A spot for me to share my obsession with zentangles. Please contact me at TinkerTangles @ gmail.com should you have any questions or comments. Thanks for stopping by!
Hi JJ, love the form of this tangle, very chrysanthymum'ish! I had trouble getting the concentric look, any tips? I started the first 4 sets of rings on opposite sides of each other, did you then keep following that pattern or did you work 'in the round'? Thanks, Tania.
Thanks Sewgirly! I have to say that the concentric look is not really a plan on my part, it's just how it tends to come out. My best guess is to watch the size of your rings. The more uniform the better. Also, try looking where you've been and use that as a guide to where you are going. (I hope that makes sense.) That being said, I wouldn't stress about the concentric-ness of the pattern. Just let it flow. I hope that helps.
Love your patterns...arc flower, leafly, verve, well actually all of them. I am new to the world of Zentangle and am very excited about trying these. Thank you for sharing. Susan
I love it. It's my first time trying Zentangle and you've helped me a lot. Thank you.
too hard to recreate... beginner?
Remember that there are no mistakes in Zentangle. I form the arches at intersections
Half moon crescents drawn from the inside out would have to begin from the center around a small circle that is divided into eights.(four is too big) Then each subsquest layer would begin in the center of one crescent to the center of the next. Thus beginning the spiral effect and the doubling effect of the crescent. Remember drawn on a straignt line they are scallops,, when the line is a circle the crecsents reduce in size toward the center, and double in size toward the outside.. I will try and send a photo.
Thank you for the Tangle patterns, they are most helpful to us all but to me great as I have only started. I am also interested the the boxes you are doing .xxx
What do I need to get started? The work I've seen is really amazing. But I really don't understand, HOW WHAT, ETC>
Google. That is the way I started doing zentangle. Use a 2H pencil with a ear bud for shading.
