Gloria J Zucaro's "Cirquital & Munchin"

3.5"H x 3.5"W Original Pen and Ink on Zentangle Tile.
$5.00 Unframed.  $7.00 Framed. 
This Zentangle tile has the two patterns known as "Cirquital" and "Munchin".  The challenge from the site this week.  We were to use only these two patterns in our design.  Not an easy challenge, as there is the temptation to add in some filler designs, and thereby defeat the challenge purpose. I had never done either of these designs before.  Aparently the "cirqu" part of the first design refers to circus.  With that in mind, I thought of Cirque du Soleil and red and white circus tents.  The balls tumbling across my design, are to represent the tumblers in Cirque du Soleil. And the Munchin could represent the high wire acts?!


  1. Fantastic idea! And so well done!

  2. It gives a summer feeling somhow! Very nice done.

  3. Fun - I really like the vibrant, overlapping cirquitals, and that you've used smaller ones to pin or stretch your piece.

  4. Making the cirquital red and white makes them very pepperminty - I like how you alternated the coloration between them.

  5. Great color idea - And I like how the little cirquitals in the corners make me think of knots holding a sail.

  6. They look like peppermint candy. Very nice.


Thanks for leaving me a message. I so appreciate hearing from you.
