How to draw ALL ABOUT V

Zentangle pattern: All About V. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Here’s a tangle pattern from another Aussie tangler — there are getting to be a LOT of Zentangle® fans down under!

All About V is from Ksenija Vojisavljevic, and it’s her first pattern on the site. When I asked about her unusual name and how to pronounce it she tells me it is of Serbian origin and in both names the J should be pronounced as Y in the word ‘yes’.

As my surname starts on the letter V, my hand would move in the shape of V for years so the tangle popped up quite spontaneously.

I live in Melbourne Australia with my husband, two grown up daughters and several pets. I left my career in engineering of 15 years to go back to my passion for arts, children and teaching. For last fifteen years I have been teaching piano for AMEB (Australian Music Examination Board).

I found out about Zentangle from the DVD ‘Learn Zentangle Inspired Quilting’ with Jane Monk that came with the magazine Australian Quilters Companion. I have always had an attraction for beautiful patterns in nature, buildings, mathematics, and I love to look at patterns of knitting and crocheting. Zentangle suits me the best and I enjoy it tremendously. I have a great admiration for wonderful and talented  people from Zentangle community.

All About V takes a lot more focus than you might think. In fact eventually after covering a page with attempts I ended up combining Ksenija’s Steps 2 and 3 below into 1 — otherwise my V’s ended up lumpy. But then my V’s also have straighter lines than Ksenija’s curvy ones and your results may differ. Shading gives this tangle a little pop.

Here are Ksenija’s step-by-step instructions for drawing her All About V tangle pattern, along with some lovely border variations for you to try. Thanks for sharing, Ksenija!
