Inspired by her favorite tablecloth with a border and floral interior, Joey challenged us to use a border tangle and then add tangles inside, repeating the pattern. After I finished my tile, I noticed Joey said to repeat the pattern. Oops. So here’s my (incorrect) tile with Balo as the (bottom) border tangle, then N’Zeppel and Ennies.
Balo is a new tangle created by CZT Hsin-Ya Hsu and posted on TanglePatterns.com. Inspired by a beaded bracelet, Hsin-Ya deconstructed the pattern to make the tangle step-outs. It’s really pretty, and she uses a tan tile with highlights of brown ink on her Zentangle. It’s stunning, be sure to check it out.
