I frequently end up with bits of paper cut from the edges of larger pieces. Sometimes I cut them down to zentangle tile size or ATC size, or if they're very skinny I make bookmarks.
When I was trying Mooka the other day, I kept filling the negative spaces, but wanted to fill the Mooka frondlets with tangles. I needed to refresh my memory with tangles that go on lines or fill long, thin bands of space. Mooka also got me wanting to do curvy, organic, botanical, flowing things. I thought about Justine Ashbee's gorgeous linear art and the patterns Joanna Coke sometimes puts over her paintings and some of Jane Monk's floral designs (note the border here, top right and bottom right corner). Maybe I need a first name that begins with 'J'!
I pulled out a few bookmarks to experiment on. Three of them had two-pencil strings. Mooka found its way into three of them! Here are the results.
I think it's cool how this photo looks almost like a zentangle inspired art 'ensemble' even though each strip was pencil-strung individually.
