Zentangle Snowflake, 2012
Micron Pen on Bristol, 10" x 10"
This zentangle started with a folded paper snowflake (like the ones I did in grade school). First I folded the paper and then cut into the folded edges and the outer edge. I know that in nature snowflakes have 6 sides. I just wanted more areas to tangle. I lightly traced parts of the cutouts as they were and connected the lines to make a new design. The idea came from Zen Mandalas. The author admits to getting the idea online. Now, I'm off to color the piece.
