Can't Get Enough..

Of that Valentine ZIA...

On Wednesday, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas posted a wonderful piece on their blog about using aura in Zentangle®.  You can visit their blog at  

They give gorgeous examples of how aura-ing adds beauty and interest to tangles.  They explain that aura is a basic component of most tangles - especially Crescent Moon.

(If the children's book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie comes to mind as you read on, it is purely coincidence :-)

Reading Rick and Maria's blog reminded me of my post from last October 3 (click here to view) and the tiles I completed for it - especially this one:
Crescent Moon by Adele Bruno, CZT
Revisiting that tile made me wonder how Crescent Moon would look on one of my heart ornaments.

Remembering how much fun I had tangling yesterday's heart ornament, I thought I'd give it a try.

Using the tile pictured above for inspiration, I tangled away!

ZIA Valentine Hear Ornament by Adele Bruno, CZT
Now, that's a happy ending to a tangled story.

For Valentine's, try using one of your favorite tiles for inspiration and tangle a heart shaped ornament or card for someone you love.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Valentine ZIA

This week, I used my new pattern LG (click here to see the step out) and tangled this Valentine ornament.   You can view the first in the series of red Valentine hearts here in my earlier post.

Valentine ZIA by Adele Bruno, CZT
LG worked very well as a  filler and it made this a very quick project to complete.  It would be easy to recreate this on card stock as a Valentine or a gift tag...spread the love!

Project particulars:
Purchased wooden 3 "heart ornament
Sakura Identi-pen
White Gelly Roll pen

Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

At the close of my Tuesday morning posts that feature the "It's a String Thing" challenge for the week, I always say, "Send in your photos - you will encourage and inspire fellow Zentangle® enthusiasts all over the world." is a story for you.  It comes from Ragged Ray, a steady contributor to my weekly challenges, a writer, and - without the benefit of a CZT near her in the south of England - a self-taught tangler.

This week she sent a photo of her tile and I inadvertently overlooked it for Monday's post.  

I am beginning to think that it was a bit Providential because she resent it along with a note that really touched my heart...and supplied our words of wisdom for today.  I'll end this post with her quote, but first - here is her lovely tile -
"It's a String Thing" #24 by Ragged Ray
She said that as soon as she saw the string line, she thought "it looked like a paintbrush applying an arc of colour."  Not able to shake the image, she had fun with it instead - "imagining a magic brush painting out all manner of crazy patterns!"

She used larger center white spaces in Yabbut, giving an argyle look to the tangle.  She created a lovely border of Yew-Dee for the wonderfully shaded Y-Ful Power.

Another treat from Ragged Ray comes in the form of her new blog where she has posted, among other delightful things, two beautiful flip books of her contributions to the "It's a String Thing" challenges.  She has such a pleasant and welcoming manner to her writing.  To visit click here - The Ragged Ray

In closing, a quote from Ragged Ray as she noted her growth on this tangled journey since last summer:
I think finding and joining your challenges and the encouragement from you and seeing others work has really helped. I think, while it's true that I could learn the basics fairly well from a book, it's definitely an activity that benefits from practice within a community - even if that is a virtual one.

Thank you Ragged Ray and to all of the tangled artists who make up this wonderful Zentangle® community.  You inspire and encourage me.

"It's a String Thing" #25

It's Tuesday and yes, it is your good news day!

A curious thing happened yesterday that changed the course of this week's challenge.
Linda Farmer at Tangle Patterns posted a new tangle.

Now, usually when I see a new tangle I read the post, look over the step out and examples, and then file it away for a later date when I can dedicate a block of time to learn it and play with it.

Well...I started down the same path with Lynn Mead's new pattern Fassett, (click here to view) but the more I read, the more intrigued I became.  When I studied the step out, I was fascinated by the method behind it - much like Afterglo by Carole Ohl (see my notes here). 

