Zentangle® Project Pack #10 Summary – The Legend of Zentangle

Zentangle® Project Pack #10 – The Legend of Zentangle“Zentangle Project Packs are a curated collection of supplies that pair up with an online video tutorial, or series of tutorials, all on the same theme.

These packs are numbered and made available for purchase prior to the release of each video in the series. Enjoy the Zentangle tools and tiles as you tangle along with Rick, Maria and others from Zentangle HQ.”

Here is the introduction to Zentangle’s Project Pack #10 from Zentangle HQ:

As we celebrate No.10 in our Zentangle Project Pack series, we bring to you a collection of tutorials that highlight some of the people, the stories, the tangles, the techniques and of course, the magic that make up the “legend” of Zentangle.

Join us as we take you on an imaginative ride, guiding you through creating your own personal legend one tangle at a time.

This series is also different from previous Project Packs in that “each of the lessons in this series builds off of each other and we suggest watching the Zentangle Project Pack No. 10 videos in order, beginning with the introduction.”

SUPPLIES: This Project Pack is available here ($30.95) in the store. This pack features a very special booklet custom designed by the team at Zentangle HQ especially for this purpose, it’s not something you will find in your own supplies.

Some specifics: Similar to the mini-journal of Project Pack #06, this printed Project Pack mini-journal/booklet is 5.5 inches (14 cm) wide by 5.5 inches (14 cm) tall. It is made of a sewn-bound signature composed of 6 sheets of a smooth card stock (for a total of 24 pages). The booklet’s cover is a linen-textured heavyweight card in a Renaissance Tan color with an embossed logo. It’s another sweet surprise!

You can improvise, “get creative with your own supplies”, but I highly recommend you get this Project Pack because the booklet will become a useful and beautiful personal keepsake.

In addition to the special PP#10 item, you will also receive:

  • Sakura Micron 01 pens: (1) Black, (1) Brown
  • Icosahedron die
  • graphite Zentangle pencil
  • tortillion
  • basic white Zentangle tiles

Each spread in the Legend booklet has 20 spaces so it can be used with the icosahedron die included in the supplies kit to randomly choose tangles.

The following chronology is a summary of the videos for this Project Pack with links to the individual videos. Either click the Day #’s title link or the image itself to view the full video on YouTube.

“Each of the lessons in this series builds off of each other and we suggest watching the Zentangle Project Pack No. 10 videos in order, beginning with the introduction.”

Day 1 – Introduction

In Day 1’s introductory video (05:42) – Rick & Maria introduce the special components of this Project Pack and explain the purpose of the series:

This Zentangle Project Pack focuses on the legend of the Zentangle Legend. Its goal is to inspire you to create your own Legend . . . with all which that metaphor can imply.

Day 1 – L5 – The Original Legend

In Day 1’s video (55:18) – With Rick keeping her company Maria starts the project out by recreating the tangles from the original L5 Legend included in the Official Kit.

  • Linda Dochter

    WOW, Linda. This blog entry (if it can even be called that) is over the top. Thank you once again for your attention to completeness, accuracy and usefulness.

  • Very nice summary of the project pack and also a nice directory/index of what is included! Thanks so much for such detailed work.

  • Linda Dochter

    Sorry, I just saw something and feel that I have to comment again on this post. I know a tangle isn’t drawn with the intent to look like “a thing” but sometimes “a thing” appears anyhow.

    Whoever would have thought that Mooka could be drawn and shaded to become a border of flamingos? (Day 6) I think it’s most apparent in the example on the left.

    Thank you for letting me share. 🙂

    • Lisa D

      I’ve noticed that there are more and more patterns that are *intended* to look like something, like today’s (January 8, 2021), which is flowers. For some reason, it bugs me that people are doing that instead of sticking to Maria and Rick’s original guidelines. I know there are no Tangle Police, but it seems to go against the spirit of Zentangle. Or maybe I’m taking it too seriously and should just enjoy the creativity that people are sharing. LOL

      • Linda Farmer, CZT

        Hi Lisa, I think your last sentence is the perfect conclusion/decision. I do try to keep the flowers to a minimum but sometimes they’re just what we all need especially if they’re abstract enough not to be a “drawing of some thing”. I’m confused though because there was no tangle post today – I announced the release of the new TANGLE GUIDE, 2021 Edition – so we have no idea which you’re tangle referring to?

  • Jenn Brayton

    This is an incredible amount of work, Linda, and thank you so very much for the time and energy creating this detailed post! It’s everything I need in one tidy place, and I often take breaks from PP10 to do tiles using the tangles here 🙂 Massive applause!!

  • Lianne

    Thank you Linda again for putting together an awesome summary of this project pack. All your hard work is truelyappreciated.

  • Louise

    Merci beaucoup je suis québécoise et en traduisant avec français j’ai compris bien des choses.votre résumé est formidable..merci beaucoup..

  • Melena

    Wow Linda, this is great. So far I haven’t had much time to work on this project. That’s probably because I haven’t been able to afford the Project Pack 10. I’ve always made whatever materials I’ve needed that’s drawn, but this one would take a long time just to make it. Thank you for recommending so highly to get this set. I will see what I can do. I might have some cash stashed away that I can use. Hmmmmmm.

    Thank you for all your hard work Linda. You are very appreciated by all of us. Stay safe, stay well.

  • Val Eldridge

    Thank you Linda for your marvellous ‘weekly tangle roundup’.
    I am new to ‘tangling’ only having been doing it a few months and have to say it had been my ‘lifesaver’ . I live in England and during our ‘lockdown’ and the recent difficult times, drawing ‘one line at a time’ has kept me sane and even (amazingly) calm.
    I always wake up early on a Sunday morning, as I’m so excited to open my email from you. Each week’s summary seems to get better and better (perhaps as I’m getting more experienced in tangling) but today’s summary has surpassed all others.
    I have loved watching the Project 10 videos in the last couple of weeks and to have the detailed list as to where everything is with exact times is wonderful.
    So, thank you so much again for all your input and hard work. Keep safe and stay well

  • Lucinda Mathews

    Thank you so much Linda for doing all this detailed work! I’ve been trying to learn how to do “the basic 20” and some of them were so hard to find – until now!
    Just wonderful to have this as a resource! Thank you thank you thank you!

  • Hellen Hurkens-Moll

    I have to say, this is the one Project Pack you really must order! So far I think it is the best Project Pack! Trust me, they are all good but 10 is a special one and the booklet is a nice reference-work.
    As is the book Zentangle Primer Vol 1 for all the fragments etc.!
    But, thank you Linda, for all your efforts on this site!
