Bonus Halloween Zentangle

In October, for my 13 Days of Halloween series, I did a piece of art using the 2019 Inktober Tangles challenge.

As I mentioned in that post, there were a few patterns that I felt didn’t get a proper chance in the tiny space they were used for.  I wanted to take them away and do a proper piece with them.  And so I did.

The first one was DreamDex – which was used in the rightmost ghost..  Here are the steps I found with a Google search.

I did this one in classic black ink, on a square page, and I really like how it looks.

The next pattern, Ratoon, is what I used for the left most witch.  Google lead me to these steps:


I wasn’t sure how to repeat this one, so I just did a simple piece.

I did an instance of this one, in sparkly glittery pink…

…then decided to expand it to a full piece.  With a colour block background because I thought more pattern would have been too much.

Nik, used for the witch in the air, presented me with a bit more trouble.  It looks simple enough.

Zentangle pattern: Nik.

But doing it freehand looked too messy.

Using a ruler looked… weird.

I did get something semi-decent in the end though.

I do like learning new tangles.  I have a whole folder on my computer of tangles to try out.  Which I will maybe possibly get to one day maybe.
