In this week's Zentangle Apprentice class I'm showing the students Paradox and Mooka. I remember learning Mooka from Shelly Beauchamp CZT. I couldn't get this one on my own and needed a teacher to guide me. Now it feels so natural for my pen to flow into those shapes. And with Paradox, I'm still amazed at the wonderful patterns that emerge from such a simple technique.
Other happenings in the world of Miss L
- still waiting for our bathroom renovations to start
- feeling the results of having a personal trainer. Nick pushes me hard which spurs me onto to push myself even harder. I loved feeling smashed at the end of a circuit session.
- Autumn has arrived. Cold nights and cool days already.
- School holidays are nearly here, which means I've been at my new school for one term. Very happy at my new place - the students, the staff, even the built environment are all good.
Diva Challenge - #310 - Frunky
This is a new tangle for me. I had fun playing around with it this morning. I suspect this one will creep into my work without deliberate thought as it combines elements of other tangles I already use.
My first tile is my disaster tile which I didn't finish. The tile got too crowded, my take-offs and landings were bad and my pen was running out and becoming scratchy.
Here's a revised version. Simpler, cleaner and with a new pen.
Couldn't resist doing another tile.

Tangles include Natti, Narwal and 'Nzeppel. It's been a while since I last tried to draw Narwal. I'm happy with what I drew today. It's worth revisiting tangles from the past because, with increased experience and skill, you might be better at drawing them now.
