How to draw LAND GIRLZ

Zentangle Pattern: Land GirlzBefore we get started today I’d like first to wish all our Canadian friends and rellies a wonderful Happy Canada Day for tomorrow, July 1st. Here in the US our long weekend begins on Friday with our July 4th Independence Day celebrations.

So I have a feeling that many many tanglers far and wide are on vacation this week and celebrating their respective national heritage and holidays. Family, friends, beaches, barbeques, festivals, parades, concerts, air shows, fireworks — what could be better? Have a safe and happy time everyone! …

Happy Canda Day!

A couple of weeks ago when we added Stitch to our library, I mentioned that Karry Heun would be providing steps for the tangle she used in the upper left corner of her Zentangle example featuring Stitch. When I saw that pattern I knew I’d get requests for steps, and I wasn’t mistaken. So …

Today Karry is back with the steps for Land Girlz, a great 3D-looking tangle pattern that will exercise your aura-drawing line control skills.

It’s called Land Girlz, because I saw the pattern on a chair in that tv show.

For those who aren’t familiar,

“Land Girls is a British television period drama series … commissioned by the BBC to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II. … Land Girls was filmed in and around the city of Birmingham. The first series features … four different girls doing their bit for Britain in the Women’s Land Army during the War.”

Here are Karry’s step-by-step instructions for drawing Land Girlz. As Karry points out, it really helps to start at the top with the first line of squares then work your way down instead of drawing all the squares in the section first. This one requires your concentration, deliberate strokes, and gains a very cool 3D effect once you add shading.

    I love the Land Girlz Tangle pattern. It looks 3-dimensional. I have started tangling recently sand love it. In India, we create similar designs, which is called Rangoli. Some are easy and some intricate. I incorporate Indian patterns in my Zentangle. Thank you for sharing your pattern.
