Traditional Zentangle…

A very simple ritual is part of every traditional Zentangle.

1. Make a dot in each corner of your paper tile with a pencil. Connect the dots to

form a basic frame.

2. Draw guideline “strings” with the pencil. The shape can be a zigzag, swirl, X,

circle or just about anything that divides the area into sections. It represents the “golden thread” that connects all the patterns and events that run through life. The strings will not be erased but will disappear.

3. Use a black pen to draw Tangle patterns into each section formed by the

“string”.

4. Rotate the paper tile as you fill each section with a pattern.

How to Get Started 1. Use a pencil to make a dot in each corner.

2. Draw vertical lines (straight or curved) that are parallel to each other.

3. Add a circle at each intersection.

4. Color two opposite sections of each circle with black.

5. Make a dot in each center area.

Each Tangle is a unique artistic design and there are hundreds of variations. Start with basic patterns, then create your own.

With Zentangle, no eraser is needed. Just as in life, we cannot erase events and mistakes. Instead, we must build upon them and make improvements from any event.

Life is a building process. All events and experiences are incorporated into our learning process and into our life patterns.

Index of Tangles…

These tag shapes are the perfect size to create an index of all the tangle patterns and variations that you have practiced and learned. It is a ready reference for drawing new creations.

TIP: Cut out each tag, write the name of the tangle on the back. Place all the tags in a jar. When you make your next Zentangle, draw one tag out of the jar at a time then draw that tangle in a section. Repeat for each section.
