Square One: Bronx Cheer - It's a Focus not a Fix

As if I do not have enough to do, I joined another FB group that puts out a prompt for the week. Is not really a challenge, but has some similar elements. The group is focused on doing Zentangle® in its basic form. This means white tiles, black Micron and a pencil. No color, no figure strings, I think. I decided to do this as Erin has decided to put the Zendala Dare on hold at least until January. It also gives me a chance to really practice the basics more. I am enjoying using color more, but think I need to keep some focus on the basic b/w and the shading.  As you can guess from the title of this post, the prompt is to use Bronx Cheer as a main tangle and not to cover a mistake, which is probably the way that most people, at least early in seminars, tend to view it. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.

Tangles used: Bronx Cheer, Poke leaf, and Chillon

This was fun to do and did not take long at all. It also gave me a chance to not just focus on using the basic tools, but also tried to be focused on each stroke.  I have to admit, I did think a little about what I wanted to do with this tangle. Since the idea was to make it a main focus, I did not want to do something in the background that would make it look like it was covering something. I narrowed it down to Chillon and Batch. Either one would have worked, but Chillon is much simpler. 

I think anyone can view the FB page, but you do have to be a member to post. If you are interested, and on Facebook, type in Square One: Purely Zentangle® and the page should show up in your options. Click on it and look at what others have done.

Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!


  1. Very cool tile bronx cheer as the focus would be a challenge. I'm inching closer to facebook, in part because of this group.

  2. I just joined and this is the first one that I did. There are quite a few members.
