It's one of the first things I see every morning. It attracts my eye when we are out and about. It's primitive, yet elegant. It was one of our first tangles and has stood the test of time, never going out of style.
It's florz, one of the tangles we teach on our DVD in our Zentangle Kit.
Sometimes it's good to get back in touch with basic tangles, And once you've got in touch; it's also fun to explore variations of that tangle.
Let's revisit florz and explore some variations. Take this as an opportunity to challenge yourself in your daily (right? :-) Zentangle practice.
In your first effort, focus in on that original tangle, making those dark shapes into a really elegant, beautiful, dramatic image.
What other variations can you imagine?
So, when someone asks how you are, say, "I'm just 'flord' today!". . . and show them why!
