Tangle Refresher 24

Tangle Refresher!

While we’re into revisiting a little tangle history today, this is a good opportunity to revisit our Zentangle® vocabulary too.

As Sandy Steen Bartholomew reminds us in her AlphaTangle: A Truly Tangled Alphabet:

Zentangle is a noun, not a verb. Don’t say “I Zentangled my bathroom floor.” Say “I tangled my bathroom floor.” Other things to say: “I need to create a Zentangle, right now!” “Sorry, I didn’t hear you. I was busy tangling.”

I often see references online to “zentangling” – ain’t no such thing. Don’t say it, don’t write it. Makes me wince when I see it. “Zentangling” or “Zentangled” don’t exist for the same reasons we use terms like “photocopying” not “xeroxing”, or “tissues” not “kleenex”. Legal trademarks. The correct terms are tangling, or tangled.

We’re all dyed-in-the-wool Zentangle Zealots here and out of respect for our passion and lest we lead newbies astray let’s endeavor to use the correct vocabulary. We’re tangling, baby, tangling.

The Tangle Refresher series, aka Buried Treasure, highlights hidden tangle gems from the past. It can remind you of patterns you might not have used for a while or introduce you to patterns you might not have come across yet.

Here are five more tangle pattern gems from a year ago for your tangling pleasure. Now go create a Zentangle, and happy TANGLING!
