We have a great St. Patrick's Day tangle for you and lots of wonderful news.
|New Tangle: Sh-rock|
One of our CZTs, Diane LaChance in New Hampshire, sent us a great tangle just in time for St. Patrick's Day. Here are her words:
"I have a tangle moment to share. When I started this particular tile, it was just to get the steps to the tangle out to you in some fashion that wasn't totally embarrassing. I did relax quite a bit and enjoy myself, but I thought the tile was only just so-so when it was done. I was drawing the tangle with "shrock" in the lower right hand corner. I proceeded to scan the tile in the same orientation, and compiled the pdf file with the same orientation.
"A while later, I was sitting at my computer and the tile was laying there. I picked it up, still thinking "ah, just so-so", AND THEN I started rotating the tile to "appreciate it" and then BAM, an Emerill moment - all of a sudden it was beautiful! My heart skipped two beats! All of a sudden I was looking at a cone shaped basket, full of lucky shamrocks. This never would have been the same if I had "tried" to draw a basket full of shamrocks. And I was truly "Lucky" (or as I may start calling myself "Shrocky") when I realized I hadn't attached the pdf to your email. I reoriented the tiles and made a new pdf - the one you received.
"Zentangle is truly beautiful!"
Here's her tile:
There are so many cool Zentangle "moments" wrapped up in this tangle's story:
It's just two elements, an "X" and an "aura" around it.
- Anytime there's an overlap, you draw behind what's already there.
- She didn't appreciate how beautiful it was until she turned it and viewed it from another perspective.
[Hmm, what else in our life might we view with a new and different perspective?]
- It's easy and fun to do.
- "Sh-rock" is a great name!

Thank you Diane!