I was already hooked by the time I scrolled down to Lynn's examples - lovely tiles with clever variations of Fassett...way too much fun to put aside for a later date...and so...

We begin with String 025 by Hope Martin as posted on Tangle Patterns by Linda Farmer -

Copyright Image used with permission by

- and then we will only use Lynn Mead's Fassett ... a monotangle with countless possibilities for variations.

Most of all, it will be so much fun to have the time to play with this wonderful new tangle as we complete the challenge.

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away!

This exercise is for beginner and seasoned tanglers alike. Use it as an excuse to keep up with your art work, take time for yourself, learn new patterns, share your talent...

Here are the (Not so) Official Guidelines: 
* Challenges are posted on Tuesdays.
*Use the string posted for the week and patterns that begin
       with the letter(s) indicated
*Work must be completed on Zentangle tiles or on your 3.5" x 3.5" paper
* Submit a photo of your tile saved as jpg or
      scan your tile (300 dpi) and save as a jpg
*Email your jpg file as an attachment to -
*Entries are to be submitted by Saturday evenings.
*Photos and 'Best of Show' are posted on Mondays.

Send in your photos - you will encourage and inspire fellow Zentangle enthusiasts all over the world.
PLEASE NOTE: I will add a link to your blog or web site with your tile photo if you wish.

I look forward to your emails.

"It's a String Thing" #24 Tiles

It is absolutely fascinating to see how a creative group of tanglers - using the same patterns and string line -produced such fabulously varied tiles...

Cheryl Rotnem said that Y-Ful Power took all of her power to do.  It required much practice on her part and in the end, she "got it!"  
It is a credit to her as her persistence paid off.

Anna Houston said that all of the tangles were new to her this week.  She's added some lovely detail to them - especially Yang and Yew-Dee.
Anna writes that " such a wonderful diversion when one doesn't feel well."  Yes, it is - especially with so many people battling colds in this wintry weather.  Get well soon!

Joan Delony said that she couldn't wait to see how others conquered this challenge.  That is a wonderful way to put it - and it is a treat to see how she did it.  
Joan said that she used a "disoriented Yang" as she dubbed it - in between Yincut and Yabbut.  Joan has a wonderful way with words - and tangles.

Sue Green said that she enjoys the challenges as they push her to "try some new patterns" that she "tends to avoid."  That is an echoed sentiment this week, especially for Y-Ful Power.

And like many others, Sue rose to the challenge and her tile is very pretty.  She said she added some color to as a way to add some "strength" to her piece.  It also changes the look of Yincut, doesn't it?

Charlotte Carpentier said that she "finally finished one in time to send it in!".  She is a relatively new tangler, currently taking classes with CZT Sharla Hicks.
This is a really lovely concentration of patterns.  She managed to keep her pattern grids on the same angled lines and one flows into another at the string lines.  That is fabulous!

Charlotte tile is also posted here on her blog.

Jenna Wheatman said this challenge was "tough", but she again found her style managing to make these tangles "flow into one another and combing them to make their own variations."

Jenna's large swirls are extensions of Yew-Dee.  And how she ever managed to have them flow into Y-Ful Power is just mind boggling.  

Her enhancements of sparkle, lines, dots, and shading make this a masterful piece.

Lonett sends kind regards from Germany along with her tile - 
Unlike most artist this week, she said that Y-Ful Power is one of her favorite tangles.  Her challenge came with using so many grid based patterns on one tile.  
Her fondness for Y-Ful shows.  It seems to flow from the white space in her arch and then anchor itself in holes along the base of her tile.  The white space is a very clever touch as is the depth created by using Yang between the curved string lines. 
Lonett has also posted her tile here on her blog.

Jackie Becker said that this was "BIG FUN".

It looks like fun!  Her shading adds wonderful dimension to her tangles, too - especially Y-Ful Power.

Amy Curtis said that when she decided to use Yincut as a background, the "rest sort of fell into place."

