Linda’s List of Official Tangle Patterns Sampler of a few Zentangle-original Tangle Patterns. Not all of the tangles created and introduced by Zentangle® originators Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas are posted online. This makes complete sense when you think about it because income from teaching about Zentangle is one aspect of their business. Learning about the original “102 Tangles” (now up to 154) and receiving instructions on how to teach them is part of the teacher certification seminar. (See this page for more about teaching Zentangle.) For those who are new to Zentangle, the Zentangle-original (aka “official”) tangles are those created and introduced by Zentangle HQ — that is to say patterns by Maria Thomas, Rick Roberts and Maria’s daughters Molly Hollibaugh “(pronounced: haul’-a’-baw’)” and Martha Huggins. However, every Zentangle-original tangle that does have authorized online drawing instructions is posted here on TanglePatterns and is linked in my list below.

River-Girl-Art: International Art Journal Swap I have recently shared with you my Totem Animals Journal that I have traveling with the 15 swap. I also have another journal out there traveling the world, I made and decorated its cover and introduction pages and sent it on its way. It has been journeying since 2010 In the I included a gift of an ATC for each contributor in my journal. This is a spread I did in Pearls beautiful "Poems, Quotes and Verses" Journal A section of my contribution in Milliande's "Connections" I did a tree of life inspired by Climt in Claresters "Life on Earth" Journal Euphaeidae chose a theme close to my heart Feminine Fertility So I loved playing in her journal and made some interactive pages And here I have a basket full of journals to play in over the next while. I thoroughly enjoy playing in these traveling journals and I am eagerly awaiting the day they arrive back home carrying all the art and dreams my fellow artists have shared.

How to create and keep an art journal by aisling d'art ©2006 Artist's journals are illustrated diaries and journals on any theme. An art journal can be a record of your daily thoughts, a travel journal, an exercise or diet diary, a dream journal, a place where you jot down your goals or to-do lists, or... well, almost any record that you'd like to keep in a book or notebook. They become "art journals" when you add any kind of illustration or embellishment to the pages. These pages share ideas and tips for creating and keeping your own illustrated journal.

creativityUNLEASHED by traci bautista Milliande Demetriou - Contemporary Mixed Media Artist How to Collage in Your Art Journals ©2004 - 2006 by Aisling D'Art click any image to see it larger Collage is an easy way to add art to your diary or journal. For years, I started each day with a quick collage, the same as I used to to "morning pages" as described in the book, The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. For me, collages are a more visual version of "morning pages." I usually allow a half an hour for each collage, but sometimes go back several times throughout the day to add things. Usually, I just work on the pages in a spiral-bound sketchbook, just as they are. Sometimes I'll gesso a few pages my journal, ahead of time. I'll leave a few pages for writing, then allow two or three pages that are left blank for collage. In an average journal, I'll gesso five to ten pages that I plan to use for painted, ornate or heavy collages. Remember that gesso is entirely optional. I use any gesso that's cheap, from the fine art supplies section of Michael's or any art supply store. I love layers in my work.
