Down the rabbit hole with Knightsbridge and Echoism

This week on Tangle Time we had fun with the tangles Knightsbridge and Echoism. I hadn’t thought of this until the finishing phases of the tangle, it really made me think of “Alice in Wonderland”. In the PM session, I decided to go “Through the Looking Glass”! View this post from my site by clicking the title so you can see new pictures as they are sent in.

I’m working on a video for my new YouTube Channel – I hope you will subscribe there, to get notice when I have it posted. In the meantime – take a look at all this wonderful work!!!

Thank you all for participating! I will add pictures as I receive them. Also, for those that have supported these free classes directly or by purchasing Zentangle products from my store, THANK YOU!

Tangle Time: Twing!

Add a bit of Twing to your Tangle! Wow, what a nice line/border tangle this is!!

A line or border tangle is one that is primarily just that one that goes in a line versus one that fills a space. Now, you could repeat it as we did last week with Zander and create something neat! You can also use this as a border, partial – or complete as you will see one of our tangler did just that in the photos below.

Every piece of art here is AMAZING!!!

Here are some close up shots from those who emailed me their work. If you were on one of the calls, or if you couldn’t make it and want to give this a shot, I would LOVE to share what you have done – Pop me an email with it and I will add it to this gallery! Click on any picture to enlarge. (Loving the variations!!)

Tangle Time: PokeLeaf in the Zander

With the end of Summer approaching, I felt the need to do some Nature-y/Organic tangles. Picking an old favorite, PokeLeaf, and one I enjoyed but hadn’t used in a while, Zander.

In my mind, I had set out how I wanted to place these two tangles. Similar to times before where we had a weave type pattern and then an organic one growing out of it – like a planter. In the sessions, share the stepouts that I plan to explore so everyone can see them and form an idea of how they might want to place their string and tangles – or, they can follow along with me. Everyone works different and my aim to appeal to everyone. This is why some may look completely different. All are completely amazing!!!!

Here are the screen shots from the two sessions.

Zentangle®’s Waybop!

Waybop is such a fun tangle! To be able to draw interlocking rings, is amazing. We use one stroke, the curved line, and two techniques, auraing and hollibaugh. The results are fantastic!

Because I am not an artist, I found that I needed to add one step before the official Zentangle® stepout starts – I have to start out with very light dots before the seeds. If you remember Munchin, it’s like that except that the dots are specifically placed versus randomly placed. Click here for my stepout. Be on the lookout for a video from me on this. Sometimes it helps to talk through it.

Here are the screen shots from the two sessions.

Tangle Time: Well!

Well, getting caught up on the blog. Hope you are well!! On our last Tangle Time, we focused on the tangle Well – and what a fun time we had!!!

Another great grid tangle brought to us by the folks at Zentangle®. This one has SO MANY options. Some that we found by “accident”. hahaha! This one has quite a number of steps, but Well worth it! When you look at the stepout, if you stop at the 8th step you have the variation that I put in the last step (which I still need to redo – look at my work to see how to do those stripes better.) ALSO, this one has the challenge of having to flip/reverese/mirror the direction of the curved lines in the 3rd step in each grid box. If you end up with an oops, (Occasional Opportunity Presented Suddenly) just go with it. It will turn out neat in any case.

Just look at how different some of these turned out. The creativity here is inspiring!!

Tangle Time: Which way, Schway?

This week we found our inner Escher and explored the tangle, Schway.

This is another one of those, easy, but not easy tangles. Takes a little concentration but Oh what fun and Oh so many fun things can be done with this.

The video is almost done and will be adding it soon to my YouTube Channel – I hope you will subscribe there, to receive notices as I add videos.

This amazingness is completely inspiring!!!

Tangle Time: Fun with Munchin!!

This week on Tangle Time we had two times the fun with the tangle Munchin! First we drew it in the traditional, Zentangle style and experimented with shading. Shading from the point and then from the baseline, and shading carefuly from both ends.

THEN, I threw everyone for a bit of a loop grabbed colored pens, pencils , whatever was handy and we let loose and had extra fun with this variation as it was presented by Molly Hollibaugh (Maria’s daughter) in a past Zentangle Project Pack. Here is her video.

Just look at all this wonderful work!!!

I will be adding a video on Munchin, soon, to my YouTube Channel – I hope you will subscribe there, to get notice when I get some new ones posted.

Tangle Time: Flukes and Shattuck

This week on Tangle Time we had fun with the tangles Flukes and Shattuck. Flukes is nice in that it has a bit of a 3D effect, looking like scales or shingles (adding shading really makes them pop!!). Shattuck is a nice “nature-y” looking tangle. It’s simple, but challenging to do at the same time. (For me anyway. hahaha!)

I’ll be working on videos for my new YouTube Channel – I hope you will subscribe there, to get notice when I have it posted. In the meantime – take a look at all this wonderful work!!!

Crazy Huggins!

What a fun couple of sessions exploring Crazy Huggins. We started out with Huggins – regular style. THEN we broke the rules and went crazy. Crazy, meaning, it’s matter of randomizing or scattering the dot grid and then adding the “c”s of Huggins, come what may. Occasionally, you have to add a little Cadent “s” in to connect some of the dots, to make it work right. The list of tangles I shared is after the pictures – but know you can fill with any tangle you wish! If this makes NO sense to you – then, you may have to keep an eye out for the next Crazy Huggins class. (Or maybe a video – we’ll see.) In the meantime, enjoy the beautiful art we created today!!

p.s. Thank you to everyone that participated. It is such a joy to share and have Zentangle fun with you!!!

Tangles shared on the call: Huggins, Tipple, Flux (Rick’s Version), Keeko, Poke Root, N’Zepple, Printemps. Remember – you can use any tangle to fill. Happy Tangling!!!

Dingsplatz!

Getting caught up on posts here. On July 7th, we focused our attention to this wonderful, hodgepodge of tangles called Dingsplatz. Starting with a loop deloop deloop as the frame and string all in one, and adding tangles inside and outside of the structure.

There are three Dingsplatz’ presented on the video that is on the Zentangle® Blog.

I have drawn the step out for the first example and will be working on the other two. (Pg 1Pg 2) Enjoy the results from this first session – and give it a go! Feel free to share your result on any of the social media you can – links below. I have 2 sessions coming up tomorrow, Tuesday July 21st 11am and 7pm EDT. See my list of classes HERE.

I’m so grateful to everyone that is traveling on this Zentangle® journey with me. Happy Tangling!!!