She also said that she "really enjoyed going in a playful direction with this one."  It is such a happy tile - has a storybook feel to it, doesn't it?

Amy also posted her lovely tile here on her blog. 

Annemarie tangled this tile:

She created large beautitul swirls of Yew-Dee. Shading them in the middle was a wonderful idea.  She adds a nice touch with sparkle on Yincut too.
Annemarie posted her pretty tile here on her blog.

Ingrid said that while Y-Ful Power seemed a "bit complicated" at first, she did have a lot of fun drawing it.
She now likes it very much.  Ingrid's line work on Yew-Dee is really very pretty and she created a nice effect by alternating the use of Yang and Yabbut.

Brenda Urbanik sent in this beautiful tile - 
She has created a unique look to Yang the way she stacked and darkened it - its wonderful!  Her curved grid lines and shading of Yincut make it appear raised from the tile.

Brenda also posted this picture here on her blog.

Sue Jacobs sent along this pretty purple piece -
She said she enjoyed revisiting some tangles that she had forgotten about.  They are all just splendid in their purple majesty...sparkle, stipple, pretty!

Sue also posted her tile here on her blog.  

A warm welcome to Jafael.  This is her first challenge submission - 

She said that she loves the challenges because they give her a "reason to learn tangles" and "how to do this!"
This is such a wonderful blend of the tangles.
This tile is also posted here on Jafael's blog.

Sue Agnew adds some wonderful touches to her tile - 
She chose to leave the 'arched' space blank, added some 'Cruffle-ing' to Yang and against her usual need to finish every edge, she left the edges of Y-Ful Power unfinished.  
Sue also said her 'creative opportunity' came when she omitted the first step of Yew-Dee and so created a different version of the tangle.
All of these elements add up to one sensational tile.

Vicky Brison said that it was "really nice getting reacquainted with Y-Ful Power."

She also said that when she looks at this tile for a while, she sees a roller coaster!  That is a tribute to her ability to use shading to create depth and the way she uses curved grid lines to give the illusion of distance.

How she blended Yabbut and Yang is especially clever.

A N D  now....the tile of honor for this week was submitted from the south of Spain by....

Annie Taylor!  

Annie actually sent in two tiles.  She, like most others this week, said that she struggled with Y-Ful Power. She decided to use even more of it as a result - now that's a great way to master a tangle!

She said that she could "only see a tunnel" when she first looked at the string...and so she tangled it like so:
Annie followed the curve of the string line and added that darkened space just beyond her Yabbut 'path' to give her tile the feeling of the tunnel she envisioned.

She decided to "go with the flow" on a second tile and used a blue card.  She described her use of Y-Ful Power as a "great learning curve".  

Thank you Annie, for your beautiful work.  I have a little something coming in the mail for you to commemorate the day.

Many thanks to all of the talented tanglers who submitted tiles this week.

More ZIA to Love

On this wintry Friday morning, here are two treats to warm you up -

The first comes from Joan Delony.  Joan is a regular contributor to the "It's a String Thing" challenge and this summer will be traveling to Providence, Rhode Island, to become a CZT.

She was visiting her grandchildren when she read last week's post (click here to view) that featured Vicky Brison's ZIA with her granddaughter's hand print.

With Joan's permission, here is the precious ZIA she completed after she traced her own hand and her four month old grandson's -
ZIA by Joan Delony
That is a priceless keepsake.

The second treat is a photo of the collection of tiles from a basics class I taught last week.  Many thanks again to the talented artists who came.  I look forward to seeing how you incorporate Zentangle® into the beautiful work that you do.

Zentangle® Basics Class Tiles,  Adele Bruno, CZT

Have a wonderful and weekend and stay warm!

LG - A New Pattern!

Just in time for Valentine's...

Here is a sweet new pattern to use for your Valentine's - and all year 'round - 

Tangle Pattern LG by Adele Bruno, CZT
When I completed the step out in my notebook (pictured above) I wrote the words "Love Grows".  

