Farewell fragments - orbs

Do you remember this stencil string from a few posts back?  When I went to my Zentangle Primer Vol 1 for some circular fragment ideas, I decided the list needed to be expanded.  The Primer orbs grid is A-L and 21-25.  I just continued the numbering ( I mean lettering...). This is NOT an official or authorized list,  just my compilation of things bouncing out of my pen after some inspiration from a used book I picked up at Powell's Book Store called Japanese Design Motifs compiled by The Matsuya Piece-Goods Store and Translated by Fumie Adachi. There is also some Pinterest quilt block inspiration.  And some of these you will recognize as tangles just put into orbs.  Some are variations of one or all of the above!  And if you look closely, one is a repeat of the Zentangle grid (R25 just has a few more lines than D23 and my center is offset.)  N24 may look familiar too as it inspired last week's Pentangle Zendalas.  For a closer look at it's string, check out this post.

I took the time to do step outs on a couple of my favorites and hope you enjoy and are inspired by the whole list. 
O-21 and S-21 step-outs and variations for both

I also wanted to say farewell....I've decided that I spend too much time on electronics.  I wish to close this door so I can see where the next door leads.  I do plan to leave my blog up barring unforeseen circumstances.   It's possible I go into withdrawal and come back here.  It's also possible I post a picture or two onto Pinterest or the Mosaic app, but I truly want to spend more time doing and participating vs watching the world go by.  I think it's more important today than ever.  This blog has been a worthwhile experience for me, and hopefully for you too.  Thanks for your support.  And thanks for dropping by!
