Tangle Refresher 36

Tangle Refresher!

I’d like to extend a warm welcome all the Zentangle® newbies who’ve been joining us lately, it’s a great pleasure to have you aboard!

If you haven’t visited these two important pages yet, please be sure to check them out because there’s information there you will want to know to better understand this art form. (Even some of you not-so-newbies might like to refresh your memory.)

  1. What’s a Zentangle? – explains what Zentangle is (and what isn’t a Zentangle), and outlines the steps of the Zentangle Method
  2. Zentangle Terminology –  everything you need to learn to “speak tanglese” (just made that up), a glossary of terms

This Tangle Refresher series usually appears every other Friday and in it I dig out “Buried Treasure” by spotlighting tangles and other great content from the site. Don’t be shy, join in the discussion on any page by adding your comments.

Tangle Refreshers can remind you of patterns you might not have used for a while or introduce you to patterns you might have missed. Here are five more tangle pattern gems and a Tangle Refresher from a year (or two) ago for your tangling pleasure. There are always links at the bottom to more buried content, so be sure to check them out too.

Happy tangling!