That made me think of my husband - and since his initials are LGB, I named the pattern LG - for him and for how our love has grown.  We are celebrating our 30th anniversary this spring!

Sometimes the simplest ideas make the prettiest patterns.  Here I began with just one small heart and added aura lines around it until I was satisfied with its size.  Then I continued in the same fashion with another heart.  Each additional heart added has a slightly different angle to it and the aura lines form a pleasant elegance.

Sue Agnew noted in her explanation in yesterday's post that most of the heart shaped patterns designed to date are very good border tangles, but few can be used as fillers.   LG works wonderfully as a filler.

Here is a monotangle I completed - 
LG monotangle by Adele Bruno, CZT
See how shading transforms the look of the pattern?  It is really fun to draw and turning your tile as you go helps vary the orientation of the hearts.

Here is a photo of a card I made for our daughter and her husband using LG
ZIA card illustrated by Adele Bruno, CZT

Spread some love today, use LG on a tile, a card...something special for someone you love.  Have fun!

Wonderful Words for a Wednesday

And more Zentangle® love...

Original Illustration by Sue Agnew   
Sue Agnew, a regular contributor to "It's a String Thing" weekly challenges, sent this beautiful piece when I began  posting Zentangle® inspired art (ZIA) in anticipation of Valentine's Day.

It contains a line from her grandmother's favorite poem - the whole of which I include at the end of this post.

As I studied Sue's delicate artwork, I was intrigued by the way she integrated hearts into existing tangle patterns.

When asked about it, she has graciously explained how she chose the patterns to adjust with heart shapes - as well as her thought process.

I post it here (edited with her permission) because I am certain many of us will benefit from her expertise and apply it to our artwork - with grateful hearts, of course!

Sue writes:

... the organization PaperWorks has a postcard exchange each summer where we send postcards to a secret pal. A couple of summers ago I decided to use my grandmother's favorite poem. The first card I used four colors of watercolor pencils to write the first two lines ("the day will bring some lovely thing, I say it over each new dawn") and then painted over with water so you could see words but not read them -- and when I sent my sister a scan of it she commented on how I'd used "dawn" colors. So that made me realize that each card needed to be illustrated in a way specific to the words in it. I wanted to do a Zentangle, and I thought it would be fun to use hearts and heart-related patterns to illustrate the two lines "some gay, adventurous thing to hold against my heart when it is gone."
...I don't think there were as many heart-related tangles as there are now, and many of them are border tangles rather than fillers. So I just kind of looked at other tangles to see if they had heart-ish components.

I originally outlined a simple string with Heartvine, but decided I wanted to use a heart-shaped string and decided Heartvine would be too complicated to bend into a heart I ended up using heart-shaped pearls for the string.
I also tried using Socc (one of my favorites) with heart-shaped shapes but didn't particularly like it. I experimented with Flukes using heart shapes and auras instead of squares, but in the final piece I ended up using Flukes (bottom left corner) but with square lines instead of heart-shaped lines.
I also tried Dex (another one of my favorites) with a light-colored heart reversed out of a dark inner square, but in the final piece I liked it better with just a darkened heart shape in the inner square.
Other than that, I thought Footlites (at right) looked cool using a half-heart instead of a half-circle, I was pleased with how Squill (left) looked with hearts rather than half-ovals, and the other tangle (at top) is based on Rosé, which is made of heart shapes.

This was her grandmother's favorite poem:

The Day Will Bring Some Lovely Thing ~
by Grace Noll Crowell

The day will bring some lovely thing,
I say it over each new dawn,
Some gay, adventurous thing to hold
Against my heart when it is gone,
And so I rise and go to meet
The day with wings upon my feet.

I come upon it unaware,
Some sudden beauty without name,
A snatch of song, a breath of pine,
A poem lit with golden flame - 
High tangled bird notes keenly thinned
Like flying color on the wind.

