Tangled for Christmas

Tangled for Christmas

My art goal for December was to have at least ten Christmas-related Zentangle designs to show you. I’m a little short. I started another yesterday that I didn’t finish in time for this post. If it’s done before Saturday, I’ll include it in my year-end report.

If these snowflakes look familiar, it might be because I posted them a week and a half ago for the Diva Holidaze challenge:

Zentangle, snowflakes

I’ve always thought the pattern verdigogh looks like pine tree snippets:

Zentangle, verdigogh

I tried to make a Christmas tree from the henna drum pattern, but it wasn’t looking very Christmasy, so I began drawing clusters of holly leaves in place of the blossoms:

Zentangle, henna drum, holly

Here’s a Christmas tree made with aura-leah:

Zentangle, aura-leah, Christmas tree

I made a many-branched luv-a and turned it upside down for a Christmas tree. I’m pleased with the way it turned out.

This tree started out as flux and got embellished:

I thought munchin had the potential to look like tumbling Christmas trees, but I discovered that when I built them in clockwise clusters of five, they looked kind of like cubist stars. (My husband thinks they look like crystals–he was a geology major.)

My final Christmas tree is built from ahh, paradox, pearlz, ramy, heartline, muzic, flutter, jacki, and btl joos.
