This week's focus is Rain. Rain is one of the Zentangle®-original tangles and it makes a great border tangle. Rain can be drawn with irregular zigzags or very precise ones and each produces attractive effects.Rain was inspired by a design Maria and Rick saw on pottery in an Iranian exhibit in the Louvre on a trip to Paris. They playfully shuffled the letters spelling “Iran” into Rain.
One of the things I love about this group is to see the way everyone used each tangle in a different way. Some are very true to the original pattern. Some, you have to look carefully to find the pattern. Itend to use Rain in an organic way. Others have used it as a frame, in a geometric way, a circle, endless possibilities. It helps me think outside the box, but this is one I do like in an organic form. I have mixed it with some Catkin, and what is Rain without Msst? The flower is just a flower.
