104 Diva + Voga

I love when someone gives me a string. It's like you get to play in someone else's house: they've done all the cleaning and prep and you just have to show up and play. Not that strings are a chore, of course, but some days that's the first point of entry into the process, and my lists and left brain haven't gotten the full message that they can now take a break, and my critical side starts poking at me. That's why I love using the Zentangle prestrung tiles. I can more easily bypass the pressure of starting something new and go right to the flow.
   This week the Diva gave us a string from Linda Farmer's Tanglepatterns.com. If you've not visited, go! It's great. This string is very sectioned, which makes me want to Puf it up. So I did. Here is a photo of the string with the sections dressed in 'pre-puffed' auras:












Here is the finished tile:

In all this playing, I think a tangle may have emerged. I hesitate to say that as there are so many new ones popping up, that surely this has been done. However, if not, I went ahead and named it and provided the step-outs. You can use a straight line (left) or a curvy line (right)  "V" shape. Remember when you 'puf', resist the urge to draw a line straight through the point. Move slowly to let the line dance from one point to the next.

This example is the curved version.

















Try it without the bars, connecting the "v" sections to each other:

  4. I love this pattern and it's exactly right for a drawing that's been sitting around waiting for inspiration so thanks for coming to the rescue. But I'd never heard the word 'puf' before (let alone found the tangle!! :-) Is it what Brits would spell with two fs as in puff pastry, I wondered? I hastened to the link and was enlightened!:-)I'm going to puf(f) around a bit now... A few other cooking terms might be in order. I immediately thought of whip and beat - better beat a hasty retreat here now, and crack an egg or two.
