Adventures in Monotangles : Cadent

I just discovered this weekly challenge, Adventures in Monotangles, found on Roy  Stauffer’s blog,  Mindful Creations .

I was so excited to see that he had chosen “Cadent”, an official Zentangle®  pattern. Cadent offers soooo many possibilities! I have put into my sketch/notes some ways to play with this pattern:

(as always, clicking on photos will enlarge them:-) )

Here is my first tile. It includes organic, floral forms done with Cadent technique.

Next, is a tile in which a large Cadent grid is the string. I call this one “Cadent Quilt.”

And last is one that occurred to me as I was falling asleep: what if Cadent pieces were doubled or transparent or floated? I also played with color on this one with Derwent Inktense pencils. I have not done much with color , so still experimenting.

This is another tile I did before the monotangle challenge, and it features Cadent.

The floral forms were created with cadent technique, as were the “leaves”. This Zentangle also features official zentangle patterns:

The seahorse, upper right, is my doing as well as little embellishments and the leaf forms on the left, under the floral forms.
