October's project

Everyone can create fall art this month with zentangle. A Beginners Workshop will teach you all you need to know to get started with zentangle and our project during Tangle TIme classes this month is to create these gorgeous leaves on a textured watercolor background. Bring a leaf from your favorite tree or use our templates. Ask about our group rate and special pricing for adults accompanying kids! For dates and times and more info click on the Class Info Tab at the top of this page or CLICK HERE!

Franklin Harvest Festival Community Zentangle

Last Sunday I had a wonderful day introducing zentangle to folks who visited the Franklin Art Center during Franklin Harvest Festival and many of the visitors contributed to the creation of our zentangle inspired art. One of the centers owner/directors, Ian Kabat, created the borders and the "string", which divides the space into sections, and visitors chose and initialed a section and decided which tangle (pattern) to put into their section. While they watched, I began to fill their section with their pattern demonstrating for each the simple and easily accomplished steps to create the intricate designs. One young visitor asked for her pattern to be outside the borders so we added a separate circle right where she set her finger - I think she picked the perfect spot! Here is the result. You may want to zoom in to see the designs in detail.

And here it is upside down! Which do you like best?

Curiously if you rotate the design so that the circle is on the right the design looks suspiciously like a ghost!

Thanks to everyone!!!

Diva's Challenge #89: UMT v. IX: "Sankegg"

Alternative stepouts for Sankegg (or since the steps are significantly different is it considered a different tangle?). A pencil dot in the top right (mine is in pen on the stepout) and/or the extra thickness on one side of the triangle may make it easier to keep track of how much to rotate the tile?
