Pretty! The colors are just enough! Love this!

    This is so pretty, Ria. I think the aura you added on Noom looks very nice. I have looked at Noom more of as a metallic chain, but you have softened it so that it looks like a pretty silk cord. Lovely. PS: Thanks for the advice you left on my blog post.

    I have those 3Z tiles and never think to grab one! I love how you did a distinct border on the tile and then let the Noom escape. Well done!

    I love the way the Noom keeps flowing off the paper, like it’s on a trip and just passing by!

    Heel mooi! Noom, de combinatie met de andere patronen, de compositie en de kleuren: alles dus 🙂
