Boomeresque’s Third Tangle Deconstruction? – Tercero

Zentangle Tercero Tangle Deconstruction

Hmm. I don’t know if there’s a Spanish word for “tangle” and whether it is (or would be) a masculine or feminine  proper noun, so I’m sticking with masculine since I named my second tangle deconstruction “Segundo“. (OTOH, consistency is probably overrated). My first tangle deconstruction was imaginatively named “Phirst” — which is how we sometimes spell “first” in Philadelphia, depending on how many beers have been consumed. After “Phirst” I switched to Spanish to make my tangle names seem more exotic and to perhaps express my dismay at some things Donald Trump has said. But, I digress…….  Before I get myself into trouble by being too political, here are my deconstruction and step outs for Tercero:

Zentangle Tercero Tangle Deconstruction

Tercero makes use of the “tangling behind” technique in Hollibaugh, one of my favorites of the “official” Zentangle® tangles. I think Tercero can be used as an interesting background because it can be oriented in different directions and the columns can be of different heights. If you are wanting a uniform look, it is important to have the ovals in each row somewhat overlap those below and above. However, even if they don’t, you should still draw a vertical line all the way down until you hit another oval. You can vary the look of this tangle by how you fill in (or don’t fill in) the ovals and with shading.

So, does anyone think this tangle was already “invented”?

I shared Tercero in several CZT groups and so far, no one thinks they have seen it before, so I’ll go ahead and submit it to Linda Farmer because if anyone would know if it’s “new”, she would.

Loved all.your four tangles and copied them several ways. Very unique ideas. Keep on creating and sharing.
