Designing with Florz

I tested out two Letter F tangles a few days ago, to see which one I liked best.  And I picked Florz.  It reminds me of a spider's web!  I was actually surprised to see how well it looked wherever I drew it!  It's one of the original zentangle design, created by Maria and Rick.  There aren't instructions for you to follow, but it's easy; just draw either curved or straight lines, then add the little triangles where the lines intersect. 



I decided to draw a Florz pattern onto the cover of my 2011 Diary Project calendar.  Look familiar?  I've been adding tangles all over it.  These calendars arrived with plain cardboard covers, so owners could draw on them.  I'm sure having fun with mine!  If you don't know about the 2011 Diary Project: artists were able to chose one day in the year and make a design to decorate that day.  The calendar was published in three languages, and shipped all over the world.


Here's a post about it from last year, when everyone was getting ready.  Maybe you took part?  If so, what day did you choose?  I'd like to find it!  I picked my birthday, January 18th.


Don't miss AlphabeThursday!  Go by Ms. Jenny's classroom blog, and see what other words begin with the Letter F.

I am terrible with lines; I will have to practice this pattern and see if it can disguise my wobbles!

What a fun and fantastic design. I am going to attempt a project like this with my Grands this week. I try to plan ahead so it's not total chaos when they get here.

I'm hoping the youngest one can handle this. I know the middle one will adore this kind of free-form art.

Thanks for sharing your talents!

A+
