Zentangle® Molygon, Balo, Flux, and 'Nzeppel

We are revisiting Molygon over at I am the Diva this week. Always a good idea to go back to tangles that you enjoyed but often forget to use.
I so enjoyed doing tangles on cardboard, that I used another one this week. I drew the Molygon around a circle using a Copic multiliner in purple. Then, I went around in gel pens filling in the negative space. A white colored pencil added some highlights and a white gel pen aura was added to the entire outer edge.

The focus tangle for Square One on Facebook was to use Jodi Christiansen, CZT's, Balo.
And, for this week's extra, the next page of my Zentangle journal featuring variations of Flux and 'Nzeppel.
Thank you for stopping by, and a special thanks to those of you who leave me comments. I so enjoy reading them.

  1. Well Jean, I loaded up my tangle just after yours. We're on a similar time track today! LOL You're Diva Challenge Molygon is wonderful. It is so soft looking and colorful. I really like how you put the color in between the Molygon shapes. Great idea. I like your Balo. It's one I forget to use. And your Mooka is great with the zig zag across it mirroring that in Balo. Wonderful. I like the variations of Flux (but I think you called it Purk in the description above it?) and how you set them in Tipple. It's nice to see the variations in 'Nzeppel too. Another one of my favorites! Here's to hoping you have a great week! :-D

    1. Melena, I was running a bit late yesterday. We had some early errands that kept me from my tangling. I thought it was fun to add the zigzag to the Mooka since it is nice to find a way to tie in tangles. I'm glad you saw my mistake, and I have fixed it. Thanks :)

    1. Thank you, Deanne. I'm not usually a "rainbow" type of person, and once I started it was a challenge to find gel pens that worked. They are not the easiest pens to work with.

  5. I love your Molygon color wheel, but also your delicate black and white creations. I didn't see any purk (yeap, I quickly went to fetched the magnifying glass: nothing) but found a beautiful flux creation instead.

    1. I hadn't thought of it as a color wheel, but it truly is, Susie. Yes, Melena pointed it out as well and I have edited the post to change Purk to Flux. I had to laugh that you grabbed a magnifying glass. Sorry, just in a hurry and didn't catch my error :)

    1. The cardboard has its own set of challenges, but I think it's worth seeing how far it can be pushed. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks, Annemarie. Molygon seems to grow all on its own, for me anyway.

    1. Thanks, Heike. I just made it into a card. I do like to do that every now and then. Great to send to artsy friends.

  11. Love the colorful gel pen in the negative spaces! It really sets off the molygon. The white gell pen aura around it all really sets the whole thing off! Beautiful!

    1. The cardboard is quite dull, so I thought it needed the white to brighten it up, Kate. Thank you.
