Zentangles – New Tangle ‘Angeleafe’

Somewhere in January this year, I am not really sure when [ ..chalk the bad memory up to age or this really bad flu I can’t seem to rid myself of! In fact, January has been one big haze, as I spent a lot of it in bed. ], I started drawing repetitive “S” strokes whilst at various talks and functions.

At some point, these started evolving into a leaf of sorts, and when they got addictive to draw, I decided to share them with my CZT chum Stephanie Jennifer over at Everything is Art. It was she who encouraged me to quickly put up these step outs 🙂

This is my third tangle, and a very different feel, compared to Cadenza and Cabbit.

Here are some photos of how I’ve incorporated this new tangle in my tiles. [ Clicking on the images will take you to Flickr. ]

I’ve even used it on my custom notepaper and envelopes… [ can you spot it? ]

This lovely loot is going out for the CZT-only Travelling Tangles Project 🙂

I love how organic this tangle feels, and I feel like it has a life of it’s own, much like a seedling coming into Spring!

Since this is an opportune ode to Spring, I decided to google up plants 😛 I eventually picked this name because I think it has the potential to look like [ not identical to ] the leaves of the Angel Wing Begonia plant, if you tangle both sides asymmetrically.

There are many ways to adjust this tangle to fit any space and shape, just explore the width and lengths of each “S” stroke, including the main one; ie. Step 1.

Here are the step-outs! Enjoy 🙂
