(Or, Salvage operations 2)
Doing a wee bit of organizing the other day I came across some old tiles. These were mainly from my early Zentangle days, before I'd grasped the concept of the pencil string. Interesting in their own way, many of them seemed a bit empty. I decided to re-work them and see what would happen. Here are four old tiles, Mach One and Mach Two.
|EGG. Tangles in mach 2: Florz, Hurly Burly, Msst, Munchin, Opus, Rick's Paradox, Tidings, Tripoli|
|NEW MOON. Tangles in mach 2: Ogen, Papyrus, Seljuk, Skaylz, |
not exactly Hibred, dots and some nameless patterns.
|Mach 1 was a little too reminiscent of boobs. (You probably didn't see that at all, did you?)|
Tangles in mach 2: Caviar, Florz, Hibred, Skaylz, Shattuck, Tripoli and dots and triangles
|DAWN. Tangles in mach 2: Betweed, Coaster, Crescent Moon, Rick's Paradox, Tipple|
In every case these were originally borderless. I drew a pencil border and filled in empty spaces. Here is one that I really like, but unfortunately I didn't scan the original tile. Based on adding a border and filling in, perhaps you can get an idea of what was there before.
|FAIRY GARDEN (a few weeks too late!) |
Tangles: Florz, Flux, Munchin, Papyrus, Skaylz
Check back through your old tiles and pull out a few less-than-favorites. See what magic you can work!
