Tangle Time: Abukas

Picking today’s date in the #IntoberTangles2020 list by CZT Stephanie Jennifer, we find ourselves looking at Abukas by CZT CharKat. This is a new tangle for me, and it was fun to learn and share!!

Before we dug in, we took a look at CZT CharKat’s post where she shared her step outs, the story behind the tangle and some beautiful work using it. One thing that struck me in CharKat’s work, was the center of the pattern. In her step out, she leaves it empty, but as you see in her work, it can be filled however you like. I decided to deconstruct one of the centers and create step outs for it. You can see that here. OH! and the tangle I used around the center is called WUD (click for the step out).

One of the extra fun things about Zentangle® is the different results with the same instruction. It’s a beautiful testimony to how we are all unique and create so much beauty when we embrace our uniqueness and share it.

Here are some close up shots from those who emailed me their work. If you were on one of the calls, or if you couldn’t make it and want to give this a shot, I would LOVE to share what you have done – Pop me an email (heather@tangleaddicts.com) with it and I will add it to this gallery! Click on any picture to enlarge.

Thanks to everyone that joined in on the fun!!! I will add pictures as I receive them, check back by clicking the title of the blog so you see it from the site. Also, for those that have supported these free classes directly or by purchasing Zentangle products from my store, THANK YOU!

Heather Hartwick Gladden, CZT
