Zentangle® Eaxy, Fassett, and an Inchie

This week is a Use My Tangle over at The Diva Challenge. This one, Eaxy, comes from Nadine Roller, CZT. I just got a new set of Lavender Copic Multiliners and had to play. I used Paizel, by Angie Vangalis, CZT, in the front and added some colored pencils as well on the Renaissance tile.
The prompt tangle for Square One, Facebook, is Fassett. I divided the tile into four sections to try different ways to do the tangle.
And, Every Inchie Monday has a prompt word of Cloud. Sorry to do this to you, but I just couldn't get the idea of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs out of my head even though I've never seen the movie LOL!

Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy reading your comments!

  1. Paizel is a nice choice to fill and surround by the lovely but (for me) difficult pattern Eaxy but you did a good job and I like the colours. Fassett is more easy to draw and one of my favorites, It's a splendid idea to divide the tile in different sections with variations of the tangle, I like this tile also very much. I don't know" cloudy with a chance of meatballs", but when that is a name of a film, I understand why you have chosen for this special drawing!

    1. I don't think I had ever done Paizel before. It was one of those, open and point, selections. I love to do that! As a teacher, I have found that this kind of tangle can be very difficult for some. It made me just a tad crazy. I could do it fine by itself, but with something added, not so much! Good thing there are lots of different types of tangles to choose from.

  3. This Diva tile is a lovely mix of colours and the idea of using just the two paytterns works really well.

    1. I don't know how you ever deconstructed this one, Nadine. You are a brave soul, LOL! I'm loving how easy others make it look. There are several tangles that make my brain spin though. Guess all our brains think differently, but it's always good to try.

  11. Wow, I love the golden glow you gave Eaxy on top of the tile. It also looks like Eaxy is an easy patten to you!

    1. Purple just seems to go with yellow, like Easter, Ilse. No, not really easy, but I muddled through :)

  23. I'm very impressed by your "Eaxy". I have yet to master it, but Dieana Schreur shared different step outs for it which I am having less trouble with. Fassett is one of my favorite tangles for exactly the reason you demonstrated in your tile.

    1. I will have to check that out, Suzanne. I could use an easier way too!

  24. Great Eaxy tile Jean. That Paisel is really nice. I've used it a few times but never thought to make it bigger like that. Love it. I really lie Fassett too. Nice to use the different variations like that. Good idea. And your meatballs are funny. I never saw that movie nor read the book. I think I heard of it though. Wonderful art work all around.

    1. I didn't get to see everyone's work this week, Melena. I will write about it later on this week's post, but I enjoyed seeing many creative uses of these tangles earlier in the week.

    1. It was one of those "point and use" tangles, Jennifer. Sometimes those work and others, well, not so much :)
