Introducing a new tangle: Hybizcuz

On today’s Tangle Time sessions, we premiered another wonderful tangle by Debbi Minero, Hybizcuz.

Debbi said that she created this to go with another that she was working on. The question Debbi had for me, and one that I have had for a while and will be getting an answer to soon, is if the her Tee-Kee Tangle is actually a tangle. I’m sharing it here because we may just create a category of “How to draw…” to fit these that we are not too sure about, but want to have fun with just the same.

From Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, founders of Zentangle®, in their book, “The Book of Zentangle®” define a tangle as “a pattern that has been deconstructed so you can recreate it by drawing simple strokes in a certain order”. They also talk about it being “non-representational and abstract so that we don’t get caught in a self-critical loop”.

Just as we use graphite in Zentangle to create amazing shades of gray that transform our tangling – there are a lot of tangles, even from Zentangle that add shades of gray to our Tangle library. Enjoy!!

First things first, here Debbi’s step-out for Hybizcuz. So cute and easy!!

Here is her step-out for Tee-Kee and her work with both Tee-Kee and Hybizcuz. So cute and well done!!

Have fun with these and when you post, please add in #tee-kee and #hybizcuz (and #tangleaddicts if you don’t mind.) Thank you Debbi for adding so much to our tangle library and experience!

Introducing a new tangle: 2lips

On the 3/24/2022 Tangle Time sessions, we are introducing a new tangle from our Tangle Addicts community, 2lips by CZTs Cherie Hartwick & me (Heather Hartwick Gladden).

It was a collaborative effort. Mom (Cherie) saw the pictures below and was inspired by the stained glass. She was working out the deconstruction and showed me when I was over for a visit. As we looked at it, I started playing with it myself and voila we came up with 2lips!

This is from the Alfred Fisher Mansion in Detroit.

Here is our step-out and some of our work.

Introducing a new tangle: Havasu

On today’s Tangle Time Sessions, we introduced a new tangle from our Tangle Addicts community, Havasu by Debbi Minero.

In Debbi’s post sharing her tangle, she says:
“Here is my first attempt at designing a Tangle and a step-out. It is a border tangle and can be used as a frame. It is named after the city Lake Havasu which is the resting place of my parents and also honors our Native American heritage .”

Here is one her inspirations, a 50 year old crocheted blanket by her grandmother with more of her work.
(Select any picture to make it in full.)

Here is her step-out.
