The TanglePatterns.com TANGLE GUIDE, 2012 Edition, is ready!

TanglePatterns TANGLE GUIDE, 2012 EditionWoohoo!!! It’s ready at last!

I’ve just finished tweaking the final details on the TanglePatterns.com TANGLE GUIDE, 2012 Edition.

The beautiful cover art is courtesy of the very talented Tasmanian artist and CZT®, Michele Beauchamp.

Today I am organizing myself for emailing it out and if my tests go smoothly (the file is 15MB!), I’ll begin sending it out tomorrow.

So it is possible you will receive your copy in a day or two. Rest assured it is coming.

All the official tangles and all the tangles that have appeared on the site from May 2010 to December 31, 2011 are included in this 15-page publication. Where there are no published instructions for some of the official Zentangle® tangles, I’ve provided a blank space for you to draw them in yourself when you have learned those tangles from your local CZT®.

And all the tangles are linked, so if you need a refresher on how to draw any of them you can just click on the image and be taken to the TanglePatterns page for the steps.

Thanks so much for your patience! This involved WAY more than I anticipated when I first announced it on December 31st but I think you’re going to love it. My Mom does :-).

"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

    Thanks again.

  • Les

    Linda how totally marvellous that you were able to achieve this in such a short time! And then around Xmas time too. Way to go girl, looking forward to seeing it. Kindest regards and the Happiest new Year with Fortune, Good Luck & Very Good Health to you and yours !! Les: )

  • Linda Farmer

    Thanks Les, and everyone! My Christmas tree is still up and until yesterday I had reindeer hanging off my dining room light fixture – I’m hoping to “de-tree” and put everything away this weekend. It’s been a very intense 2 weeks.

    And to those asking how to download it, it isn’t available to download. I will be emailing it out to everyone who has financially supported the site. Visit the “Donate” page for more info if you haven’t been following these developments.

  • Karen McGrath

    Way to go sis. And you taught yourself all of this web stuff! You don’t only rock – you are a one-woman rock-a-palooza! Love you and thanks for this amazing publication and for being such an amazing seestah! xoKake
    P.S. My Christmas tree is still up too — if it brings you joy — why not!

  • Bonnie Ditto

    Am new to Zentangle. Loving it. Thanks for Guide. Can’t wait-excited!

  • Dianne LeMay

    Hi Linda,
    I’m so excited and appreciative of your hard work on this. I remembered yesterday that you specified when sending in our donation checks to put our email in the memo line. I forgot to do that, so I just wanted to provide my email now so I don’t miss out on the Tangle Guide. [Thanks Diane – I have your email – Linda]
    Thanks again! 🙂

  • Hi. I just found your site yesterday and I am already in love with it. I went out and bought some pens today. I have had the books on my Amazon wishlist forever now but I also work with polymer clay, so I have been spending a lot of money on that. Funny thing is, I asked to observe the Detroit Polymer Clay Guild on Thursday before I decide to join and the coordinator told me yes and informed that there would be a special guest tomorrow night. Funny thing is: it’s about zentangle. Sometimes I do believe things are meant to be. Thank you for your hard work in putting together this great blog.

  • Melanye Narcarti

    I hope today is the day for the PDF file with all the tangles in it!!

  • Jessica

    Thank you in advance LInda! I can’t wait! This is such a treasure trove of information all in one guide. I am new to this art form and love your site.
    Thanks again!

  • analisa ocampo

    • Linda Farmer

      Hi Analisa, if you have financially supported the site you WILL receive the Guide. Visit the “Donate” page for more details. Thanks!

  • Cindy Adler

    Linda, This is AMAZING!!! I love it. It needs to be an app so that I can have it easily accessible at all times like: meetings, long trips (when I’m not driving) concerts or sitting with a friend in the hospital. WOW! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • Cindy Adler

    Forgot to comment on the LINKS! Another WOW. That was very smart and I greatly appreciate the effort to link the tangles.

  • Carole Ohl

    Nicely done, Linda!! This will stay on my computer’s desktop for handiness! Thank you!

  • I love the Tangle Guide you put out, Linda. It’s like a large version of the Tangle Pattern Refreshers put together.
    This is really awesome and I want to thank you again!

  • BrendaLea

    I just donated and so look forward to my copy of the PDF. Thanks so much for the great site and all of your hard, hard work!

    • Linda Farmer

      Hi BrendaLea, thanks so much for your support. I see you have a Comcast email address and Comcast blocks large files so I can’t send it to you there. If you would please send me a gmail address asap, I’ll get TANGLE GUIDE out to you. Thanks!

  • Marcia

    I’m sure my roadrunner email doesn’t have the capacity for the file, is it possible for you to upload it as a link on this site?

    I would LOVE to review it. I am always so enamored with the patterns I receive daily!!

    • Linda Farmer

      Hi Maria, I haven’t had problems with roadrunner, but a gmail account is free and IT WORKS! 🙂
      There is no link for the file, I email it myself after I receive the transaction notice from PayPal.
      Hope that answers your questions.
