Sunday afternoon Yintangles Group – Paradox Two-Fold with Lianne Woods, CZT

Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. I thought I’d share another tile from the Sunday Afternoon Yintangles Group I’m a member of. On Sunday 15 May, 2022, we met to complete a tile called Paradox Two-Fold with Lianne Woods, CZT. Let’s have a deeper look at it.

Lianne began by running us through the supplies we’d need for this Paradox Two-Fold tile. We were going to be working in four different colours, so she provided some guidance on what would work best. I have been exploring monotones lately, so I tried to use four different kinds of browns.

Why Paradox Two-Fold?

Lianne began by running us through the Paradox pattern by Zentangle as she used a slight variation of it.

We worked in rounds of two instead of single rounds (Thus Paradox Two-Fold) and it worked a treat. When it came time to black in the ends to form the fan shapes, this approach really helped.

We used a quite a few patterns

Each fan component used different tangles to fill them. We worked with a variation of Knights Bridge, Zonked, a variation of Shattuck and Paushalöv. I thought these were awesome choices as there were a couple of tangles I’d never used before.

In the centre of my Paradox Two-Fold tile I used Printemps and I embellished it to fit the space with some pearls and dots.

What tools did I use for Paradox Two-Fold with Lianne Woods, CZT?

Lianne recommended using a white tile, so I did. I used a traditional zentangle tile.

Lianne also recommended using some felt pens or markers and coloured pencils for the tangling. I have problems when I try to use my pens on top of coloured pencils, so I switched to using Derwent Inktense as my base colour for each fan.

I used my Ohuhu Dual Tip Markers for the coloured tangling and I emphasised this work with my Signo UniBall Gen pens in similar tones.

Lastly, Lianne used a Clear Stardust Gel Pen to add some sparkly highlights. I used my Wink-of-Stella pen instead and painted the edge and centre Printemps with it.

What does it mean in terms of my artistic work as a whole?

If you’ve been following along either on Facebook or Instagram lately, you’d know I’ve been trying to learn new things.

This months Sunday Afternoon Yintangles meet up was exactly what I needed. I loved tangling with Lianne. I loved seeing how she varies patterns in the slightest of ways and yields intriguing results.

It’s a perspective change I’ve been trying to build, and I thank Lianne for sharing with us so openly. All these little techniques and ways are great for challenging the status quo. They help to build the change in perspective I’m desiring.
