How to draw VEEZLEY

Zentangle pattern: Veezley. 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.I 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.

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.

"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

  • 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… 🙂

  • Pamela Scott

    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!

  • Sue Zanker

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