How to draw GIRLANDE

Zentangle pattern: GirlandeHere’s a very pretty tangle pattern for you, and it’s easy too. The lovely Girlande, is another pattern from Germany’s Simone Bischoff. Translation? In English, “girlande” is quite simply “garland”. And quite suitable for this tangle, don’t you think?

Girlande makes a very tasty tangle to use along a string or as a border. I added a touch of shading just below the black pearls/orbs to give it a bit of dimension. My blender (tortillion) is so full of graphite that I don’t even need to use a pencil on this type of shading. Simple and fun.

Simone illustrates the steps for drawing Girlande here on her blog.

Check out the tag simoneb for more of Simone’s patterns on TanglePatterns.com.

Cool Computer Tip

I’ve recently upgraded to a new (Windows) computer and everything on the internet was looking really teeny tiny on the new monitor (do they even call them that any more?). I discovered the coolest thing, you may already know it but I’m going to share it anyway.

If you hold down the Ctrl key and roll your mouse scroll button, you can increase/decrease the size of the webpage (and documents) on your screen! How great is that.

I can see! I can see! I can see! :-)

    Dear Linda, I can see, too! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

  • What a beautiful tangle!!! Oh my…..I can see too:) Thanks for the tip!

  • Susannah Ayres-Thomas

    That is simply lovely! I left a comment on Ms Bischoff’s website (in google translated German–I hope it didn’t mangle it too badly!), and then looked through her gallery of Zentangles. Some are just breathtaking! If you have not taken a look at them, please do. The dimensionality of her work is outstanding; some of them seem to pop right off the page. Just beautiful work.

  • What a fun tangle! Can’t wait to play with it. And thanks for the great tip! Very helpful for my large screen!

  • Kathryn

    YEAH! I discovered it by accident when I got my newest computer – Christmas time. I told everyone on my e-mail list too – I was so excited.

    thanks for sharing the tangles and how to draw them. I’m enjoying this so much! :-)

  • Joyce Blodgett

    Lovely pattern. And thanks for that tip, Linda; what a difference it makes!

  • Great tangle! And thanks for the viewing tip. I didn’t know that and just checked it out. I, too, now can see!!! Thanks!!

  • Girlande is a great tangle. Thanks for the great tip on how to increase/decrease the font. Who would have thunk it!

  • Debbie

    Love this tangle!! Can’t wait to try it!!
    As a side note for the computer tip…
    You can also press Ctrl and the + sign to enlarge or Ctrl and the – sign to decrease…and to get back to normal page size Ctrl and 0 (number zero)
    ok gotta jet and go try this tangle out!! Have a cool but awesome day!

  • Cherie Hartwick

    Love the tangle. I tend to use a lot of the organic, flowery looking tangles. I tried the mouse tip and was delightfully surprised. Isn’t it wonderful that we can still learn something new, almost every day.

  • DianneT in aus

    thank you, thank you for this amazing simple and effective tip.
    I too can now see instead of just clicking on the x button

    I like the new tangle, it will be a good border or string. And I really appreciate the tip about enlarging the print, thank you so much.
