The first thing I did was get out my sketchbook and start trying to come up with cool tangleations. Usually, this isn't something I can force, but I was in the "Zen Zone" today and came up with a dozen before I started getting too silly.
|My regular Crescent Moon plus a few brighter ones.|
|Zebra moon and Racing stripes are my favorites.|
|Getting carried away. Time to quit and get to the challenge.|
I knew I wanted to try a monotangle Zendala. (I seem to have fallen into a Zendala hole and can't tangle my way out of it!)
Even with all of my samples, this was a challenge. I started at the center with my regular Crescent Moon and worked outwards, using "bright moon" then a "purky moon variation" and then a "racing stripes" variation. Doesn't it look like a whole lot more?
With every different tangle, the whole mood of the piece changed. It was a very interesting experience. I wish I had taken pictures at every step so you could see the whole evolution. I only have the "finished" project