No day has ever failed me, quite
Before the grayest day is done,
I come upon some misty bloom,
Or a late line of crimson sun.
Each night I pause, remembering,
Some gay, adventurous, lovely thing.

Thank you so very much Sue!

"It's a String Thing" #24

It's Tuesday - your good news day!

We are reaching back into the files of Linda Farmer's String collection this week to String #015.  It was created by Courtney Franz, CZT.
Copyright image used with permission from
In honor of Courtney and working a bit backwards, we will use patterns that begin with the letter 'Y' - the last letter of Courtney's first name.  Since her last name has five letters, we'll use five tangles.

Yabbit by Margaret Bremner, CZT
Yang by Genevieve Crabe, CZT
Yew-dee by Peg Farmer, CZT
Y-ful Power by Shoshi
Yincut and official Zentangle® pattern

These tangles can be found here on Linda Farmer's Tangle Patterns.

Be sure to read the write-ups about these patterns when you search for the step outs.
You will learn how Yabbut got it's name, how Yew-dee came to be and what it was named for, and you'll see the beautifully illustrated variations for Y-ful Power by Shoshi.

Use as few or as many of these patterns as you would like.  

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away!

This exercise is for beginner and seasoned tanglers alike. Use it as an excuse to keep up with your art work, take time for yourself, learn new patterns, share your talent...

"It's a String Thing" #23 TIles

Another week into the new year and another cache of creative tiles to show for it!

More than a few artists said that they were more challenged this week than usual - either by the given tangles, the string, or the combination of both.  At the same time, they submitted their work for the rest of us to observe, to enjoy, and to learn from - earning great admiration in the process.  A heartfelt thank you to all of you.

Sue Jacobs' tile was the first to arrive -
She said that while she did use the string, she "didn't use a frame, choosing to use the string in an abstract manner."  She shaded with colored pencils - green, orange, and purple - "based on the color triad in color theory."
The result is gorgeous.  Sue added sparkle to Barberpole and with her choice of tangles creates such a pleasing blend of straight and curved lines.  

Joan Delony sent in two tiles, the first one is a Renaissance tile - 
She incorporated all of the tangles for the challenge.  While meaning to pick up her brown Micron, she grabbed the red instead. That resulted in a 'creative opportunity' (not a mistake!) - and she ended up liking it very much. Notice how she added the extra detail lines in Bales giving it a whole new look.

She followed that pretty tile with one she called a "more 'artistic' " one - 
and it is.  She used Bales along her string line with a single section of the pattern and added an aura.  It makes the tangle look almost flower-like.  It's a wonderful idea we can all add to our arsenal.

Jenna Wheatman sent in several tiles as well - 

She said that she had a 'bit of a dilemma' choosing her favorite and that is no surprise looking at them.  In Jenna's signature style, her tangles weave effortlessly.  In the tile above Bales dances through, around, and even morphs into the neighboring tangles.  Her use of Baton as a background for Batch and Bales is very clever as is the reverse of the light and dark space in Bandola - wonderful details!  Jenna wrote, "I kept these tangles simple as they went together very well and combined they made their own variations which in turn has made the end result look very detailed."  Well said!

A very warm welcome to Amy Curtis.  Amy said that she is really new to Zentangle® and she already "enjoys it immensely."  She sent in this colorful tile and posted it here on her blog.

Amy used Bandola in a unique way, adding just one to the curve of her main string lines - a really lovely idea. She adds a 'just right' pop of dark space and color.

Ragged Ray said that "tweaking the tangles is a huge part of the fun" when it comes to these challenges.  She said that "sometimes the tweak comes in the form of combining parts of one within another" and that this week "Bateek begged to be popped within Batch - and they look happy together!" 
And happy they are!  That is a beautiful combination, just beautiful.  The loopy string line that Basketweave seems to hang from is another sweet detail.

