How to draw INTERLUDE

Zentangle pattern: Interlude. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only.

Interlude is today’s pretty tangle and it’s from Ohio tangler Patricia Cosiano who’s also shared her LTD tangle with us.

Patricia writes,

This pattern starts with curved lines that do not touch one another. They look like parentheses.

When I looked up parentheses on Google, one of the definitions was ‘the curved lines around an explanation or interlude of a sentence.’

I decided that Interlude was the perfect name for a very easy, very pretty pattern.

It can be used as a border–but multiple rows or multiple auras can be used to fill in a larger spaces.

Interlude is the perfect name for today, an interlude of national celebrations!

Interlude is composed of basic curved parentheses but it’s worth experimenting with other shapes of “brackets” too for an interesting variation. In my larger version I added a touch weight to the tips of each. Interlude can be one of those “mac and cheese” tangles when you need something lacy and light for your Zentangle® tile.

Here Patricia illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Interlude and features it in a pretty tile with some orbs resting in the intersections of Interlude.

    I’m looking forward to experimenting with Interlude – It has lots of possibilities for variations – should be fun! Thanks, Patricia!

  • Beryl Prusinoski

    What a special Independence Day tangle. It looks like a chain taken apart and used to construct something beautiful. A metaphor for our country? Thanks, Trish!

  • Patricia Cosiano

    Thanks, Judy O! And thanks, Beryl! Great description. Thanks Linda for all you do for our tangling community! Always look forward to your e-mails, especially today! Happy Fourth of July everyone!

  • Melena

    A wonderful tangle Patricia. Very easy but also has lots of possibilities. Can make it plain or very ornate. Thank you for sharing this one with us. And I’m sending special greetings to LTD (Lucy the Dog). 😀

    • Patricia Cosiano

      Thanks, Melena! You will be happy to know that LTD (Lucy the Dog) was adopted last week. She has a new home with two lovely, caring, kind people who are totally smitten with her! I was sad to see her go, but I know she will have a great life with her new family.

      Enjoy the pattern!

      • Melena

        Patricia, I’m so glad some wonderful people have taken Lucy The Dog into their home. It’s so satisfying. I know you’ll miss her, but this is truly what LTD was needing – a forever home.

        And I love the patterns you have shared with us. This Interlude will be great for all kinds of places on my tiles. 😀

  • Thanks, that will be a great one to play with.

  • Patricia Cosiano

    Thank you Sue! I’m glad you like the pattern–it is definitely a fun one–and very easy!
