Movie Gran

I mean... Groovy man!

The Diva's Zentangle challenge this week is to use the tangle Groovy from Eden Hunt. This is  a beautiful, wavy pattern and I can't believe I didn't know about it before! In my square tile I combined it with another tangle I discovered this week, Rouche from Rose Brown, also lovely.
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Crescent Moon, Groovy, Rouche, elements of Tripoli
I wanted to use a round tile. I also wondered if the Rounding technique might give Groovy more of the groove-iness that Eden mentions in her explanation of the origin of the tangle. Rounding gives it quite a different look, and I don't think it really did what I hoped it might, but it's interesting nonetheless. This is almost a monotangle; the only thing non-Groovy is the hints of Finery in the center.

  4. Both are exquisite. I think I like the round tile the best, but it's a very close call.

  7. Oh wow, some really great variations here. I really like the ones that are filled in in every other stripe... A totally different vibe and somehow with more dimention. I agree about the madala... Those all look like distinct patterns to themselves! I also love how some of the patterns flow together in the top one. Great interpretations.

  14. I can't believe how you found all those ways to use groovy. Especially in the Zendela, the outer edge design is so complex to me, i can't even figure out how you did that. Really wonderful examples.

    1. Hi Gloria, like a lot of tangles, it's not as complicated as the result looks! I did the tangle Groovy, then just filled the stripes in each section with alternating black and white stripes. I left little highlights on the black stripes. (I love those highlights!) Give it a try. :)

  17. Wow, these are terrific! I 'specially love the zendala with the variations of groovy and the highlighting! The rounding and "elements" of finery are a great touch.
