Tangle Time: Fife

Fife is such a neat tangle and we had great fun with it on Jan 7, 2021 – Our first full Tangle Time of the new year. This starts as a grid of dots that can be looked at 2 ways – a straight grid where you see squares, but then also if you turn your tile or paper 45 degrees, it looks offset. Molly, from Zentangle®, Inc, talks about it in THIS newsletter edition where Fife was introduced. This is essentially 2 tangles in one step-out. If you stop at step 4 in my step out, you get more of the flower look. Click here for more pictures from the Zentangle® blog.

Tangles with minimal numbers of strokes are great and easy to remember! This one starts with a dot grid and is made up of curved lines connecting the dots, creating seeds. I find doing one side of the seed, then flipping my tile/paper and doing the other side makes them more consistent because my curved lines are all being drawn in the same direction.

I love that while we are all looking at the same step-outs (instructions) everyone adds in their own style and creativeness. We look at each other’s work for extra inspiration and ideas.
