Tangle your name

Linda - Zentangle
Recently CZT® Laura Harms started a fun weekly Zentangle® challenge and it’s open to everyone to participate. To date these are the topics she’s posted:

  1. Simplicity
  2. Two Pencil String Technique
  3. Eyes Wide Shut
  4. Starry Eyed Surprise

Here’s my own challenge for you: tangle your name.

First pencil a border and a string on your tile. Preferably using the Zentangle® tile format of 3.5″ x 3.5″ (9 cm x 9 cm) square – I traced an actual tile into my sketchbook. Make sure to divide it so you have the same number of enclosed sections as there are letters in your name. I needed 5 sections in my tile for my first name.

Then, using “official” patterns only for this challenge (click on the tag “zentangle” in the left sidebar), fill each section with a pattern whose initial letter begins with the letters of your name.

I used:

  • L = Lace (with a little embellishment – no instructions online, I used Sandy Bartholomew’s AlphaTangle for my guide) (UPDATE – this is one of Sandy Bartholomew’s tangles, it is not an official tangle)
  • I = Isochor (no instructions online, ditto re AlphaTangle and without the little black beads)
  • N = Nightsbridge
  • D = Drupe, and
  • A = Ahh

This is one you can do over and over again, choosing different patterns and strings each time.

There are all kinds of possibilities with this concept because you can tangle any inspirational word you like … hmmm, think I’ll start with LOVE. And of course you can choose any tangle pattern you like, not only the official ones.

Now that I’ve finished my own challenge, I’m off to tackle Weeks 1-4.

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H
