Joanne Fink tutorial on her Zentangle-inspired dangle designs

More Zentangle-inspired fun from calligrapher and author of the very popular Zenspirations book, Joanne Fink. In her “Dangles” video (7:37 minutes), Joanne teaches one of her creative ways to embellish your art with dangle designs.

Joanne gives lots of great tips on how and where to add color accents to a dangle drawing with Sakura Gelly Roll Moonlight Pens. A good example of her technique can be found on the back cover of her Zenspirations book, and she also features her dangles on a beautiful greeting card.

In another example, Joanne highlights her dangles with Sakura Koi Watercolors. I’m sure you can think of all kinds of creative applications for this fun dangle technique.

The video was filmed live at the Winter CHA conference and the sound is not great because of the ambient crowd noise, but crank up the volume and stick with it – you will enjoy adding this fun new technique to your creative arsenal.

    Joanne – I love your Zentangles! To me, it looks like a sheet of music, where the notes are playing! I love this form of meditation and try to doodle whenever I can.

  • Susan Schultheis

    Oh I just love the dangle tangles! Watched your video and went to my “Sue-Dio” and created three!!! I did a dangle on black card stock and used Gelli Metallic and Moonlight pens. Just beautious! Thanks so much. This msg is long past the last comment so I hope you get to read it.

  • Robin Colling

    More tangles, please! Zentangle and tangles are so relaxing and at the same time, creative. What a great combination! More, please!

  • I have just received your Zenspirations book and am fascinated by the designs, one of which I have made into a Birthday card for a crafty friend. It is certainly for meditation and quietness. Thankyou, just what I needed x
