In chapter 7 of the Zentangle Primer, there is a chapter on how to use reticula and fragments to make unique tiles. Often even though the fragment is the same, by mirroring it, or reversing it, different meta patterns can emerge . All of the reticula have an R- letter and number running from R-A1 to R-L3 Each reticula is different, ranging from regular grids, to triangular and circle patterns.
For my tile I chose R-C 1 which has a holibaugh type grid in one direction and a regular grid in the other. Both sets of lines are on the diagonal. I chose a rectangular fragment Y 1 with a hibred tangle in one corner.
I reversed and mirrored the fragment to create rectangles.
Sometimes it can be difficult to keep the fragment the right way up on each of the grid squares. A lot of concentration and focus initially, but once the fragment is undeway, the process becomes a zen like meditation.
The tile is R-C 1 Y1
I have been tangling since 2015. I found out about Zentangle from a colleague who had taken a class. Unfortunately, the person with whom they took the class, lived a considerable distance from me. Searching the Zentangle Website I found a Certified Zentangle Teacher much closer to me. After classes with her, for the best part of a year. She showed me that this was an art form I could feel comfortable with and find the creativity that I didn't think was there. The rest they say is history. In April 2017, I traveled to Providence RI to attend the training to become a certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). I am privileged to be CZT 26.
