How to draw MI2 (ME TOO)

Zentangle pattern: Mi2CZT® Mimi Lempart of Florence, MA, and a graduate of the very first CZT class, created this amazing ornate tangle she’s named Mi² (Me Too).

Mimi writes, “I don’t often come up with tangle patterns, but this one is inspired by a tiny, intriguing, swatch of wallpaper I saw in a book. I call the pattern ‘Mi² (Me Too).’ As I sketched it out in pencil I realized a similarity to the way the patterns Huggins and W2 begin, except with oval, or seed-like shapes in alternating directions.

The first two steps illustrate that you line up the seed shapes and connect them vertically (alternating inside and out). In the next two steps you simply add auras, and depending on your spacing between seeds, you may draw as many, or few, as you like. In step five, add concentric diamond shapes to remaining open interior areas. The final step includes shading and few embellishments.”

For me the most challenging part of drawing Mi² (Me Too) was the very first step – getting the seeds spaced and aligned nicely. Reminding myself to take it nice and slow, one deliberate stroke at a time, and doing one row at a time was the way to handle that. From there this tangle comes together very nicely and though it looks very complicated, as you will see from Mimi’s instructions below it is really quite simple.

Below the steps are two beautiful monotangle Zentangles by Mimi with examples of ways to vary Mi² (Me Too). GREAT tangle Mimi, thanks for sharing!
