This is another Zentangle Challenge. #36 is from yet another new challenge website I found. This Ticked to Tangle blog presents an It’s A String Thing challenge every week. You’re given a string (unsurprisingly) and all a limiter on the type of tangles you can use. The tangle this week was pretty cool, from a book by a lady who took photographs of things around the world and turned them into strings. This one was a photo of a paved driveway in Florida:
And the restriction was to use (if possible) tangles that started with Pe, in honor of the book’s author Sindy P. There are precisely five tangles that start with Pe. Pea-nuckle, Pendrills, Pepper, Peaks Border and Pegs. I have used NONE of them before.
I looked them up and managed to use Peaks Border quite easily, and found Pendrills not as difficult as I’d once thought. Then I decided that Pegs was too similar to Peaks Border for what I was starting to do with the string and Pea-nuckle looked far too fussy for such small boxes. So since I’d apparently started doing alternating rows, I paired Pepper up with Paradox (the blog does say you can use a favourite tangle that starts with P, so I’m not technically breaking any rules).
It was hard! The string was fine. I can tangle in any string. The restrictions make it harder, but it’s a fun type of hard. It’s a nice challenge. This was #30, so I’m gonna go rooting through the archives to find some more to do 🙂
