Tangle Refresher 123 – And revisiting your own Zentangle® history

Tangle Refresher!

“Every other week when it’s time to put together another Refresher, I get so much enjoyment out of looking back to see what was new a year ago. With lovely new tangles being added all the time, it’s easy for their predecessors to get lost in the shuffle.

Do you ever go back and admire your early Zentangle® efforts?

It’s a fun and interesting thing to do because not only will you be reminded of your artistic progress, you will also be reminded of what was going on in your life at that time.

Each beautiful tile is a record of your presence in that particular space and time, a non-verbal diary if you will.

So if you haven’t done it in a while, I urge you to get out your tiles and admire and appreciate them anew. Enjoy the pleasure you experienced with each new tangle and each new tile.

And give thanks in your own way for the wonderful gift that is Zentangle in your life.” Worth repeating, from Tangle Refresher 76.

The Tangle Refresher series, aka Buried Treasure, spotlights hidden tangle gems from the past. It can remind you of tangles you might not have used for a while or introduce you to some you haven’t come across yet.

Even if you are familiar with the tangles featured today, I encourage you to go back and revisit them again. You never know what helpful tips or techniques you might be glad to be reminded of.

Here are five more tangle pattern gems and a Tangle Refresher from a year (or two) ago for your tangling pleasure. Remember to check out the “More Good Stuff” links below too.

BTW as you enjoy these tangles please do leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity for you to enjoy. And please share a link to your favorite tangles with your followers on all your social media.

Zenful tangling!

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H
