How to draw DEEDAY

Angie is a member of the CZT#29 class from a year ago in June. If you’re curious about when and where each CZT class took place, you can find it here on TanglePatterns on the top menu bar on the ZENTANGLES > TEACHING ZENTANGLE® > HISTORY OF THE CZT SEMINAR PROGRAM page.

Angie introduces herself and explains how she named her Deeday,

I was intrigued by Zentangle® for years before ever taking my first class in 2015. I had tried to take a class for years prior, but I worked nights, weekends, and holidays, etc., in a 24/7/365 command center and could never find a local class on my off days. That is UNTIL I finally retired from my federal government job after 32+ years in 2014…YAY!

While I have been an avid stamper/cardmaker/papercrafter since 2004 after my husband passed away, I knew right away this new art form was going to be my new obsession. By the time I knew I wanted to take CZT training, the 2016 classes were full, so I waited a year and was finally certified at seminar 29 in June 2017.

I just love it, but I still have so many questions and so much to learn. I have been teaching a bit at a local wellness/yoga studio and a senior center.

I came up with this tangle last month on June 6th…D-Day. And since one of my favorite people in the world was my late Aunt Dee, I decided to call it Deeday. I hope you enjoy it!

Deeday is a lovely grid-based tangle and as you know when you play with the completed tangle fragment (as shown in Step 6 below) by rotating and/or mirroring it, you can come up with different configurations for grid-based tangles.

Angie illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Deeday below and she features it in a lovely monotangle tile where her shading makes different elements pop out.

In case you missed it ...

Zentangle is "not just the latest buzzword for ‘that thing I was already doing years ago in the margins of notebooks’."

So if that's what you've been thinking, you don't know Zentangle yet.

For enlightenment on this subject please read CZT Sandy Hunter's eloquent article On Understanding Zentangle.
