How to draw TWENTY-ONE

Zentangle pattern: Twenty-One. 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.The Netherlands has many very enthusiastic tanglers, and Holland’s Mariët Lustenhouwer is one of its earliest Zentangle® adopters. Mariët discovered Zentangle in 2009 and has been tangling ever since.

Mariët now has several tangle patterns here on the site. The lovely Twenty-One is another of her tangles, discovered when she was just “playing around with patterns” on December 21st and thus the name of this one.

Twenty-One starts out with opposing wavy lines creating an Ogee type of grid, like last week’s Lantern-Pho. A little challenging, but very doable with patience and taking it one stroke at a time.

Mariët illustrates the steps for drawing Twenty-One here on her blog and features it in a delicate Zentangle-inspired piece. Click on the images to get larger, downloadable versions.

    Whoa! Nice tangle, and I will need to practice quite a bit on this one! Great challenge!

  • Kristi Hubbard

    If you add two little circles at the top of each ogee you get TRILOBITES!

  • Murlene Reik

    Hi! I am new at doing tangles and I have a question. Do you need to do it in a quiet (no people) place in order to have the calm, relaxed feeling you’re reaching for? Thanks, Murlene

      Best atmosphere for Tangling? ANYWHERE – I find I get the best benefit in the busiest places. Having just returned from 6 weeks away to visit our family in USA I did tangles on the plane, in the airport waiting, at our son’s home while others were busy doing other things. I always keep a tiny blank pad in my handbag for the times when I am waiting for an appointment or just waiting for anything. It takes away all the tension and takes you immediately into a state of BEING. Thank you Linda for all the connections you create – Beverley Carter – Adelaide, South Australia

    I really like this one. It reminds me of roses when shaded. Very lovely.

  • Barbara

    Personally, Yes, I like quiet. The only music for listening is classical, softly in the background.
