Tanglepatterns has a new TIPS & TOOLS section

Tips, Tools, TechniquesI’ve been wanting to add a Tips & Tools section to since Day One. At long last, this week I set it up and began adding pages to it.

The drop-down menu at the top of the page under Tips & Tools contains the seeds, if you will, of what I hope will become another great resource about all things Zentangle.

So far I’ve added a page for String Ideas, and a section on Pens and More subdivided with individual pages for related tools. I’m currently working on the Paper, Journals, Sketchbooks, and Related Books sections.

Some pages are still under construction and all will be updated constantly as new tools are added and as you, Gentle Readers, add your input. Please participate. If there are topics you’d like to see added to this section, let me know. And feel free to share your tips, favorite tools, techniques, and ideas on the appropriate topic pages.

I’ve merely begun the process. I hope you will contribute and help make this new section another really great Zentangle-community resource for tips, tools, and techniques.

  • I enjoy so much your posts and adding the tips & Techniques tab is wonderful!!! Thank you for continuing the inspiration for us!!

    I wanted to say thank you for compiling the most comprehensive tangle site on the web! You have done such a great job and I just wanted to say THANKS! Also, I thought I would mention that the tool bar at the top–where the new “Tips” section is located–is probably seriously under utilized. I have never even noticed it until you pointed it out today and I spend quite a bit of time on this website. It has a wealth of information I am sure your subscribers would love to explore. A suggestion would be making the bar wider so it stands out more. Thanks again! I look forward to each and every email!

      Thanks Kristi, I appreciate your suggestion! The thought never crossed my mind that people wouldn’t notice the page menu bar. Will see what I can do.
