In times past, the Jester was the Fool that reminded the King he was human. He’d entertain and play tricks to amuse. The Jester pattern creates an optical illusion to fool the mind.

The wildly spotted coat of the Appaloosa conjures up visions of rugged landscapes, the wild west, war parties. This striking pattern will add a bold splash of excitement to your zentangle.

Each branchContinue reading “My tangle patterns:Wood-sere”

Throughout the ages, lacemakers have decorated clothing and beautified tabletops and fancied up their furniture with fluffy, delicate, or elegant streams of lace. You can enhance your zentangles with a touch of LACY. This particular pattern makes meContinue reading “Lacy: Non-official Zentangle/ZIA pattern”
Stubs (was Nibs)Originally uploaded by molossus aka rooibas Tangle patterns are everywhere, even in the art of others. Jennifer Maestre is one artist that thinks outside the box–or rather, outside the drawing. Instead of using her pencils to sketch with, she cuts them up, and sews them into the most incredible creatures. http://www.jennifermaestre.com/ The minuteContinue reading “Stubs: Non-official Zentangle/ZIA tangle pattern”
BuoyOriginally uploaded by molossus aka rooibas Sometimes you need a little help. Buoy is a simple little doodle that adds zing to repetitive backgrounds such as pebbles, or KEEKO or YINCUT. It’s a handy dandy lifesaver shape.
