Today's Class "Beyond Basic Zentangle®" takes you from let's say "Kindergarten" beginner basic ... to more complex patterns, string theory, embellishments, tango's (two tangles together) and more. This is a must have class to start you thinking on your own how/which strings & tangles to put together. We used an apprentice tile (4.5 x 4.5) just to give us more room to tangle on.
If you haven't tried all the different tiles Zentangle has to offer: original (3.5 x 3.5), apprentice (4.5 x 4.5), Bijou (2 x 2), black, tan, Zendala (in black and white), and Opus (10 x 10). Try them all. Get started and tangle.
There is a Facebook page called "Ornation Creation" by Ben Kwok, that has amazing traceable art outlines perfect to put tangles in... (all you do is ask to join the Facebook page). This art was the one I shared with the group today. Their homework was to apply some of the patterns they were shown today after learning how to trace the design.
Being a hairdresser by trade... I used a color wheel and applied some tangles for a quick reference guide to build your first tangles on.
