a little lime: 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. Zentangle® Hi All, I know this isn't watercolor, although I do combine it with watercolors sometimes, but I'm answering the question that was raised in this morning's "WASH" as to what zentangle® is. I've become a Certified Zentangle Teacher, or CZT, since I used to hang around here in WC and I just wanted to post this somewhere where those who asked the question as to what zentangle® is would see the answer. (My making anywhere near beginning of the "Daily Wash" thread is a rarity.) I imagine this would normally be posted in a "Mixed Media" forum.
My tangles Margaret BremnerArtist and Certified Zentangle Teacher Here you'll find links to the blog posts where I show the steps for creating tangle patterns I've developed. They are alphabetical. Click on the name of the tangle, not the picture of it. Tangle patterns And so the mask is completed! Click the image for a larger view I’m am grateful for those who gave me feedback on my question regarding the background. I got several good tips, but according to the poll the majority voted for no background. And I think it might be the best choice :)
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. I apologize for some of the photo quality in my earlier postings. A Bed of Roses Doodle Addicted No, there are no bees in this doodle drawing. It’s me that’s been the busy bee! We recently had a big business event which had been consuming all of my time. But it’s done now (and was a huge success!) So I give you another flower doodle. Because you can never have enough flower doodles.
Outlines to Copy Outlines to Copy I am posting outlines that you can add doodle patterns too, and you are free to use however you wish. I will post a new one or maybe two each week for you to use. I have added a Mr Linky so that those who want to, can post their results. 100+ Impressive Black and White Patterns Collection You could have been in awe of the many freebies that Naldz started to share with you guys since the beginning of the year but it’s just a few from the many that you’ll be expecting the whole year round.

Zentangle: Meditation Through Pattern-Drawing by Maria Popova If greater creativity and more mental balance are among your new year’s resolutions, look no further than Zentangle — a type of meditation achieved through pattern-making, created by artist duo Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. Each pattern is built one line at a time, organically combining simple patterns into complex zentangles in unplanned, unexpected ways that grow, change and unfold on the page as you enter an immersive state of flow. Totally Tangled offers a fantastic introduction to the relaxing and beautiful practice through step-by-step instructions and over 100 original tangles.
New tangle or tangleation? What do you think.....is this a new tangle or a tangleation of keeko? It starts with keeko but reminds me of the knots in macramé. Years ago I loved making macramé pot plant hangers and wall hangings so I thought a good name might be mak-rah-mee (the pronunciation from the dictionary). You can just do one knot or add as many as you like in lines or random over your tile. Loop, tie, weave and tangle. A fun way to get yourself in a knot! Line Design Explained : Deluxe Edition I was asked if I could go into a bit more detail concerning the Line Design "process". I think the easiest way is with a few more pictures than my previous post on "how to". I hope this helps...and as always...if you ever have questions about anything on my blog...e-mail me at email@example.com The materials you need for this project are good drawing paper(9x12...but could be done any size), Sharpie Marker, and your choice of media(see the bottom of this post for some ideas). Start with a gentle curve line across the paper. Don't go too crazy hilly with the line...it will make it difficult in the steps that are to come!

Zentangle, Schmen-tangle! I stay away from controversial subjects and negative issues on this blog. At the risk of life and limb I am going to talk about something that might be considered controversial.I have been doing what is now called Zentangles with the quilting on my quilts long before there was such a thing called Zentangles. In this closeup you can see how I used a different filler design on each section, leaving the "Bolt" unquilted to make it stand out. This is a closer view of one section of the quilt. This quilt was made by dye painting a design and then overpainting the dye painted area with paints.
