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 …

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?

creativityUNLEASHED by traci bautista 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.

Art Zen - Page 1 - Art Zen Lier les motifs Il s'agit de prolonger les lignes (ou les doubles traits) d'un motif pour en créer un nouveau ou bien pour relier deux motifs entre eux. Cette technique apporte de l'unité au dessin et le fil conducteur devient ainsi moins perceptible. Dans mon carré, j'ai ainsi comblé l'espace entre le quadrillage et le motif "toile d'araignée". Simplicité Juste deux motifs pour un carré très ajouré ... Motifs similaires Ces motifs similaires ne m'ont pas vraiment inspirée pour faire une composition harmonieuse. Je vous montre quand même une photo ... modifiée par un effet embossage. Illusion de paysage Tout en restant dans l'abstrait, il s'agit d'appliquer les principes de la composition d'un paysage. - le motif diminue en taille, important au premier plan jusqu'à ce que les lignes se rejoignent à l'arrière-plan, - les motifs vont du plus foncé au premier plan, jusqu'à s'estomper à l'arrière plan. Je vous montre le carré réalisé comme un exemple à ne pas suivre. Les trois motifs utilisés :

The Kathryn Wheel 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.
