Zenspirations Dangle Designs

Zenspirations Dangle DesignsSo many of us fell in love with Joanne Fink’s Zenspirations – Letters and Patterning techniques and watching her videos demonstrating them.

Well now you can enjoy even more of her whimsical drawing ideas in her new title, Zenspirations Dangle Designs, available now and shipping from Amazon. Joanne’s first book contained one dangle design and now this new title expands on the theme, explaining in detail how to draw dangles.

From the publisher Design Originals, “Zenspirations Dangle Designs are unique patterns that add interest and texture to any design. Gifted calligrapher and designer Joanne Fink share her fun and relaxing techniques for adding dangle patterns to your drawings.

Joanne demystifies the patterning process and shows how simple it is to create richly textures dangles by breaking down the design into component parts. Use dangles to decorate scrapbook pages, album covers, wall décor and more.”

Zenspirations Dangle Designs is a 16-page booklet retailing at $8.99, available on Amazon for $6.67.

Joanne reviews basic materials required, then continues with each term introduced and  explained with an illustration and/or step-by-step construction. Project ideas include a “Delightful Dangle Clock” and a “Jeweled Dangle Archway”.

Contents include:

  • Dangles Demystified- anatomy of a dangle including the four main components (rods, pins, strings, elements) and eight secondary components and enhancements (finials, patterns, cuffs, bands, toppers, “socks”, embellishments, columns)
  • Dangling in the Round – creating a circular dangle
  • Dangle Adornment – construction of a sock dangle
  • Creative Columns – the basics in dangle columns
  • Dressed to Impress – incorporating dangles into your drawings
  • Write me a Dangle – monogram dangles
  • Dangle Projects – using dangles to craft and decorate

Zenspirations Dangle Designs isn’t Zentangle and it’s a small booklet at 16 pages but it’s got lots of bang for your buck. I know you’ll enjoy Joanne’s latest addition to expanding your creative drawing techniques.
