How to draw TWILIGHT

Zentangle pattern: Twilight. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. 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.Twilight is an easy, interesting tangle from NY CZT Jody Genovese and it’s her 5th tangle on the site.

When I first saw Jody’s examples I thought, “Carole Ohl’s Tuftid meets Footlites!” But Jody takes Twilight in all different directions …

Jody writes,

I have several journals and pick different ones to play with depending on what I am doing. Some are for practice only and some for ‘finished’ work. Sometimes things just appear in the practice journals that seem like they may make good tangles.

This one is interesting because depending on the base shape you start with and the shading you get really interesting results.

It can fit into any space as well I think.

As Jody notes, you can use any base shape for Twilight. I used an octagon as the starting point for my example and I love how an unusual star emerged by the end.

Jody illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Twilight below and in six cool tiles she demonstrates her point about how it looks great using all different shapes as the starting point. She also includes suggestions for filling the center if you so choose.

    Congratulations Jody for a terrific pattern! Love all the auras. It’s a doubly special day as I had no idea that you shared a birthday with Maria! Happy Birthday to both of you!!

  • Jutta Gladnigg

    All the great tanglers seem to have been born on this day… Happy birthday, Jody and congratulations to your beautiful new pattern on tanglepatterns.com!

  • Dessie Arnold

    Thank you for this, Jody! This looks interesting and unusual – I know I’m going to love it!

  • I will be using this soon. I like it very much.

  • Very special and original, I do like this new tangle very much!

  • I love this, Jody! Seldom, anymore, do I see patterns that light my creative fire and lead me to my studio – right now – to explore them. Twilight is a refreshing exception! It’s got so many of my favorite characteristics: simple & zenful to draw, invites variation, dramatic, versatile. Thank you for sharing it with all of us! 🙂

  • Lee K

    This is a really nice Tangle Jody. Very interesting to look at, and I love all of your examples. I’m really looking forward to trying it out.
    Thank you for sharing such a great gift on your birthday!

  • Sue Zanker

    Once again Jody you have “hit the spot” with a tangle I cant wait to try! Thanks Jody and thanks Linda!
    Unfortunately I can’t try anything until at least tomorrow….it is my man’s 81st Birthday today (16th) so we are having a dinner party here tonight with two old and dear friends to join us, so, as they say here in Australia, “I am flat out like a lizard drinking” and if you have ever seen that happen, then you know How busy I will be all day cooking and preparing goodies!

  • Susan Mann

    I really like this pattern! In practicing it, I find that if I make the longest line for each point first, I can fill in the shortest lines so they connect with the longest line for the adjacent point. It will look good on a black tile, I’ll bet! Thank you!

  • Bunny Wright

    Just tried this pattern out and I LOVE it. Sweet and simple to do, thanks, Jody!

  • Susan Theron

    I LOVE this! Will certainly use it often. Thanks, Jody!

  • Nancy Pearson

    Jody. I love Twilight! The second I saw it it spoke to me. Can’t wait for dinner and dishes to be done so I can play wth this. Every variation is so interesting. Thank you so much. Nancy. Thank you Linda. I love your variation too.

  • Joan

    I just played around with this tangle and really enjoy it. This goes on my list of ‘go-to’s”. Thank you Jody for sharing and thank you Linda for posting!

  • Looks like fun. will have to be a play shortly.
