Tangle of the week - sugarcane

sugarcane zentangle

I love the look of sugarcane... it reminds me of bamboo.  Wonder if it's as prolific? 

When I saw there was a tangle called Sugarcane, I had to see what it was all about.   The Sugarcane zentangle is one of the original patterns created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.  They say, "Zentangle provides a fun and lighthearted way to relax and intentionally facilitate a shift in focus and perspective."  I like them because they are an easy and attractive way to practice my drawing skills.  You can read more about Rick and Maria at their website, Zentangle.

Want to learn how to draw the Sugarcane zentangle?  Hop over to the blog of CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher)  Suzanne McNeill.  

And what did other students of the AlphabeThursday class think about when asked what begins with the letter S?  Check out Ms. Jenny's "off on my tangent" blog.

Very cool tangle,Deb!
Sugar cane grew all over the place in Louisiana (where I'm from). I remember passing a bunch of it when walking to elementary school (this was back in the dark ages when kids did such a thing...) Anyway, we would peel little bits off and chew them -- yum!
Oh, and I checked out AlphabeThursday and I'm joining up next week for T! Looks like fun!
And thanks for stopping by!
