Day Three Hundred and Thirty Seven

  Day Three Hundred and Thirty Seven

I have been to beaches all over Australia and I usually find these little tiny shells that are flat on one side and curved on the other, with a spiral pattern in them.  They are what some animals use to shut themselves into their shells and protect themselves.  I guess there is a name for them, but I don't know what that is.   I called this pattern "Trap Doors".  It really is a variation of the Zentangle pattern "Printemps".    
 String Line - today's string line is almost the same as day 335, but with an added line. I have added more lines in the same string line in the next few days patterns.

The blank areas have the pattern "Trap Doors in them.

Day Three Hundred and Thirty Six

The lower case letter "w".   I have used the Broadscript Miniscule Style of font for this one.  It gives lots of room within the letter to tangle if you wanted.

Day Three Hundred and Thirty Four

 Day Three Hundred and Thirty Four

I was playing around with circles, you all know I love circles right!  I thought to myself "what if I put antennae on these, they would look like bugs".  ... and so, "Doodlebugs" were born. :)    I hope you like them.  Can you make bugs?

This is a slight variation on the pattern Vermal.  I have added a whole heap of different letters in both capitals and lower case, as well as numbers, just to show you that you can write messages using this tangle pattern.

I am behind a little

Hi everyone ... I have slipped behind a little again... I have almost run out of steam with this project.   I will get back up to date this week and post more tangle drawings.   My apologies if you were waiting to see them.   Only 35 days to do before the end of the year.  Thanks for following everyone x
