How to draw OOFS-A-DAISY

Zentangle pattern: Oofs-a-Daisy. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Oofs-a-Daisy is a tangle from Pickerington, Ohio CZT Cris Letourneau and this is her first on the site.

Cris is from the CZT#5 class of February 2011 and you can learn more about her here on her blog.

Cris had quite a scare recently when an MRI scan after a vertigo incident required further investigation. Thankfully it turned out to be a benign cyst but I’m sure it must have been a tremendously worrisome time for her. We are very relieved to learn of her positive diagnosis.

Oofs-a-Daisy was inspired by the Zentangle®-original tangle OoF. Cris introduced it recently in Dayton, Ohio at an event hosted by CZT Carole Ohl that Zentangle® co-founder Maria Thomas was attending. About her tangle Cris writes,

As I was doing OoF I was more focused on the take-off and land than where I should be landing.

I call it ‘oofs-a-daisy’ since it was supposed to be OOF, but I made an OOPs. …

Each daisy grows around a diamond center with 4 petals attached at the base and 4 attached at the tip.

This tangle requires a bit more focus, but offers so many possibilities for shading.

In their instructions for OoF, Rick and Maria give the “take off and land” hint Cris refers to,

Hint: When you draw your arcs, draw them all the way alongside the diamond edges, not just point to point.

For my example of Oofs-a-Daisy (where I completely skipped shading possibilities?) I used the dot grid method which is still visible, you can see the tiny dots in the middle of the diamonds. In Cris’s tangle those are solid diamonds anchoring the “daisy” petals. Using the dots helped me place the diamonds in an even fashion, and then I added solid ink to the “lobster claws” I saw in the tangle. (Cris sees daisies, I see lobster claws. Can’t help it, I live in Florida. Yum!)

You will notice that the “claws” face in one direction around a grid square — clockwise in the upper left “square”, then in the adjacent square they face the opposite, counterclockwise direction. That might help you from making even more OOPS … (No mistakes in Zentangle!)

Cris illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Oofs-a-Daisy here on her blog.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours.
