"Art Every Day" Month - #1: Nipa

November is Art Every Day Month brought to us by Creative Every Day. Not to be confused with 30 Days of Creativity which happens in June. Fortunately they're six months apart!

I recently came up with a system that works for me to keep track of all the tangles I've discovered and like and want to use again. It's getting out of hand and I have over 250 patterns, most of which I usually forget about and resort to my tried and true favorites. This month I will try to be arty by doing a Zentangle tile using AT LEAST one fairly new and little used tangle pattern.

Here's my first installment, focusing on Zentangle's "Nipa". I tried it with both the wavy background and a zigzag background. I also got back to Coaster, and Hurakán, which I haven't used in a while.

Tangles: Black Pearls, Coaster, Florz, Hurakán, Knightsbridge, Nipa

And don't forget! There are two weeks left to get a tile to me if you want to enter the DRAW for artwork celebrating my first year as a blogger.


  1. As always, I love your style - I've also joined the AEDM project. Your plan to try less used tangles is a great one - I also have lots saved up that I never/rarely use so this idea might work for me too! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Dear Margaret, you have me hooked!! Whilst I usually tangle every night while I watch tv, I will join you in your challenge, to use a tangle or two not used for ages. Thanks for that. I would be interested too in how you are storing your tangles.Thanks for the inspiration.
