For my fellow tangle junkies: some thoughts on collecting and organizing tangle patterns I'm a perfectionist. I didn't always know this about myself, or maybe I wasn't always one and I'm just settling into my own shoes a little as I get older. But "ehh.... good enough" is probably not something you'll hear me say. Because if I'm working on something I care about, and I know it's not the best I am capable of, I have to force myself to not redo every little thing and make it as good as I know it could be (and yes, I do realize that this occasionally makes me a little bit annoying). Patterns that I have developed My step outs are sometimes crazy, I usually find myself using a new pattern in a zentangle and then try to figure out how someone else could do the same. My mind isn’t always logical but this is what happens. I will share all the patterns I have given steps to in this post.
Zentangle: Meditation Through Pattern-Drawing by Maria Popova If greater creativity and more mental balance are among your new year’s resolutions, look no further than Zentangle — a type of meditation achieved through pattern-making, created by artist duo Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. Each pattern is built one line at a time, organically combining simple patterns into complex zentangles in unplanned, unexpected ways that grow, change and unfold on the page as you enter an immersive state of flow. Totally Tangled offers a fantastic introduction to the relaxing and beautiful practice through step-by-step instructions and over 100 original tangles. We’re particularly taken with Zentagle because its basic principle — building on simple shapes and combining different patterns into complex creativity — is such a beautiful visual metaphor for our core philosophy of combinatorial creativity.

Allereerst heb ik 3 stroken getekend, en ze vervolgens van elkaar los gesneden.Daarna in elkaar zetten en voila daar is de bal. This was a fun thing to make.A lot of work, but with a nice result I think.First I drew three strips and cut them out.Than I put them together and make it a bal.And now my husband and I are going on a vacation for 2 weeks to Auvergne in France.I hope to come back with a lot of energy and inspiration.

How to draw GRASSROOTS « TanglePatterns.com Happy Monday, y’all. Delighted as always to have your company again today. I was looking through my “archives” for something both simple to do as well as being just a little different and remembered Australian CZT Lianne Woods’s Grassroots tangle. Grassroots is based on a dot-grid and it’s another one of those tangles that provides a blank slate for embellishment.
How to draw MI2 (ME TOO) By Linda Farmer, CZT CZT® Mimi Lempart of Florence, MA, and a graduate of the very first CZT class, created this amazing ornate tangle she’s named Mi² (Me Too).
