How to draw CELTIC

Zentangle pattern: CelticHere’s a tangle pattern from down under – Sydney, Australia, to be precise. Australian Deanne Stewart-Mills was working on deconstructing Celtic knot patterns and came up with her pattern Celtic.

Deanne is a freelance paper arts and crafts teacher. She teaches cardmaking classes, and knitting and crochet. Many of her projects have been published in Australian magazines such as Stamping and Papercraft (now called Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft), Australian Paper Crafts, Creative Cardmaking and Papercraft and Scrapbook Creations.

“I have been tangling since the end of April (this year) and I am passionate about it. I have taught cardmaking for nearly 7 years and I am always on the lookout for interesting things. I have been into art and creativity since I was a little girl (I am now 42). I am a huge fan of MC Escher and this art form really reminds me of that, which is probably how it caught my interest. I have always loved drawing, but stopped doing it for a long time (too many other hobbies got my attention) and I am very pleased to be back into it again, as a result of discovering Zentangle.

I am really pleased that I finally worked out that the Celtic pattern begins with a simple zig zag. Once I got that, it was easy going to deconstruct. Celtic takes a little practice but is really quite easy once you have had a few goes at it. The look of Celtic can be varied by changing the height of the zig zag, and the length (a higher zig zag creates a larger celtic design).”

I found Celtic required my full concentration to get the lines to meet up, and as Deanne points out it certainly does take a little practice. As you can tell from comparing Deanne’s drawing below to my example above she’s had a lot of practice. And me? Not so much ;-)

Deanne illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing her tangle pattern Celtic below.
