Tangled Thursday - Winter

Tangled Thursday is an occasional post on this blog. Heather at Books and Quilts is hosting these challenges in which we share our latest Zentangle inspired creations.

This week I challenged the other artists to use the word "Winter" as their inspiration. For awhile there I was thinking that I should have used the word "Spring" as we had several really nice days (above 0C). However, as predicted, today we are back in the deep freeze. Anyway, here's my version of a snowflake:
Tangles: Tipple, Zinger, Ionic, Worms, Inapod, Paradox, AAs

I thought I had a snowflake template to use, but no such luck.  Instead, I did a quick pencil outline of the spokes and went from there.  I'm kind of glad I didn't find a template because I'm rather pleased with how this turned out, even though you might not know it's a snowflake unless I told you.  The hardest part was finding suitable patterns to use. 

Be sure to check out the other "Winter" creations on Books and Quilts.   If you'd like to join us, please do so by linking your post to the Mr. Linky on Heather's post.

  2. What a pretty snowflake. You managed to get a lot of different tangles in there. Very creative. :-)

  3. Very cute! Some tangles I haven't seen before either. Well done! :D


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
