Happy Inktober Tangles Part 2.

These Inktober Tangles gives the opportunity to find out about tangles that are unknown to me! Several comes from Asian tanglers and they are rich and often floral and always lovely. 

Day 5.
Ayame (Emiko Kaneko)

Day 6.

Brrst (Kelly Barone)
This one was a happy reunion! As I first found this tangle a couple of years ago it became a favourite of mine. But what sometimes happens when there comes new tangles all the time, it landed in my pile of forgotten ones! Now I think I am going to use it more!

Day 8.
Zenith (Zt)

Day 9.
Xac (Susan Yeo)

Day 10.
Hirari (Midori Furuhashi)

Midori´s pattern is also found here. The link from the Inktober List Prompts goes to Instagram and there the step out is a little different. The one from Tanglepattern made my day since it was a guide to so many possibilities!! I love that. This pattern is very Asian in my opinion and though it looks complicated it is very easy to draw!

Happy Inktober Tangles 2021! Part 1.

Here we go again. October is definitely in the Autumn season here in Sweden. I know that is not the case on the other side of the globe where it now must be spring. I wasn´t sure that I could make it this year as I am working on an exhibition to come but I decided to keep it simple because I do want to be a part of this worldwide tangling during this month! Stephanie Jennifer is doing such a great job planning this fun!

 I found a small journal in which I had done Arukas  for 30 days and half of this journal was still empty! I grabbed it and turned it upside down starting from the end of the little book and now I keep going. This is what I have done so far:

My new frontcover done with some Washitape
I made a while ago

I decided to use my fountain pens most of the time during this Inktober period, but also allow myself to use other supplies if I felt like it. Not many rules here!

First tangle: Lunar Flux  (Debbie E New)
Lovely first of Inktober with a tangle new to me: Lunar Flux deconstructed by Debbie New. I haven´t tried new tangles for a while since my priority has been to use the Zentanglemethod as a meditation. But this little one which starts with the pattern Flux was really fun to play with.

My first take on Nadine Roller´s Naaki for day 2.
Couldn´t resist making this tangle on a black Bijou! So easy and very meditative with only using 2 basic strokes. That´s my kind of pattern! Easy to learn and remember! I have done  more playing with this pattern after the first one:

I used pigma micron purple and blue.

Very quickly we moved into October the 3d:
Dewd (Zt). 
Dewd has become a go to tangle for me.  This time Iwas inspired by the PP15, which was such a wonderful Project Pack where Letters were in focus.

Today I made a mess at first, following the 4th prompt!Using my fountain pens getting into the tangling, I forgot that the ink was watersoluble. And that it took a while to dry. The area around my drawn square was smudged and first I tried to  use a broad yellow ocre acrylic pen to cover it up, but it looked even worse. Then I tried black gesso around my square and that made the trick! But there still is an Oops: I spelled Doris Bischop wrong on the page which I apologize for. I will fix this tomorrow in the journal but the picture came out like this and might not be changed here:
Whipdcreem (Doris Bisschop)
Yes you are right, Nadine Roller´s pattern wanted to make one more show, this time dressed up with a gem! Well well Naaki might come visiting again! This 4th day I also used one of the suggested strings for Inktober tangles.
