" IX " - Weekly Challenge #88

This summer, at the 9th CZT Seminar in Providence, RI, Rick and Maria released a new official Zentangle® tangle.  As they have done with other official tangles, they were cleverly cognizant of the "here and now" when it was time to give the new tangle a name.   Read more about "IX" and see step-out/instructions here.

This was a hard one for me to sink my teeth into.... but the 'process' (of drawing it) made it all worth while.  (It always does!)  Breathe, relax, enjoy.

Happy tangling....
..... and thank you for visiting.

  1. Wow, you really did a great job. What a concentration you must have had. The lines are all so even and so straight. I love the way you put the flowerish lines at the end of the IX, and the shading gives it a very metalic view. Great I love it.
