Zentangle Inktober Tangles Day 2 – DELWHY

Zentangle Inktober Tangles Day 2 gave us the pattern DELWHY to work with.

Zentangle Inktober Tangles 2022 Day 2 - DELWHY

DELWHY, created by fellow CZT Stephanie Jennifer, is a sweet little pattern reminiscent of flower buds. Patterns like DELWHY hold so many possibilities! DELWHY can be chained together to make a border or it can be nested to fill in a space. All those open areas call for embellishment – at least they do to me! DELWHY was a new pattern for me, so I was excited to try it out!

Today’s Tangle

Zentangle Inktober Tangles Day 2 DELWHY

I love participating in events like Zentangle Inktober Tangles precisely for days like Day 2. There are hundreds – maybe thousands – of patterns out there created by talented artists like the one who created this one. Events like this curate a list of patterns to try. This year’s list includes a few favorites of mine, like yesterday’s RAIN, but most of the patterns are either new to me or rarely used.

I opted to use DELWHY as a reticula – the Zentangle word for framework – for other patterns. In this case, I created a loopy little pattern fragment that reminds me of a flower. I started by bumping three DELWHY shapes together. The three leaves at the base of each create the daisy shape in the middle. From there, I nested DELWHY shapes inbetween each other and built outwards. The embellished result looks nothing like the pattern example above, but that’s the best part of Zentangle – customizable patterns! I finished my piece with FESCU and TIPPLE.

To see the results from other prompts, please visit my hub page for the event or scroll through this carousel.

The Challenge: Zentangle Inktober Tangles by 7F5R

7F5R (Seven Forests Five Rivers) host a Zentangle version of Inktober every year called Inktober Tangles. Check out their Facebook group to find more information and to see the amazing art created by Zentangle teachers and artists from around the world. Each day, we are given a Zentangle pattern and are asked to create something with it. Some artists create beautiful frameworks to blend the various tangles together into one piece of art. I wish I was that organized! I create a card for each day – it gives me the freedom to change up mediums I use, but it also means I don’t have to prep anything ahead of time!
