Tangle Tuesday, Sampler Redux

1 Comment

I showed you this sampler back in May of 2011, when I first began to Zentangle. A fantastic way to get more comfortable with a bunch of tangle patterns.

I started by filling up the page with Cadent, which created a bunch of little boxes to fill in with other tangle patterns…

And, because I’m a total nerd, I took a picture of it every time I filled in a little square…

I really like looking at the step by step pictures…

Now that it’s all done I just need to go back and add the finishing touch, you guessed it, shading.

Tune in next week for The Shading!

  1. Love this post and the fact that it led me to I started doodling in the Zentangle style before I really knew that it was “a thing”. So happy I discovered it and all of the amazing web-sites, lists, books, tips and tricks! Your sampler is really cool and I’m looking forward to seeing it with the shading added. đŸ™‚
