Zentangle Inktober Tangles Day 16 – DINOVEL

Zentangle Inktober Tangles Day 16 gave me a cute nature-inspired pattern to play with.

Zentangle Pattern DINOVEL

DINOVEL, by Susan Yeo, CZT, creates a cute and delicate flower blossom. Easy to draw with three loops connect with round wavy lines, the resulting shape can hold hold a variety of embellishments. The basic version could be a vessel for color. I opted to expand upon the basic version by adding lines to amp up the depth and roundness.

Today’s Tangle

Zentangle Inktober Tangles Day 16 DINOVEL

When I practiced this pattern and created the sample bijou tile, I really wasn’t all that jazzed about it. Even though I generally like nature tangles, I just couldn’t get into the pattern. Like anything in life, you don’t have to like 100% of something and that includes Zentangle patterns! However, when I’m participating in a challenge like Inktober, I try to make something special out of each pattern.

I started this tile with the three DINOVEL shapes, but did not fill them in. I then set the tile aside for a little while. When I came back to it, I knew exactly what I wanted to to do with it, adding lines in the shape and finishing the tile with FESCU and MOOKA. I used my chalk pastel pencils to add color. In spite of my initial hesitation about this pattern, it really grew on me! I plan to use it again in future projects. In it’s simpler state, it would look lovely on a watercolor-washed background.
