How to draw FLOVINE

Zentangle pattern: FlovineThe most recent CZT class, XVII (17), had quite a few graduates from Taiwan. Lin Chiu was among them and the pretty, ribbony Flovine is her first tangle pattern on the site. There are currently 17 CZTs listed on the Zentangle® CZT Master list from Taiwan!

The folks at Zentangle HQ have recently updated their website and CZTs are responsible for adding themselves to the Master List, so give them time to get to it and your local CZT will eventually appear on the list. They’re not all tech savvy but they can teach great Zentangle classes!

About her inspiration for Flovine, Lin writes,

Flovine means ‘Flower vine’. This pattern inspiration comes from the official tangle Chainging. I was trying to find an easy way to tangle Chainging, and I accidentally found this way to tangle Flovine.

I’m a graphic designer from Taiwan. I started to learn Zentangle art from the first Chinese translation Zentangle book ‘Zentangle Untangled‘ by Kass Hall in Taiwan. I love Zentangle and I have been studying Zentangle art about one and a half years.

This month I went to CZT seminar 17 with my teacher Laura Liu and Taiwan friends, and I’m very happy to become a CZT. I’m also very happy to share my new tangle pattern with everyone.”

Lin’s Flovine also looks a bit ribbon-like and it adds a delicate element to your Zentangles. Step 4 benefits from Rick’s “take off and land” technique where you retrace a little bit of a previous stroke (take off) and land on your target destination. This makes the shape of the final result a little smoother.

Lin illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Flovine below and features it in several pretty Zentangles with variations to experiment with.
