TanglePatterns STRING GUIDE now available

TanglePatterns STRINGS GUIDE Volume 1 (Strings 1-50)For those of you who’ve written to ask if there’s a PDF of the site’s Strings available, there is now!

I’ve compiled all 50 strings into a handy reference – the TanglePatterns STRING GUIDE, Volume 1 (Strings 1-50) – and it’s available for $6 from the STORE > EBOOKS page.

The 21-page PDF describes the importance of Strings in the Zentangle® method and contains the first 50 strings from the site’s resource in a convenient printable document.

The strings are given in two formats to jump-start your Zentangle creativity: two pages contain “at-a-glance” size images of all 50 strings, followed by full-size traceable images. Additional string suggestions by several CZTs are also included.

Sure you can download the strings from the site but this saves you time and as always your purchase helps keep TanglePatterns going and growing.

Thanks, and Enjoy!

    Hi Linda,
    Like so many people before me, I would like to thank you for such a wonderful site. It’s insightful, informative, interesting but above all a fun sight.

    The reason I am writing to you is to let you know that I received a fabulously wonderful book last week. It’s titled ‘The Art of Zentangle’. It’s a collection of ’50 inspiring drawings, designs & ideas for the meditative artist’. It has input from several well respected artist, each of whom guide you through a particular aspect of tangling.

    Apart from the information they each provide, there are areas for you to practice & various projects for you to complete. I have found it to be one of the best books I have purchased, & I have purchased quite a few on Tangling.

    I would highly recommend this book to others & I’m sure they will agree with me.

    Thanks again for all your great efforts.

    Great minds think alike! Thank you! I have been trying to figure out how to do just this with the downloaded images, but I can’t get the sizing right. I’m getting this as soon as I can get another disposable credit card refill — Thanks for the great site! Keep up the great work.

  • DianneT

    Like Karen Balch, I have the same trouble getting the images all the same size, it is a right royal pain in the proverbial you know what.
    I have wasted sooo much ink and paper trying to get the collection together, all neat and tidy and I agree that this little price is a bargain for us, err dare I say, useless pc-ers.lol
    Thank you for all the organizing.
