Step-out of the month for February 2024: nexta
The Step-out of the Month for February 2024 was nexta by Dari Stolzoff.
The step-out for April is Florcha and was deconstructed by Gloria Sierra.
This month's step-out is for a tangle named Florcha, which was deconstructed by Gloria Sierra.
Gloria lives in Madrid, Spain and is an amateur and self-taught illustrator. In her own words:
"...Since I was a child I have been passionate about drawing and art in general. ... I also love digital drawing and I have studies on basic tools such as Photoshop, Procreate and Animation programs. Other things that I like are crafts, cool drawings, literature and digital publishing.
And finally and most importantly, hooked on the Zentangle®️ method, I certified in the CZT-EU4 online seminar."

Florcha is another step-out we've been sitting on from our submissions last August. There were just too many good ones in that batch, and we are very glad that Gloria was willing to wait until now for us to publish her lovely tangle. This what she says about Florcha:
"Florcha is based on a tile that I saw and in which it inspired me to make chained flowers. I also think it's a tangle where there is no mistake, it's about letting yourself go and getting tangled up until you create a floral mantle."
So just let yourself go and get tangled up in creating a lively texture of floral loops and petals. But if you prefer to take a slower approach, Gloria's step-out also includes a more simple, single version of Florcha which is quite beautiful in and of itself.
Florcha was the stepout of the month for April 2023. If you would like to receive the step-out of the month before it is published in our blog, you can sign up here:
