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.

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.

Step-by-steps & patterns Examples of this and alternative method here I draw string a lot so it's all over the blog. See also here and here. ("Well" is an official Zentangle pattern - this is just my spin on it) See an example of Morning Glories here Zendala Templates Here are previews of my mandala/Zendala templates; new ones are added at the top.Click one of the images below to download the full-size PDF templates. If you would like some more detailed designs for colouring, check out my colouring book, Geneviève's Mandalas. Template #52 Template #51 How to draw GRASSROOTS « 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.

Doodling « Elizabeth Rosenberg's Blog I’ve always been a doodler. All the way back in my high school days, I used to doodle while the teacher was lecturing (though I might have been better off if I’d taken notes instead). I’d fill page after page of my notebooks with doodles. Most of them featured spirals, which I loved even back then. I especially loved doodling during music appreciation class. I remember my doodles becoming very loose and flowing when listening to classical music.

Feeling Inspired, Original and Inspirational Art by Valentina Ramos I have been dreaming, working and wishing on creating tons of different products with my designs. One of the goals is to see my designs on fabrics. I have been printing and trying o do little things with my designs but now it’s time to dream BIG. "A Super cool, awesome and well known company bought my designs and is producing pillow covers, sheets, duvets, curtain showers, place mats, apron, tea towels, etc and etc ;)" (Note I'm talking about MY wish in present tense, that is the way the Universe process wishes faster ;) )

Anneke (Merry-Go-Round) Because I got many requests, I will also write in Dutch from now! Lines, dots, circles, arcs, the S-shape, and arising therefrom ovals, triangles, squares and rectangles, scrolls and spirals, waves and zigzags....With these basic elements we build up the tangle patterns, they form the basics of Zentangle®! Quite soon after I had read the directions in the Diva's Weekly Challenge #123 I knew I wanted to create "something" with those.
