I’ve added a new page to the BOOK REVIEWS tab on the top menu bar for the brand new Zentangle PRIMER Vol 1 where I take a look at the contents in more detail. Cutting to the chase: awesome! Detailed. Encouraging. Inspiring. Worth every penny. You need this book!

D’rua is another great continuous line tangle from Taiwan CZT Mei Hua Teng, or Damy as she likes to be called.

Zentangle pattern: Antidots

Antidots, by CZT Anita Roby-Lavery

At first glance D’rua looks similar in a way to CZT Anita Roby-Lavery’s Antidots so I put it to one side. But I got to thinking about it and after practicing it a few times have come to appreciate the subtle differences in how it grows organically. I’m sure you’ll enjoy playing with both of these easy, pretty tangles.

Both tangles were inspired by free-motion quilting.

Damy illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing D’rua below.
