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). For example, I've attempted a few methods for collecting and organizing tangle patterns... index cards, flip cards, graph paper pads, Moleskine notebooks, different-sized journals, a small binder with page protectors, et cetera. First I had to let go of the idea that any journal I created would/could ever resemble Maria's... that just wasn't realistic for me. Here's how my lofty standards and I arrived at a solution I could run with. This beast of a craft punch came from Michael's. The bottom view.

How to draw ‘BRELLA By Linda Farmer, CZT “April showers bring May flowers …” – from a poem recorded in 1610 and later a proverb recorded in song in 1886. – Wikipedia. And April brings bunnies too … Canadian CZT Bunny (Frances) Wright shares her fun ’Brella tangle pattern with us today. She’s previously shared her very popular Heartrope and Inaura tangles with us. She writes, “I saw this pattern on a sweater and decided it would be a great tangle..and with ‘April Showers’ (as she broke into song) hopefully on the way, we all could use a nice ’Brella. It takes a bit of work but I really enjoyed the effect of drawing the lines over and over. As you will see from Bunny’s steps below, I alternated rows (or columns) of ’Brella and an interesting chevron pattern develops. As is always true in Zentangle®, there is no right side up with either tangles or Zentangles. Bunny illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing ’Brella below and she shows several variations. You might also like:

Me, My Craft and I: Zentangle ou l'art du gribouillage! Hello Buddies!! Pendant mon congé de maternité, vu qu'il m'était impossible de m'asseoir à ma table de travail pour faire mes petites créations chéries sans être interrompu par mon cher et tendre petit bout réclamant son dû à corps et à cris (humm vive la maternité!), j'ai dû me rabattre vers un art qui peut se faire à 1 main si l'on est un peu doué, tout en berçant bébé de l'autre. Le Zentangle, mes amis, est devenu mon nouvel exutoire, ma nouvelle forme d’expression artistique. Mais qu'est ce dont me direz-vous? On pourrait traduire par gribouillage zen ... Au plus simple, on débute par l'apprentissage des motifs. - Celui que j'utilise le plus est l'Uni Pin. On peut utiliser tous les stylos qui nous passe sous la main. Il m'arrive de colorer mes dessins et pour cela j'utilise plusieurs techniques: - L'aquarelle et la gouache en pastille. L'aquarelle donne une touche plus artistique aux dessins. Concernant le papier, là le choix est vaste.

Studio ML: ZIA bal Dit was een leuk ding om te maken zeg. Veel werk, maar met een leuk resultaat. 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.

TanglePatterns Strings | KunstKramKiste Es ist Pfingstmontag, ein ruhiger, sonniger Tag, der nun langsam in den Abend übergeht. Ich habe die Zeit genutzt und meine Winterkleidung aussortiert. Es ist nicht wahrscheinlich, dass jetzt noch winterliche Temperaturen zu erwarten sind. Selbst die sogenannte Schafskälte wird kaum dicke Winterjacken fordern. Aber ich habe die Zeit auch genutzt, um mich mit Stift und Papier ein wenig zu entspannen. Alle drei Teile sind klassische 9x9cm groß und ich habe zum Zeichnen den Pigmentliner 0,05 und Bleistift 2B zum Schattieren verwendet. Hier zeigt Linda Farmer neben ihrer sehr gut organisierten Mustersammlung seit Neuestem auch Stringvorschläge, die ich nutzen möchte, um einfach Muster auszuprobieren oder mir lange nicht verwendete wieder in Erinnerung zu bringen.
