How to draw HURRAY!

Zentangle pattern: Hurray!Hurray! It’s Friday, the weekend’s here and it’s the last day of February! All excellent reasons to cheer and here’s a tangle to express it.

Hurray! is her first tangle pattern on the site from Swedish tangler Agneta Landegren from Huddinge, which is just south of Stockholm.

Agneta created Hurray!when my husband was challenging me to make some tangles of my own“.

Hurray! begins with a dot grid and is a nice airy tangle to fill up a section. Although it is equally pretty without it, the shading Agneta adds in Step 5 creates a nice layer of dimension to the tangle.

Just to remind everyone that Zentangles and tangles can be viewed from any side — there’s no “right side up” — I’ve rotated my example from Agneta’s illustration. Actually, this is the way I drew it too. Very often I find it easier to draw tangles upside down or sideways from the way the steps demonstrate. Just as we turn our tiles to make it more comfortable to tangle. If you find any tangle a particular challenge, try turning things around and see it it helps.

“I’m a (soon to be retired) Swedish teacher who came across the Zentangle method last September (2013) when I and my colleagues were looking for exercises for fine motor skills to our first grade pupils. When I was searching the internet for examples I found your site and I fell for it immediately. I love all the lovely tangles that look so complicated, but when I follow the steps I surprise myself by being able to do it myself! (At least, most of them.) And the amount of tangles appeals to me and my desire to collect things… I just have to try all the tangles I see and collect them in my notebooks. So now I’m drawing Zentangles as soon as I have the opportunity, it’s a wonderful inspiring and relaxing hobby!”

Here Agneta demonstrates the steps for drawing Hurray! and she includes a completed Zentangle® using String 008. The other tangles in her tile are Boomerangs, Ticking, Hi-Cs, and the official tangle Hurry.

    Sharon Wrench – What a fun Tangle! I have been so busy that I missed this Tangle. Your husband reminds me of my dad. He was always telling me to create my own things. Maybe that is why I love this Tangle. Thank you so much for sharing.

  • Sarah Christian

    New to Zentangle, I am totally enjoying and learning from your news letter! Thank you.
