"Dugwud" Monotangle

This has become my default grid string when I can't think of anything else. It's been a lazy "weekend". I've been trying really hard not to give in to a cold, so I've been doing a lot of drawing and napping, so it's been a prolific 36 hours tangle-wise but I've pretty much accomplished nothing else.

I'm becoming rather fond of stacking strings since I discovered the "Stacked and Tangled" Facebook group via Jane Monk's One Tangle group. I did this last night while watching "Boyhood", a beautiful film by the way.
Stacked and Tangled

I don't know the name of some of the patterns. The top two are Ninna 2 & Ninna 3 and the bottom pattern is Purk. I've taken to penciling in a simple wavy stacked string and then scrolling through the photos on various FB tangle pages, picking a pattern that appeals to me and doing my thing with it.
I recently discovered the Facebook group Zentangle Artist Trading Card Swap and started this set for the next swap. I'm really excited about sending my art out into the world and the anticipation of goodies in my mailbox.

Thanks for stopping by! Your generous comments always make my day.
