How to draw CYME

Zentangle pattern: Cyme. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.A Zentangle®-original pattern by Maria Thomas, Cyme is a pretty, decorative tangle that’s easy to draw. It makes use of one of the tangle enhancers, the aura.

Cyme can grow larger to fill a large or oddly shaped section with the addition of more “petals”. Remember to turn your tile for comfort!

The blog where the steps for Cyme were originally posted online no longer exists. I contacted Rick and Maria and they very kindly gave me permission to draw the steps and post them here for your reference. I obviously took a little license and embellished my example above. Below is an “original”. A touch of shading where the “petals” go under makes Cyme very dimensional.

Here are the step-by-step instructions for the official tangle Cyme.

    Hello

    The link on Toni Henneman’s site for Cyme appears to be broken. When you click on the Cyme thumbnail, It comes up as a facebook page and says ‘This content is currently unavailable’.
    Regards

    Lizzie

  • Margaret Brock

    It doesn’t work for me either. I poked around on Toni’s blog and found her own link to her fan site. It doesn’t work either.Linda if it seems to work for you, perhaps it’s cached on your computer?

    Oh the joys of newfangled technology 🙂

    • Linda Farmer

      Hmm, I suspect this is to do with Facebook. I’ve emailed Toni to see if we can come up with a workaround. Will keep you posted.

      Out of curiosity, are you a member of Facebook, Margaret? I’m wondering if it blocks people who aren’t members.

  • Margaret Brock

    I am a member of Facebook. After i posted, i did some more checking. Some links take me to the error Lizzie describes. Others take me to my own page, and when I search Facebook for Toni, I get to her page, but when I click on the photos link, I get the error again.

    It does seem like a Facebook glitch. Hopefully Toni can work it out with them.

    I have just tried to access the instructions for Cyme and get a message that the blog has been removed.Rats!!
