tile in tile tangle

The Zentangle challenge of the week is to create a tile within a tile look.  Here's what I came up with.....

I feel like the top one is more successful - the inner tile is very apparent - less so in the bottom one.  I don't seem to know many dark/black tangles or couldn't think how to use them or something to make the larger, outside box the darker one.  At any rate, it was a fun exercise for my second outing.

You can see lots more tangles at I am the Diva, who hosts the weekly challenges.

  1. Nicely done! I agree that the first is more successful. The "mini-tile" edge is more evident. But I like the paint-spattery look in the lower right of the second one!

  4. Some beautiful tangles. Like you I struggled with the 'dark' ones and ended up colouring everything or shading it!

  10. These are both fun tiles. I love the leaf-looking tangle in the bottom tile--so simple, but effective in that shape.

  13. Great Zentangles. I like the 2nd one best, with an offset-tile. Do the tile at an angle instead of the straight center. Interesting...! Diana Hirsch
