How to draw FLEURI

Zentangle pattern: Fleuri. 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.On Friday we revisited a couple of Valentine heart tangles and today we have flowers. Fleuri is a tangle pattern by Canadian CZT® Geneviève Crabe.

Fleuri is a grid-based tangle and drawing its “petal” strokes reminded me very much of Antidots. I did a little variation on the solid areas so my version looks quite a bit different from Geneviève’s where she fills in the background making the grid lines disappear. Nice tangle with good variations!

Yesterday in our lively discussion on how to choose tangles, fellow Zentangle® Zealots share creative ideas about that as well as tips on working with grids. Clare Marie suggested drawing the first strokes in the widest part of the section you’re working in, then space the rest of your grid lines out from there. Emily suggests curving your grid lines to fit curved shapes, giving the shape dimension.

Geneviève illustrates the steps for drawing Fleuri here.

Wishing you all a lovely Valentine’s Day!
