How to draw TRINGLE

Zentangle pattern: Tringle. 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.Today’s Tringle tangle is a tangleation (how’s that for alliteration?!) of the official tangle Munchin and it’s from CZT® Lara Williams. Lara’s previous tangles on the site are Sparkool, LinQ and Ojo.

I have been seeing a lot of triangle and geometric shapes in art in magazines, in books and online. I was really intrigued by how I could turn this into a new tangle and just started playing with it,” she writes.

Tingle is very flexible, you can use it to fill in any shape section of your Zentangle®. Instead of the pencil fills Laura uses in her examples, I used a Munchin-inspired variation in my example here.

I find this type of tangle where you add alternating and random fills – Cracked and Neuron are more examples – are very soothing to draw. As I wrote about Neuron, “The Zen in this tangle comes in allowing your intuition to guide you in placing the fills (solid or otherwise)”.

Lara illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Tringle here on her blog with three cool Zentangle tiles using her tangle.

    Hi, I started doing zentangle about 2 months ago and really love it. I’ve done over 40 zentangles so far. I framed them with 20 in each. They look lovely. My problem is, I want to keep doing them but I don’t know what to do with them. Could someone please give me some suggestions.
    Thanks, Joyce Tucker

      Hi Joyce, have you seen the page TIPS & TOOLS > ZENTANGLE STORAGE IDEAS ? There are additional ideas in the comments there that might inspire you too.

        Hello Linda.
        Thank you so much for the fast reply. I will take advantage of the site you sent me too. Thanks again, Joyce Tucker

    Joyce, I started Tangling about a month ago and was wondering the same thing. Then I thought why not start working in Christmas gifts. Some of my tangles will be for the fridge. A small magnetic strip works great and doesn’t cover up the name and date on the back. Another thought: group several together, photograph them and make a calendar! Happy Tangling!!
