My tangle pattern: Quatiny


Today’s offering relies heavily on shading for a 3D look. You could do it without, but it looks so-o-o much cooler with. You can use this a border, or fill, or, if you look at my sample, you can see how to use it as a string.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. I have page after page after page of Otopo, Quatiny and Kiwi. For perverse reasons, I have had a real need to use my fountain pens and I am still at that stage where wham, all of a sudden I drop my concentration and manage to make one huge glorious smear (ummm, a Bronx cheer would not be quite large enough, would require a North American cheer or somesuch) or a bunch of smears that would serve well in learning to do fingerprinting. I am the first to admit that one should not try to learn a new pattern, a new medium and shading in one fell swoop but having said that, I have passed a wonderful Saturday neck deep in ink and smears. I sat outside with my pens and inks and pencils and puppy and of course, my notebook opened to your blog. A fun time was had by all.

  2. Thank you all! Kimberly, consider getting a white gel pen, and when the smear dries, tangle over it with the white. It's one of my favorite methods of reclaiming a spot I don't like!
