Since I want to keep learning new tangles and keep drawing and relaxing with Zentangle, I decided to try to participate in the Diva's weekly challenges. You can find her blog here (or click on the Zentangle Challenge button on the right side of my blog).
This week's tangle is called Jailed Johnny and it was created by Sadelle Wiltshire. You can see the instructions here if you want to try it yourself.
This is my entry (you can see the tangle in the center and around the top left corner):
Every time I learn a new tangle I write down the stepouts and keep them together so I don't have to search for them again. It is a way to practice a tangle and also a reference anytime I want to use it and forget exactly how it is done.
What I also like is the display of tangles I have on my cork board. When I draw a blank on what pattern to use because I want a certain value or shape, I look at my display and choose. Each little square has the name and creator in the back so I can refer back to the stepouts if I need to. I'm sure this collection will grow, but not my space, so I will have to switch them on and off as I start using them more and more.
