Week 17 - 52 Tangles in 2015

 Week 17 - 52 Tangles in 2015

There is a new Facebook Group called  Zentangle: Stacked and Tangled
 The term Stacked Tangles was coined by  Jane Eileen Malone.   I love that she has come up with a name for this tangle style as it is a method of tangling that I love to do.  Alice Hendon and Jane Eileen Malone started the Facebook Group that is fast becoming a haven for Stackers.   Even my Jane Monk Studio blog and web page heading have stacked tangles and they were done years ago now ... still current :)

Anyway I hope you like the concept of stacking tangles.  I will play with them for a few weeks now.
String Line.  These are all my tangle patterns this week.  Some are very old like Kitties and Click Clack and some are a little newer.   I still like the simplicity of repetitive tangle lines.

Happy Tangling   Jane xx

This week I have morphed a few tangle patterns together.  I would like to explore this idea more.

A little Easter Greeting

I would like to share this little Easter Garden design I drew for you all to print and colour in. I hope everyone has a safe Easter Holiday period.  Share with others so they can colour it in too,  but please use the image only for personal use.     Jane

New One Tangle Volume IV - Borderz - Pattern Step Outs e-book

 One Tangle Volume IV - Borderz is live and ready to purchase either direct through my web site here : http://janemonkstudio.com/index.php…
or through my Craftsy store here : http://www.craftsy.com/user/7113277/pattern-store…

This is a digital e-book. Once purchased you will receive an email with a download link. Please use an email address that you check regularly.

 Borders and more borders. You can use them for making cards, creating journal pages. In fact anywhere you might need a border. I have designed a range of patterns in this volume that will show you how to make your own Border tangle drawings, including showing you how to get that pattern around the corner.



 On the last pattern page I have included a little tip on how to divide a space into even or odd sections without the use of a ruler or using maths. I hope you enjoy this new volume as much as I enjoyed creating it for you. Jane

Zentangle(R) is a wonderful art form that teaches anyone that they can draw with simple step by step lines, circles and swirls. You do not need to know how to make art.

 This is a little snippet of what most of the pattern step outs look like.

Cheers Jane x
