'Ptrish40' (AKA Patty of the "Zentangle Inspired Art" Yahoo group) posted a challenge involving Venn diagrams and intersecting/combining tangles. She dubbed it "VennTangles". Sounds scientificky, no?
Once I'd grasped the concept of the pencil string (last spring at the CZT seminar), I've loved the way tangle patterns morph into other patterns. This can be particularly cool when the tangles share structural elements. Oops, getting sciency there. Anyway, I decided to see what morphing might take place with this Venn idea for combining patterns.
I did the first one on a Zentangle tile. I tried to make it easy on myself by choosing tangles all based on a grid: Cubine, Dex, and Florez (by Andrea Schuman).
Using only two circles was going rather well so I decided to take another shot at three circles. But that center really was too small. I used a Zentangle tile again, but this time I used a larger circle template and ran them all off the edge. I chose some simple and fairly basic tangles: Hollibaugh, N'zeppel, and Tipple. It's quite a development from my first attempt!
What a marvelous idea! I've discovered a whole new way for tangles to work together! Thanks Patty/ptrish!!! Must. Do. More...
