I know it’s hard to avoid media reports but may your daily Zentangle® practice comfort your mind and help get you through the days as we all face this unprecedented worldwide health challenge. And hey, it makes for relaxing and creative “social distancing” time 🙂 As one of my sweet sisters, Karen, wrote me this morning, “perfect antidote to much of the hurly burly going on out there in the world!

New Jersey CZT Shilpi Gupta is back with us today to share her oh-so-easy Vibes tangle.

Last summer we explored Shilip’s Syng tangle and Vibes is her second on the site.

Shilpi writes,

This is a new pattern that was inspired by vibrations on a string, while I was watching Brian Greene’s Ted talk on String Theory where he talks about string-like filaments of vibrating energy that create warps and curves and dimensions in our universe!

I am no physicist by any means and not sure if I understand the physics behind the theory, but I am just very intrigued by the theories that talk about the fabric of the cosmos and try to explain how our universe functions.

Keeping these complex ideas aside and coming back to the simplicity of everyday life, I was very excited to create step-outs for this pattern of diamond-like shapes that kind of looks like a vibrating string 🙂

As I said, Vibes is super easy and you can get quite carried away doing all those little zigzags and auras. Inking in alternating bands would be interesting, as would adding color. Or inspired by the latest Dancing in the Moonlight Project Pack series, using Moonlight Gelly Roll pens on black tiles. For my example I attached a couple of tiny Vibes strings from the outer edges of the tile to add interest to the otherwise empty spots.

Shilpi illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Vibes below. She writes, “I have embellished the pattern in the example tile with a mix of some color and simple beaded strings and also used Zentangle®-original pattern Betweed to give some love and support to Vibes.” Love and support, yes!
