We like facets because it is unique, easy to do, fun to shade and you can use it in many ways. After you establish your unique facet grid, it is created with only one stroke, a straight line, similar to paradox. And when you see the instructions, you immediately understand how to create it.
Here's a four-tile Ensemble that Nancy created using facets. (See a larger version on this blog entry.)
Here are a few Zentangles that Rick and Maria created with facets (larger images on blog).
As you familiarize yourself with this tangle, explore doing it in different ways. Try starting with the outside lines and move to the center and then try it from the center to the outside. Remember to rotate your tile whenever that works best for you.
Another way to play with this pattern is to tangle it in sync with your breath - top line, inhale - bottom line, exhale - etc.
Thanks, Nancy for sharing this tangle!
