Zentangle 3

Suzanne McNeill's book, Zentangle 3Suzanne McNeill (CZT®) has just released her third Zentangle® Book, Zentangle 3. And it’s a winner for Zentangle pattern collectors because there are dozens of new patterns in it.

All together the new book contains 41 tangle patterns, including the patterns Munchin, Nipa, Rain and Yincut created by Zentangle® originators Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. The remaining 37 are all new patterns by Suzanne, including a variation on Pinwheels from Zentangle 2.

The book is the same size and format as the previous two titles (Zentangle Basics and Zentangle 2), 20 pages including covers and measuring 8.5″ x 11″.

In Zentangle 3, Suzanne reviews the basics of creating a traditional Zentangle® and gives tips for shading them. The patterns follow with their step-by-step instructions and often the page has a showcase of patterns incorporated into rubber stamp outline images filled with tangle patterns from the book. There’s also a tangled pair of the moveable paper dolls Suzanne posts about on her blog, here.

Suzanne gives a great tip for creating your own index of tangles using paper tags. You’ll have to read the rest in the book!

Even if you have either of her previous books, you will certainly enjoy Zentangle 3 with all the new patterns and ideas for new items to tangle.

  • I have all 4 Zentangle Books. The first Zentangle Book I discovered was at Beverly’s Crafts in Alameda, California. It was the Zentangle 2 Book. I went home and tried the designs in this book and realized how much I liked this book. I noticed the Zentangle Website and looked them up and liked what I saw. I went on Design Original’s website and discovered they sold Zentangle and Totally Tangled and purchased those two books. I discovered there was a Zentangle 3 Book a week later and order it too, so now I have all 4 books and I love ’em all!
    When I tangle, I bounce between all 4 books or sometimes just my zentangle Bible I created from all the patterns I got from this website. Yes, I have a 2″ wide binder that’s 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ which is suitable and easy to tote around. I cut pages in half before I add to my binder and cut and paste the shared patterns on these pages. I also have my pattern collection categorized by the beginning alphabet of the title of that design, i.e. Voxter pattern, I will file under “V”. I have 26 tabs with the alphabet written on each tab and I have more patterns under some tabs than others. I’ve downloaded the template for designing or creating your own zentangle designs which are filed in my Binder. This is how I have my Zentangle Pattern Collection organized.
