Well among the hundreds of images I saved from the thousands of tangles available on that website, I found this one:
NOTE: The image I’d found was actually from a website that was selling the kit, so it’s been removed. But you can find the kit here.
The idea really appealed to me. Being a gamer and all, I have a very large collection of dices (the term is actually “die” but I prefer “dices”). So I grabbed a dice, a pen and paper and I got to rolling.
This is what I ended up with:
I quite liked the randomness of it. So I’ve done a few more since then.
It’s not necessarily a new idea for Zentangle. If you were to buy the Zentangle Kit from the official Zentangle website…
… (this is on my wishlist, if anyone feels like treating me)…
… you’d find inside a legend with twenty different tangles on and an icosahedron (otherwise known as a twenty sided dice, or a D20).
The idea being, of course, to help you randomise the patterns that you use.
I do like this idea, but I have many many more than 20 patterns to choose from. I’m in the process of changing how I file them, but once I’ve sorted that and figured out exactly how many I have, I may construct a method that involves a D10 or 3, or something along those lines.
I’ll let you know when I come up with something.
