Zentangles – Diva Challenge 258 & New Tangle ‘Dealys’

Dealys

This is my fourth tangle, after AngeleafeCadenza and Cabbit.

Like ‘Angeleafe’ before this, I had been using Dealys long before I thought to publish it. It has shown up in my work from even six months ago. From its early days, it appeared very similar visually to Carla du Preez’s Auraleah, so I didn’t think much of it.

As it was already so much a part of my tangles, step-outs for Dealys only ‘resurfaced’ as a priority as I began working on black tile lesson plans. I’d wanted to use something that can be drawn in multiple ways, and I tweaked it so that the step-outs would be as distinctive from Auraleah as possible. As a result, Dealys may be tangled in several ways to achieve different looks.

Dealys is named because of the considerable ‘Delays’ in putting up the step-outs and also after one of my cats, Dyllis. [ Basically, one day, my stepmom happened to ask why I haven’t named any tangles after my cats……. I didn’t have any clue. So……. here we are. ]

Dealys is tangled in one continuous, curvy stroke, meeting at specific points. [ Clicking on the images will take you to Flickr. ]

Diva Challenge Week 258 – UMT Rautyflex

After missing out on ten challenges, I checked in to the diva’s blog today and discovered it was a UMT challenge, featuring Kathrin Bendel CZT’s Rautyflex.

This was definitely a challenge, indeed. I haven’t been this confused by a tangle in quite some time 😛

I am not sure I can draw this tangle again without looking at the step-outs at every few seconds. Anyway, this was really fun to do…

  1. I can’t wait to try Dealys. I need more organic tangles in my repertoire. I am impressed by what you did with this week’s difficult challenge. Very original (and brave).

  2. I like the tangle. I’ll definitely give it a try, maybe when I get to the “Dæg” rune in my personal challenge I’m doing right now.
    I agree with you about Rautyflex — I’m not sure I totally “get” that one. Your tile looks good with it, and I like the filler patterns you’ve used in the chevrons.

    • Wow, what is a “Dæg” rune? Thank you for liking the new tangle 🙂
      Yes, I like what people have done with Rautyflex, but I can’t seem to remember the steps at all.. I have to keep referring back ^_^

      • I’ve been working on doing tangles around the Anglo-Saxon Runic alphabet, with the shape as the string and trying to use tangles starting with the same letter. “Daeg” is the equivalent of “D”
