FUNLS - a new tangle

While attempting the 75th Zentangle weekly challenge - to use Cadent - my brain went off in other directions and instead presented a few lovely variations of Cadent. For another very cool variation of Cadent, see CZT Patty Meijer's blog here.

Some of the things my brain sprouted are so different that I think they warrant their own name. I'll be sharing them this week.

First up, FUNLS, which probably bears the most resemblance to Cadent. Say 'funnels'. I think we owe our non-English-first-language tangle buddies some explanations of the odd/oddly-spelled names we come up with for some tangles! A hint: frequently they are rather phonetic and don't use the frequently bizarre English spelling. :)

For shading, go to the base of the squiggly lines. Here's a tile with Funls:
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Funls, Groovy, Knase, LinQ, Tortuca

  2. I like this. It's a nice variation of cadent (which I invariably goof on). It's a challenge to work with those "mistakes."

    1. I'll be teaching at ArtWaves West in Leduc, just south of Edmonton, but because there are Certified Zentangle Teachers in Calgary and Canmore and elsewhere I don't want to tread on their toes.
