How to draw ARROWHEADS

Zentangle pattern: ArrowheadsDisclaimer: I certainly don’t claim Arrowheads as my original pattern. It’s one that’s probably been around as long as humankind has made patterns on pottery and fabric. Or in the sand for that matter. But it’s a striking and useful tangle pattern to have in your collection so I decided to post my own way of drawing it and giving it the honor of a Zentangle® name.

Arrowheads starts, as many tangle patterns do, by drawing a grid with diagonals.

In Step 4 below you’ll notice dots in the places where the solid fills go. This is how I keep myself from messing up the final step of filling in the Arrowheads. Thought I’d show that in case you’re concentration-challenged as I can sometimes be. If my mind wanders while I’m filling in the shapes, at least I can see where the fills should go.

One way to vary Arrowheads is to use different fills in the solid areas.

Hope you enjoy tangling with Arrowheads

    nice tip – will certainly save me from many “fixing” my fill errors!

  • Another beautiful pattern and a fantastic tip!

  • Peters Jones - Concord NH

    Your site and Zentangles(c) are terrific!

    I have all of my supplies but have not yet mustered the courage to make my first Zentangle. When you have to make a grid, do you use your pencil or your micron pen?

    • Linda Farmer, CZT

      Welcome, Nancy! In Zentangle a pencil is used to draw the border and string before tangling your tile, then shading when you’re done. All grids, whether lines or dots, are done with your Micron pen and are part of the finished Zentangle. Sometimes, particularly in the case of dot grids, the grid is not necessarily evident in the finished Zentangle.

      Take the plunge, you’ll do fine! A tile is small enough that you can keep practicing and then, much like a journal, have a wonderful record to look back on to enjoy and appreciate your progress. All part of the carefully thought-out design of the Zentangle Method. Happy tangling!

    Linda, in an earlier comment I mentioned That I was afraid to start my first zentangle…..Well, I jumped in and made two. My husband could not believe I made them. He was very impressed. I can see this becoming addictive! I find myself thinking of designs I want to try and I record them in my moleskine notebook like you suggested!! I am so glad I stumbled upon this art form, hobby, interest. I don’t know what to call it! Thanks Linda!!
