Zentangle Album Continued

Over the Christmas period I was not very well, and when we were not out and about, I spent a lot of time on the recliner, catching up with Christmas TV and doing some more drawings for my Zentangle album. Working on ATC-sized cards, these are reasonably quick to do, and not too taxing as I am copying them from my original Zentangle journal which is now getting so full that it’s hard to find anything quickly.

Here are the latest designs.

Individually, so that you can see the details.

Finery is another self-explanatory pattern with no need for step-out instructions. When I first started, I found this one really hard to get right for some reason! Now I use it a lot as I love it.

Planateen is one of my absolute favourite patterns – it reminds me of Chinese roof tiles and looks really difficult to draw, but it’s actually really easy, and has a very surprising start.

Nzeppel is another favourite, but I had a terrible time learning how to draw this one! I don’t know why I struggled so much because it’s really quite simple once you get the hang of it.

Purk (also a great favourite) is another one which doesn’t really require step-outs to work out how to draw it.

Huggins is another one that looks deceptively difficult, but as long as you draw a good even dot grid, it’s very easy to do, and has loads of potential for variation and embellishment. I love this pattern.

Finally for today, this is my own design – my first one! You can read more about it here.

I have ordered some ATC-pocket pages and a ring binder with transparent pockets on the covers for inserting my own designs, so I can start constructing my new album, which will make it a lot easier to find the designs I want.

  5. Just in case you don't get my reply on your Youtube channel Sara, I'll reply here too, in case you return. Sorry I can't put the step-outs on my blog because I've been told its against copyright, but if you visit the Tangle Patterns site (logo and link in my RH sidebar) you can find all these patterns and links to the sites of the designers, where all will be revealed. Thank you for your very kind comments about my blog, and I'm glad youy enjoyed your visit! I'd love to see what you do with your own Zentangle album. It's been a while since I've done any but I hope to rectify that soon!

    Shoshi
