How to draw BEP

Zentangle pattern: Bep. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Today we’ve got another new tangle from West Virginia tangler Beth Snoderly, her first of 2016, named Bep.

This is Beth’s 25th tangle in our collection and she’s also contributed quite a few strings as well.

She writes,

Bep is a very special tangle to me. It came from a divider between booths in a Red Lobster.

My Dad took me to my first Red Lobster. I remember him being so excited that day that I too liked seafood. Finally, someone for him to justify having seafood for dinner. Mom hated anything seafood. =)  

Bep is my Dad’s nickname for me. So I decided to name it in his honor.

Bep is an easy grid-based tangle with so many possible variations for fills and shading. For my example I used the variation in the upper right corner of Beth’s Step 6 below and added a little graphite fill.

Beth illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Bep below and in her finished example monotangle tile she shows several ways to vary her tangle .

    Hi Beth! I always love to hear where people draw their inspiration. I have gotten strange looks as I pull out my phone to take a picture of a pillow or design on some article of clothing. What I love about this design is what happens to the pattern when you curve the surface.
    I was born in Wheeling, West Virginia so we have that in common. I am looking forward to going back next month for a wedding. I can count on dancing to the traditional John Denver song. “West Virginia.”

    Hi Beth. Thank you for sharing both your tangle and your story! I live just outside of Vancouver, BC, Canada, in Maple Ridge, and we don’t have Red Lobster here but in Alberta they do! I’m going there on Saturday for a couple of weeks and hope to visit a Red Lobster again. Maybe I’ll see what inspired you there.

    Hi Beth, I am very new to drawing tangle patterns and I was very intrigued when I came across this tangle called BEP as it is also my husbands nickname given to him by his Italian parents. I look forward to trying this tangle. I am loving this new passtime and look forward to discovering more of your tangles. Thank you!

  • Great tangle Beth and so many variations… Can’t wait to start playing!
