Coming to you soon: a free PDF of all TanglePatterns patterns!

NOTE – This page is from December 2011 and the offer of a free PDF is no longer available. However the latest edition of my TANGLE GUIDE can be purchased on the STORE > EBOOKS page and downloaded instantly.

Happy New Year! I am so delighted to tell you that soon I will be emailing a FREE PDF of all the patterns on TanglePatterns to everyone who has financially supported the site as described on the “Support TanglePatterns” page.

I’ve been trying to think of a way to thank you for your response to my recent request for support. Once upon a time I was working on a book titled The Tangle Pattern Pocket Guide, but arrangements with the publisher fell through and somehow my gut wasn’t into pursuing it further. So this is what I’ve come up with. And it’s a green project!

I’m creating a PDF, the TANGLE GUIDE, 2012 Edition containing all the patterns on the site. It’s a FREE e-book for everyone who has financially supported the site as described on “Support TanglePatterns” page. When I’m ready to send it out in the next couple of weeks, I’ll notify you in an upcoming post so you can watch your inbox for it.

Thanks again for all your wonderful comments and emails and cards and letters. You’re a great crew.

Have a safe and joyous celebration this evening, and I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Happy New Year! Wishing all a joyful new year, members of the Cassini-Huygens team offer us their views of Saturn and the Cassini spacecraft.

    I just got my PDF. As a creative abstract artist I needed some inspiration. When I came across your website it was amazing. Seeing the types of art I’ve been doing for years and seeing that it actually has a name other than doodles or abstract
    The PDF is wonderful. LOVE that I can click and it takes me to “How to”. I’m excited about doing some new, learning something new and being recharged!! Thank you
    Just and idea or thought. I wish the little icon/square examples were larger on the site. I’ve been dragging them to the desk top to enlarge. However, now I have the PDF. But for others visiting it may be helpful.

    Yours in creative freedom! Sharon in Simi Valley, California

      Hi Sharon, and welcome to Zentangle. The images on the site and in my TANGLE GUIDE are the actual size I draw them – Zentangle is done on a small scale! 🙂 Thanks for your compliments on my TANGLE GUIDE, most appreciated. BTW – here’s a Windows tip – try holding down the CTRL key while you scroll your mouse wheel.
