More Help with Pea~Knuckle

OK, I made another Zendala using Pea~Knuckle. Do you like my border?  I made a mistake and started Pea~Knuckle on one of the spaces I wanted blank, so I just tangled a few auras around them.

I wanted to leave some white space, but all of that pristine paper is begging to be tangled.  So, what do you think, is it done?

As promised, here is a video I made showing how I draw pea~knuckle.
It's 11 minutes long, but I couldn't figure out where to cut it short.  Sorry about that.  I think you can tell why my Zentangle 101 classes run close to 3 hours!

It's my first how-to video, so please be gentle with me.  I have a lot to learn about video-editing.  And, for some reason, I kept saying "perpendicular" when I meant "parallel" so beware of that.

Despite that, I hope this helps someone.

  1. What a great job on Pea-Knuckle. I'm having trouble keeping my Pea-Knuckle lined up so I'm looking forward to viewing your video.

    1. I have found that you don't really have to keep them lined up. Look at the top "row" of the bottom section above. They certainly didn't line up very well, but that's part of its charm.

    1. Spinning top, I like that. I kept thinking of the danger: radiation symbol :-)

  4. Thank you so much for all your help! Your video is great. I am definitely a visual learner,a couple of things I didn't really "get" in the tips became very clear with the video. I love the auras around the s's in your border, too.

    1. You're welcome. I wasn't sure the tips were clear enough, but I had a VERY impatient child waiting for me... Glad the video helped.

  6. I think it is stunning the way it is. If you add anything I would still leave lots of white space. I think it is done.

  8. It's absolutely beautiful just as it is. I found if I pencil in rows of S's vertically, making sure the tops
    touch the bottoms of the one above it is much easier to
    lay out. I use a ruler to tick off even space between
    the first row of S's horizontally. This took me a week
    of experimenting, trying to get the patter correct. After I had the S's laid out like I wanted them, then the rest
    was easy for me. Now to watch your video and learn some
    easier tips!
