There is another guest challenger this week on the Diva’s blog.  Caroline Broady is one of the world’s youngest Certified Zentangle Teachers and has challenged us to use a tangle which she developed herself, called Truffle.  The step-outs can be found here.

Last week I mentioned that I had been playing with Brusho and cling film to make some coloured background paper at my first workshop with a CZT.  We used one at the workshop and the other was left for us to use whenever we liked.  I decided to use it this week for Truffle.

54I used coloured pencils for the shading but I didn’t find them as easy to use.  More practice needed I think.

Here is the tangle which we did at the workshop using the second coloured background.  We used graphite on this one for the shading

55This week because my Monday night class has finished for the summer I’ve managed to do my tangle much earlier than normal so there aren’t so many others to look at yet.  Will need to keep bobbing back to check out the rest of the entries.  Recommend that you do so too.

    Oh I love the airy-ness of your truffle tangle. You’ve found some tangles that go well with it. The colours are fabulous. I really like the blue. one.

    I love how you used the framework of truffle to display other tangles. Beautiful job.

      It was something that Caroline Broady suggested so I did spend quite some time trying to find ones that might work, in the end I think that Onamato works best as suggested by Caroline!
