Tangle Pattern: Arrers #7

Another Arrers design. This one could be embellished with colour or adding ‘veins’ to the leaf shapes on the edge of the centre motif.

Tangle Pattern: Arrers #5

There’s quite a wealth of potential in making repeating patterns with block arrows it seems… here’s another in my series. Again, it’s not technically a zentangle pattern as it breaks just about every one of the ‘rules’. It’s a great space filler though as a tangle pattern for your zentangle inspired art pieces.

Tangle Patterns: Arrers #4

My pen has been busy on paper, and there are three more patterns on their way using block arrows as their basis. These do depart from the zentangle ‘rules’ about tangle patterns, but I still reckon they are worth using. I am slightly biased though… Here’s the next tangle pattern in my series:

Tangle Pattern: Why-O-Why

It seems that my brain has tuned into tangle patterns again since I created the three patterns while I was in USA over Christmas. This pattern has been rearranging itself in my head for the last week or so, and this morning I had the opportunity to get it onto paper, step-by-step.

If you’re brave, try missing out step 2 (which I added as a guide) and going straight to the tramlines in step 3. It’s another of those patterns which ‘pops’ with a bit of shading. It’s also one of those patterns, given the resemblance to celtic knots, that may be out there already – but I can tell you I didn’t reference anything when making the instructions, and my brain is very relieved now it’s not juggling all the Os and interconnecting Ys! And there’s always the chance you’ll be going ‘why, oh why did I start this one?’…
