COPADA, a new tangle

ZIA "Early Morning"
Tangles: Copada, Demi, Knightsbridge Aura and more

Copada runs along the top of this ZIA tile. I find the onion domes create a lovely echo of the pattern.

I've collected quite a number of possible tangle names from those strange 'words' that proved I wasn't a robot, before the 'words' became seriously peculiar. From that list I had half a dozen possible names for this pattern, so I polled my household. Here's Copada. Have fun!

  6. Almost two months later, I was trying to figure out where I had seen this tangle...couldn't remember the name (I could only remember it was a cool name, but not even what it started with!) and I couldn't remember the artist (I could only remember it was a tangler I admire), so I couldn't use tanglepatterns. It was driving me crazy!

    Thank goodness for Genevieve and her Zentangle Harmony weekly round up! In a moment of inspiration, I searched my inbox for all the Weekly Roundups, and figuring it had been nearly two months, started at the end of May. Bingo!!! So I really need to start using this tangle so I don't forget it again.

    Just thought I'd post that your tangle has been on my mind, Margaret, and I so glad I "found" it again!

    1. So glad you found it Amy! I am definitely losing track of tangles. I have a card file binder with over 350 and I can usually remember either the name, OR the tangle, OR something that interested me about it. So I have trouble finding things too. :)

  8. This is beautiful and reminded me that I started an oil painting about ...in March that I never finished that is of St. Basil's in Moscow. So your Zentangle is really appropriate for a memory jog. Really great pattern, thank you for sharing.

  15. Love it! Love it! Love it! Thank you SO much for sharing! If I didn't have to leave the house right now for a funeral, I'd be tangling. I guess it would rude to tangle during a funeral! Dang!

  16. That's just lovely! It has a very Middle-Eastern, "Moorish" flavor to it--thank you, very much! I shall enjoy using this one, and adding it to my "Tangle Compendium".
