I enjoyed this original challenge with a ( bit hidden) J as string. I used a grey tile and glued it on a blue background. The tangles I have chosen are Jetties, Joki, Verve and Ovolution. I really can’t miss my white gellypen to finish the job!

Ik heb met plezier deze leuke challenge getekend met een verborgen J als string. De grijze tile werd op een blauwe achtergrond geplakt en als tangles koos ik voor Jetties, Joki, Verve en Ovolution. Een witte gelpen is voor mij onmisbaar voor de “final touch!”

    Je hebt de J goed verstopt in deze mooie tile 🙂 Joki en Verve vormen een hele mooi combinatie!

      Ja dat klopt Ilse, ik heb geprobeerd de string te volgen maar ben toch een beetje afgeweken om een betere compositie te verkrijgen. Dank je wel voor je reactie.

      Thanks Joey, those tangles were the first that came in my mind for using a J a V and a O, all tangles I like and I enjoyed this challenge very much!

    Lovely tile Ria! I love the way the grey tone paper makes the art stand off the page;-)

    Hey Ria, ready for some marble games? Count me in.
    An absolutely gorgeous tile, Ria, with well chosen tangles and a cleverly hidden string. And I like the idea of gluing 2 tiles on top of each other to get a part of the string. Can still learn a lot from a very clever Zentangle pro. Love it!!!!

      Thanks Susie. I couldn’t choose between Jetties and Joki, both lovely patterns and Verve is also always nice. My tile was finished and I noticed I had forgotten the O, so a quick look on the patterns and there I saw Ovolution, a nice solution to put in the corner. I could coloring the border or use Photoshop but for me it was easier, just to cut out the smaller square and than glue on a blue background. I’m glad you like the result.Wisch you success with yours!

        Just finished mine today and I stole one of your chosen tangles, Joki. You know, I never dared to try Verve, not even just as a sketch. I wouldn’t trust myself with the lines. But I have to say, your ‘afterthought’ Ovolution looks anything but an afterthought. It sits there like you had placed it first.

          Joki is a wonderfull tangle and starts with a J, I’m glad you also chose this pattern, I love it but I love also Verve, just a bit exercising and it will be allright. I really didn’t know Ovolution before this challenge but I like it too, so you see: with every challenge you’ll learn a bit more! Thanks for the comment. I’m gonna take a look on yours, right now!
