How to draw EUCA

Zentangle pattern: Euca. Image © Linda Farmer and 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.The delicate and lovely Euca is a tangle pattern from Australian Anne Marks, and it’s her second on TanglePatterns. (Bwiya was the first.)

Anne explains how Euca came about, “We had some Chinese ladies to visit, and I made them a bookmark each. In the process, I created some designs from the eucalyptus tree and its flower. We have a festival each year named after the flower.. Ficafolia Festival. Our main street is lined with them either side. They look glorious when in bloom.”

Anne shares these two photos of gorgeous Ficafolia (eucalyptus) blooms.

    Lovely ! Of course I’d support anything Aussie. Seriously, it is beautiful, and has inspired me to design an all Australian tangleism. We have a wealth of subjects here that would be perfect for this art form. Thanks Anne, now what is next from you. Peggie Schurch Melb.

  • Hi Aussies,
    ta for great comments. Im trying to link up with other aussies, esp. in Victoria, we can keep up tp date with whats going on and maybe get a CZT to do aworkshop for us. Not all of us can afford to fly to USA. There are some CZT’s in Tassie. So I would love to hear from you.

    Hi Anne, I would love to get together with other vic., zentanglers. I haven’t had much luck in even getting a reply to my emails, would love to further conversation with you though. I can afford to go to the U.S.A. but have a health problem which does not enable me to fly. And how did you get to know about the zentangles in the first place? Cheers Peggie
