Zentangle® Frunky and Y-ful Power

This week, being the first Monday of the month, is a UMT (Use My Tangle) week over at I am the Diva. This one comes from Katharina Königsbauer-Kolb and is called Frunky. She offered several variations and so I used one of hers and added my own as well.
The focus tangle on Square One on Facebook is to use Y-Ful Power by Shoshi.
I kept this one simple, mostly because I couldn't think of anything unusual to do with it.

And, for this week's burst of color, I tried Y-Ful using my Copic markers with a bit of white gel pen highlighting.


As usual, I want to thank all of you who faithfully leave me comments. They truly make me smile!

  1. What a cute take on Frunky! After viewing some of the other tiles in going to do another one. I didn't give the pattern the time it deserved. Lovely tile!

    1. I do think Frunky can do a lot more than I gave it myself, Cyndee. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

  2. I just love that colourful Y full. Primary colours can't be beaten sometimes can they? I like your take on Frunky too, very fluid.

    1. Red is one of the hardest colors to work with in Copics as they want to bleed more than others. However, the red is my favorite, so I just have to deal with it! Thanks, Margaret!

  3. I love your use of colour in Y full. Do you use different shades of the same colour of markers for the 3D effect?

    1. Yes, Miss L. You usually blend 3 to 4 colors, dark/medium/light, when using alcohol markers to blend and give depth.

  4. Hey Jean, I see you have a new crop of fescue coming up on your tile. Looks good.

    1. Duane, I would agree that this tangle is a tangle built on an auraed Fescu. It seems that a lot of the newer tangles are really variations on things we already know. It was fun to do though.

  7. Jean, your tiles are great. I like that variation of Frunky that you did. Frunky reminds me of another totally different tangle. I did find it and used it on my tile - Sand Swirl. Well, similar in that there is lots of auras anyway. I've always wanted to do Y-Ful Power but couldn't figure it out myself. Now I know where to get it. Thank you! But my favorite one is the colorful Y-Ful. You do such a great job with those Copic Markers. I think I'll stick with colored pencils though. Can't afford to go out and buy them and then learn a whole new set of skills. LOL We are all having so much fun with this. :-D

    1. Melena, colored pencils are a favorite of mine too. Actually, I love anything that makes color even crayons! Work with what you have. Not everyone just MUST have every single thing out there (like me, LOL!).

  12. the colorful one reminds me of the colored balls kids play in those pits. I love the simplistic primary colors, the white gel makes it pop 3D. Beautiful Diva challenge too!

    1. Yes, Lynda, I would agree that those colors and the shape of Y-Ful kind of makes those look like those balls. Thanks for stopping by :)
