Tangle Refresher 94

Tangle Refresher!You’ll please excuse me if I don’t have much of an introduction to this week’s Refresher.

I’ve been burning the midnight oil the last two weeks preparing the 2015 Edition of my TANGLE GUIDE, and “as we speak” I am catching up on some long overdue zzzzzzzzz’s … Have a beautiful weekend and we’ll see ya back here on Monday. Enjoy the Refresher tangles and the “More Good Stuff” that follows …

The Tangle Refresher series, aka Buried Treasure, spotlights hidden tangle gems from the past. It can remind you of tangles you might not have used for a while or introduce you to some you haven’t come across yet.

Here are five more tangle pattern gems and a Tangle Refresher from a year (or two) ago for your tangling pleasure. Remember to check out the “More Good Stuff” links below too. Zenful tangling!

BTW as you visit these tangles please leave a comment and Tweet or “like” them on Facebook so they get shared with a wider audience. Sharing links are on the left side of each pattern’s page. Thanks!

    Hello, Linda, and thank you for having this website for us to follow and learn more about Zentangle! Yesterday I used Annette Grewe’s tangle, “WOCAR”in my tangle for the day. By itself, alongside “Molygon”, I wondered about it, since it is so solid and rectangular, but then I continued to tangle, employing Jonquar, Yincut, a tangleation of Vega and Hybred, and after turning the tile to see it in different angles, I discovered that WOCAR is indeed, a very good new look for my tangles! On it’s side, Wocar looks like a doorway!
