How to draw POZER

Zentangle pattern: Pozer. 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.Pozer is a lovely organic tangle pattern from West Virginia’s Beth Snoderly, and it couldn’t be easier to draw. Pozer is a perfectly pretty Monday tangle.

Today is a holiday celebrated both in the USA (Columbus Day) and in Canada (Thanksgiving), and it’s also the first day of CZT XII training in Providence RI. By the end of the week a whole new “batch” of eager and excited CZTs will be launched across the planet and we welcome them all! Spreading the virus of Zentangle® love 🙂 And as one of my favorite artists, Canadian poet-singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen croons in his own inimitable voice, “there ain’t no cure for love.”

And now, back to Pozer which simply “starts with a swirlie and then add on three ‘petals’ at a time,” explains Beth.

Poser is a very useful fill pattern, you just keep going and going until your section is done. And it can be quite hypnotic to draw. If you start the center swirlie close to a finished motif, you achieve a layered “behind” look.

You can shade this in different ways too. In my example I just used a touch in the center of each to give a bit of depth, but if you fancy shading each “petal” that’s another way to go too. I predict Pozer will become very popular.

Here are Beth’s step-by-step instructions for drawing Pozer and a completed monotangle featuring her tangle.

    This one looks so pretty. Reminds me of roses, yet it’s so simple to draw. Thanks, Beth, for sharing it; thanks Linda for adding it to the collection.

    Zentangle are so uniquely beautiful. They caught my eye immediately. I’m a special education Paraprofessional and although, I’m not aCZT, I asked the teacher I work with if I could give a lesson to our students because of the repeated patterns, for Fun Fridays. The shape they used was the first letter of they names. We all had fun.

    Ah, sugar! I’ve been drawing these flowers since I was a kid, thinking everyone drew like this; I could have had me an original tangle pattern, LOL. I still draw my flowers this way, but with a slightly larger starting spiral–why change a perfectly good method when it works 🙂

  • Cookie

    This is such a darling pattern. I love flowers at it is. This tangle pattern will make a cute all-over print pattern on fabric.

  • Sissee

    Those roses should pose for this tangle. Very pretty shaded, and great written hints and step=by-step. Thanks and Happy Holidays.

  • Beth this is delightful, thanks for sharing. xxx

  • Wendy Causer

    This is adorable, will be using today

  • Theresa Smith

    What a lovely tangle! I’ve always loved posies but have not included too many flowers in my Mac-n-Chesse. This one you’ve made simple to draw and makes a great focus or background, A new Mac-n-Cheese for me to go to many, many times! Thanks for lunch!

  • Deborah Davis

    Beth, This is a very dainty, beautiful tangle. I can use it to fill in fields as well as standalone. Thank you so much.

  • Ann Stapleton
