How to draw FRICLE

Zentangle pattern: FricleJulie Evans is a CZT® from the May 2011 class and Fricle is her first tangle on TanglePatterns. Julie offers Zentangle® classes in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area.

She writes that she “took one class with Lois and Earl Stokes, CZTs on the Big Island of Hawai’i and knew Zentangle® was in her future.

She enjoys exploring how different pens react to a variety of papers and surfaces. A self-appointed ‘type nerd’, Julie has a BFA in Design from University of North Carolina at Greensboro and AAS in Advertising & Graphic Design from Guilford Technical Community College (GTCC). She taught Advertising & Graphic Design at GTCC for 13 years and is now a full-time freelance graphic designer, custom lettering artist and tangler!

She describes Zentangle® as a drawing meditation. It’s a powerful and effective tool for personal healing and empowerment.”

There are many ways of varying the appearance of Fricle and my illustration is one very simple version. Julie shows several more intricate versions along with her step-by-step instructions for Fricle, here.

    Curves are somewhat my downfall. So when I saw this I loved it, it looks like I can master it. Will thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn another way to express frilling. . .

  • Virginia

    I loved the tangle Fricle but can’t find any others by Juliee. Is it located on an other place besides the tag shown on the left here?


    • Linda Farmer

      Hi Virginia, as I mentioned this is Julie’s first pattern on the site. As more patterns are added in the future, they’ll be listed with her tag.

  • this is a lovely pattern. I really like organic ones that are easy to draw. This will be added to my list.
