Linda’s List of Official Tangle Patterns

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. 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. The Zentangle-original tangles that aren’t posted online are reserved for Certified Zentangle Teachers® and are unlikely to be published in a book or online because CZTs are specifically asked not to publish tangles that have not been publicly released first by Rick and Maria. Originally there were 102 tangles, however new tangles have been named over time and these are included here. A reminder … Related:  Zentangle Step-outs and patternsbullet journalZentangle

How to draw BALO By Linda Farmer, CZT At first glance when I received CZT Hsin-Ya Hsu’s Balo tangle for consideration I thought it was Florida CZT Vicki Bassett’s Fandango. However on closer study I realized they are two different patterns. Similar, but not the same. Hsin-Ya’s inspiration for Balo was this pretty beaded bracelet, which she then deconstructed for us to draw as a tangle. Zentangle® co-founder Rick Roberts writes, “Drawn as a tangle” means that you repeat a series of elemental strokes in a certain structured way so you inevitably end up with a particular pattern without needing to know what the pattern you are creating is supposed to look like. Usually the number of elemental strokes needed are 3 or less. It also has to be done without any underlying pencil structure or preplanned grid. Hsin-Ya illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Balo below. Image copyright the artist and used with permission, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You might also like:

A little known hack from Japan to get your notebook organized Tools like Evernote make organizing and finding information really simple. Yet despite that, I still often find myself using the humble notebook to jot down valuable ideas, especially when I’m on the go. However notebooks are hard to organize your ideas. You either split your notebook into several sections for each ‘category’ and end up wasting valuable pages in the quieter sections or you just write your ideas as they come along making them hard to find later on. If this sounds familiar then you are going to love this little hack I was taught here in Japan by a friendly salariman. Introducing the Highfive notebook The back of your notebook will act like a tag list or index. For example let’s imagine you’re keeping a notebook for recipes and you just wrote down a Chinese recipe on the first page. Next you’d go to the last page and create the tag ‘Chinese’ by writing it on the first line right next to the papers left edge. And of course, you’re not limited to one tag per page. Mind blown?

• ❃ • ❋ • ❁ • tanglebucket • ✿ • ✽ • ❀ •: Tangle Remix, Vol. I + PUFFLE I work best when I'm (properly caffeinated and) avoiding something else I should be doing. Yesterday, this room was a disaster. Major upheaval going on in here. I've got at least a couple of hours of work left to do in it, so naturally, I'm diving into something I would rather be doing, and avoiding the mess altogether. There's just something about procrastination that gets my creativity crankin'. This is a really rewarding artistic exercise for me, taking tangle patterns I already know and kneading/squishing them into something new. Pardon the randomness of the pattern layouts; this post has been in the making for a looong time.

Tizzy - ein neues Muster / a new pattern   - Zenjoy Zentangle ® Zürich Schweiz Ich spiele grade hauptsächlich mit Farben und Kreisen. Mein neues Muster Tizzy passt mir da bestens ins Konzept, denn es passt gut in einen Kreis und lässt sich auf viele verschiedene Arten abwandeln. Als ich das Muster meinen engsten Tangle-Freundinnen aus Amerika gezeigt habe, weil ich keine Idee für einen Namen hatte, meinte Georgia, es müsse Tizzy ("aus dem Häuschen sein") heissen, denn sie fühle sich so, wenn sie es anschaue. Mir gefällt der Name, denn Tizzy ist ja auch ein Muster das nicht in ein Häuschen (im Sinne eines Vierecks) passen will, sondern sich viel lieber in Kreisen oder in "freier Wildbahn" aufhält. :-) Hier ist der Stepout dazu: Lately I play around a lot with colors and circles. My new pattern Tizzy fits in well in this type of sketchbook play, beause it goes well in circles and can be varied in many ways. Georgia from Washington said that it made her feel tizzy when she looks at it.

Future Planning in the Bullet Journal | Boho Berry Future planning is often touted as one of the weak points of the Bullet Journal system. While I agree that there is not really a built-in way to plan for future events, there are definitely quite a few options out there to get the job done. Today, I’m going to cover 5 of the more common ones. Sound good? Sweet! ** One thing to note before we begin is that a few of the following pictures are NOT my Bullet Journal. The “future log” is Ryder Carroll’s original solution to long-term future planning. “This Collection is used to store items that either need to be scheduled months in advance… or things that you want to get around to someday. While I love the simplicity of this method, I found out pretty quickly that splitting the months up this way left me little room for my crazy schedule of appointments and events. That’s not to say that I’ve given up entirely on this method though. In my version of this spread, I have my 3-month future log on the left, and a “Brain Dump” page on the right.

News from Zentangle You may have noticed this new tangle appearing here and there. This tangle is one of a rare "species" in our zentomology of tangles. Its basic structure is a malleable tessellation, but tripoli takes things a bit further. This tangle also introduces an effect called an Ehrenstein Illusion where tips of these triangles in a way that creates a space which seems brighter than surrounding areas. This is a fun tangle which invites all sorts of tangleations. . . . or roasted garlic. Some tips: Your triangles can have curved or straight edges.Leave a consistent space between them, like with aura.Although clusters of six triangles are most common, you can just as easily have 5, 7, 8 or more mixed throughout your tile. We look forward to seeing what else you do with tripoli! Oh, yes . . . why tripoli? Well, it's based on a three (tri) sided polygon (poli)!

Bullet Journal Future Log: The Hope Method – Bullet Journal I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank Ryder for sharing my Calendex system and thanks to everyone who has read, shared, reviewed and implemented it in their own bullet journal. My analog journey all started around 2 years ago when I began to recognise my obsession with online methods to organise both my personal and professional life. I was using an increasing number of any and all new GTD systems and productivity apps constantly being distracted like some sort of magpie when it sees something shiny. So I decided to simplify my efforts, getting rid of unnecessary apps and focus on a new streamlined workflow based around an analog method aided by digital tools. So after hunting for blogs/videos/tips on using the age old technology (paper and pen) to manage aspects of my life I came across the Bullet Journal. I was very intrigued and set off to see if I could make it work for me. The Calendex was born, a calendar/index hybrid. First things first ­ Setting up my Calendex.
