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. Learning about the original “102 Tangles” (now up to 154) and receiving instructions on how to teach them is part of the teacher certification seminar. (See this page for more about teaching Zentangle.) 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. However, every Zentangle-original tangle that does have authorized online drawing instructions is posted here on TanglePatterns and is linked in my list below.

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. 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.

: 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'.

Future Planning in the Bullet Journal 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! 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.

News from Zentangle We are thrilled with your response to our Zentangle teacher training program. Already, people from America, Canada and as far away as Europe are planning to attend. Expect an update with registration details in September. 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.
