How to draw ZANDER

Zentangle pattern: Zander. 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.Zander is one of the earliest of “official” tangle patterns, a Zentangle®-original.

The steps for Zander are included on pages 26-27 of the Beginning Zentangle booklet included in the Official Zentangle Kit, but this is the first time Zentangle HQ made a lesson public and published it online in video form.

As part of the 2018 “Twelve Days of Zentangle” series, several of these “old” tangles that haven’t been publicly published before are being included in the series. Naturally I’m adding each of them to TanglePatterns, thus a heads up that there will be a few more tangles coming your way than usual.

In this Day 1 video starting at 13:45 Maria’s daughter and CZT Martha Huggins (yes, that Huggins) demonstrates how to tangle Zander.

Martha points out that Zander makes a great border or ribbon-style tangle and she notes that “a very light touch helps you get those lines even closer together.” Good tip.

NOTE: For future reference, the video segment for the other tangles included in the “Twelve Days of Zentangle” series can be located on the tangle’s page on TanglePatterns. (I am updating them each day.)

Day 1 tangles included: Jetties, Flux, Zander, and Well.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours. Your thanks helps motivate them to continue to share!

Look what I found at Trader Joe’s!

This sweet little canister of Stroopwafel cookies has (had!) 8 cookies for $3. When I got the Trader Joe flyer in the mail the other day and saw Stroopwafels on their list, I was practically out the door before you could say Dutch Caramel Waffle Cookies.

Oh so yummy when the steamy heat from the coffee (French Press, the best!) melts the thin layer of caramel between the wafers. If you missed Stroopwafels when they first appeared on the site, visit Dutch CZT Anoeska Waardenburg’s Pip-in. I have her tangle to thank for finding out about Stroopwafels, a specialty of the town of Gouda.

And yes, I bought more than one tin. 🙂
