Zentangle® Hollibaugh, Pea-nuckle, and an Inchie

Weekly challenge number 245 over at I am the Diva was to use Hollibaugh. I love the versatility of Hollibaugh and I'll bet we see a lot of interesting tangles going on this week. I was going to do Hollibaugh inside of Hollibaugh but after I made the full circle, I just went with an under layer of Hollibaugh. I pulled out my Inktense, Aqua markers, and colored pencils to play a bit.
Square One on Facebook's focus tangle this week is Pea-nuckle. Molly taught this at my CZT training and I was still lost. However, once I am challenged, well, I now get it. I have been playing with it even more and finding it really fun. I added Bales and Cadent.

Crochet Inchie
And, the prompt word for Every Inchie Monday was Crochet. Since I do crochet, I made it easy on myself this week and just crochet a tiny one inch square.

Thank you for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments!

    1. Thank you, Sally. I do like crochet because it is fast to do. This one only took a couple of minutes and I even guessed right as far as getting it to be one inch exactly!

    1. Thanks so much, Ilse. I saw something so very elegant in my mind before I started this tangle. Seldom turns out the way it looks in my head!

  4. It's been awhile since I crocheted so mine turned into a little wreath, it will be up later. You always inspire me with your many talents.

    1. Well, we are just such amazing people, right Kia LOL! I could never crochet with that really fine cotton though. I don't even know how anyone can see the stitches!

  10. I'm impressed you managed your crochet inchie first time round. I had to have several attempts.. Love the tangles, I can actually do the first one, and keep promising myself to learn more. One day.

    1. I am sure I was just lucky, Wendy. I anticipated that it would take a few tries. Take a look at TanglePatterns.com and try Crescent Moon. Easy one too!

  12. A round Hollibaugh - I wouldn't have thought of it. Very nice.
    Pea-nuckel isn't a tangle I've used except to try it out in my sketch book. I'll have to do more with that one. Looks nice.
    And your crochet inchie is great. I crochet too. Give me any kind of thread or yarn and I will turn it into something. :-D

    1. Nice to see you here, Melena! I used to have a lot of difficulty with Pea-nuckle at one time. Some tangles just don't click right away; however, when you go back to them they often are easy. I also love to make things with yarn. I like to spin my own too.
