Challenge #71 - New Tangle - Pea-Nuckle

The Diva's challenge this week (#71) is to use the brand spanking new Zentangle tangle Pea-nuckle designed by Holly, Rick and Maria's daughter.

I found this tangle a little challenging, I was bothered by the extra curve formed by my "s" shapes but after looking at the Diva's tangle examples more closely, I realized that's part of the tangle, who knew? I also looked at the direction once and thought I could work from memory. Why did I think that would work this time? Insanity is...

Anyway I completed this tile and realized I left out the middle portion. Whoops, thank goodness I left the negative space pure black and was able to add the missing "appendages" with white gel pen. There are no mistakes in the Zentangle process, just some opportunities. I enjoy the final outcome and the process.

For this tile I used a good toothy heavy-weight paper I found with grey specs. I often stop by the "Scrap Box", an Ann Arbor, MI recycling place offering lot's of stuff people would normally throw out. It's a great place to find paper and other neat items for craft projects. I found this paper for $1.00 per inch. I try to stop by at least once a month to see if they have any great finds on paper.
