LDG Zentangle Challenge Entry

The Challenge set by Diane and myself 🙂

Diane & Carolien's Weekly Zentangle Challenge

Each week Diane & Carolien’s Weekly Zentangle Challenge puts out a challenge for folks to make their own representation of Diane & my idea. This week is Challenge #25, the Alphabet challenge of L-D-G. Use tangles starting with the letters L, D & G in your drawing. It’s your choice to only use patterns with these letters or to add some others as well. Happy Tangling!! We look forward to seeing what you come up with for your L, D & G. Next week are moving to F-I-N if you want to think ahead of time.

Out of the box

For the color I went a little bit out of the box for me. After coloring in the usual way I found it needed something more. So went for a little search on my harddrive and found this background. Really like how the colors have become almost neon colors on the dark background. Definitely not something I would do every time, but fun for a change.

Used LDG Tangles

Leaf pod on a line – I quite like the look of this tangle. It shows in the top left and bottom right. It’s very cute and delicate looking. I usually find it a bit difficult how to make sure the little swirls keep showing up and not fading away in another pattern that is next to it. I choose to ignore it for this drawing.

Dicso – Dicso (keep wanting to write disco!) are the leaf shapes in the bottom right.

Go 4th n multiply – I wasn’t sure about this pattern, but I actually quite like the look of it. Fun and bubbly and with a bit of shading there’s some real depth in there. (shown in the center of the drawing).

Fill it up

Then to fill up some space I used my favorite Fife and added some black little dots.
