I continued to be fascinated by how white goes on Black and occassionally revisit the technique.   I have more white than black tiles but I do find the challenge of playing with white gelly roll pen on black worth the effort.  Today I am looking at more White on Black Tiles. The examples rely heavily on line and fill to make a statement.  My choices to add white fill are used to add drama to the pieces.

The Frosty tangle is designed by Emily Perkins, a Certified Zentangle Teacher, to visit her Frosty step-outs, click here  I found Frosty  an absorbing tangle because it is a monotangle (one shape tangle) that intertwines and morphs similar to Tripoli but morphs into very interesting shapes and form that are different from the Tripoli..  Frosty requires mindful attention to stay on track with the pattern.

 There is nothing quite like a taking Cubine for a walk in the park.
The large fill areas can be challenging but remember to be slow and deliberate when doing the fill.
