How to draw VEEZLEY

Zentangle pattern: VeezleyI just love Veezley! This versatile tangle pattern comes from CZT® Sandy Hunter of Allen, Texas, a northern suburb of Dallas, and it’s her first tangle on the site. Sandy is a graduate of the recent CZT8 class in February 2012.

On Sandy’s blog along with her instructions for drawing Veezley and several variations, she calls on “an old cookie-decorating trick” to demonstrate a foolproof way of drawing a freehand grid. It’s a great tip, and I love her witty way of coaching us step by step through her tangle.

I enjoyed drawing Veezley so much that I played with some of Sandy’s variations and flipped a couple of them around for a change of viewpoint.

CZT Sandy Hunter's Veezley Variations

Sandy introduces herself and explains how she became involved with Zentangle® …

I was a cookie decorator for fourteen years, but then the economy tanked and after a very long, hard battle, the shop was forced to close its doors for good. I spent several months after that with the sinking feeling that I might never find my place in this world, because the job listings I was seeing out there didn’t suit my talents or abilities at all.

Husband, mother, friend- the three most important people in my life all had a hand in my introduction to Zentangle. First, my amazing husband, whose unfailing support and encouragement gave me the courage to try making it into a career. Second, my mom, who encouraged me to ‘like’ the Facebook page of a friend with an art studio, so I could see her upcoming class list (where I discovered the Zentangle class I took with Sandhya). Third, My former boss and friend, Linda, who learned about Zentangle from a fellow quilter and first introduced me to it. And finally, Rick and Maria, for creating the whole concept in the first place. They’re wonderful people, and I have found the whole CZT community to be very welcoming and encouraging.

So far I’ve only done a few classes, and they were of the small ‘home party’ variety. Pretty good, since I haven’t actively started seeking out places to teach yet!

Sandy illustrates the steps for drawing Veezley, here.

  • Oh this is an AWEsome tangle and variations – LOVE it/them! (Also enjoyed reading her whole post – pretty funny!) Her cookie-decorating tip was awesome too. Now I just have to figure out how to add a non-graph-paper page to my Moleskine (squared)! Guess I can tape in a piece of plain paper for that one… :)

    I have been making a pattern that would be a variation of this.When you make the arch line across the diamond shaped cells I allternate them one arch bows down like in Susan’s Veezley pattern and the next arches upward once you have put in the little lines you end up with a pattern of marque shapes.I was really glad to see Susan’s pattern, I know I’m starting to get the hang of zentangle now, and this is the first pattern I knew I could get right without having to try it out several times first!

    And here’s me thinking one never used graph paper to tangle……no wonder my grids look (pleasantly??) wonky! Love this Veezley Variety!