Annie Taylor wrote about the challenge this presented to her - 
She said that she looked forward to "seeing the other, more exciting and elegant contributions!"
This is very elegant and exciting AND proof that her persistence paid off.  She wove Barberpole in and out and behind, alternated the dark and lightness of Batch and created great depth with her shading. It is lovely.

Cathy Cusson's tile is light and airy - 
She said she welcomed the chance to use Bandola saying it was "nice to pull it off the shelf and dust it off."   The way she drew and shaded the tangle adds great dimension and Bateek fits in with it very well.

Ingrid said that this was a "tricky one" for her -
She said that she ended up with a lot of Baton...She did, and it is beautiful!  She added the dark space at the points and shaded it just so.  Ingrid also added nicely detailed touches to Bales and, Barberpole, and Bask-it.  

Annemarie sent in a bit of sunshine - 

She added yellow with two shades of colored pencils to brighten up her tile.  Her tangles work well together and her use of negative space is delightful.  Ingrid also posted her tile here on her blog.

Brenda Urbanik said that it was "so nice to practice new patterns on new strings!"
She too used a Renaissance tile with wonderful results.  Her tile is nicely balanced with the white behind Batch complimenting the darker Bandola and Batch.  She used the black and brown Microns in a very pleasing balance as well.  While challenging, she found she "enjoyed herself" - and it shows!
Brenda posted her pretty tile here on her blog as well.

Cheryl Rotnem said that she thought she'd "throw in some red" as it is one of her favorite colors - 
She liked the string and added her personal touches to the tangles.  It is very festive!

Sue Agnew said, "Here's as always!"
While she may have fun, it is the rest of us who get to have fun seeing what she does with these challenges!  Many things stand out on her tile:  Bales and Bateek blended, Baton enlarged, the pretty shading.  One really clever touch is the way she used Bandola.  She stacked it on her string line using only one element of the tangle - yet another great idea!

Rhonda Koplin submitted this detailed tile -

She said that her favorite new tangle is Barberpole and "the challenge to perfect the 'shiney' effects"  and it shows in her work.  Her Barberpole is curved, shaded, and shiney.  She added so many lovely details with the other tangles she included as well.

Deanna Spence said that this "was another fun one!"

It is a happy tile, isn't it?  Bales as the main background is especially nice as it shares the same grid as Beteek.  The way Deanna used Basketweave layered over Baton, turning around itself and weaving through is sheer tangled talent!

Jackie Becker said that she completed this tile in bits and pieces...
Not having a block of dedicated time made her less enthusiastic about it.  That is until she began completing her tile.  She writes, "I just started drawing lines and found that I somehow tied one segment of the string into another."  What a happy thing to happen!
Jackie has many details that add to her tile including the single Bandola and the curved Barberpole accented with the lines from Baton.

Audrie Weisenfelder submitted our third Renaissance tile - 

This is a really pretty example of how this color of tile is meant to show both light and dark.  She used aura in the middle of Bales and, by adding the white and brown where she did, created a central focal point that seems to be tipping on axis points as though it could spin.  The other tangles appear to comprise the background adding a pleasing compliment to the Bales grid.  It's wonderful!
Audrie also posted it here on her pretty purple blog.  

Vicky Brison sent in two tiles.  She said that this string line was more of a challenge for her...she couldn't quite find her "groove"... 

...but that does not show in her work - at all.  She said that she got "lost with Bales variations" in the first one.  A lovely musing it is.
She felt that the second tile pictured here was "too heavy".  The Baton actually works well here though to weigh the balance for the other tangles.  She also added some curve to the pattern for a variation.  Very nice.

A N D the artist and tile honored this week is...

Anna Houston!

Anna is the creator of the Bask-it tangle pattern that we used this week.  This is her tile - 

She said that all of the tangles, with the exception of hers and Bales, were new to her.  

Her work was so eye-catching, that I was drawn to it over and over.  Her details are wonderful - the Barberpole spilling into Baton and shaded at the string line by Bateek, the fan of Bales, the curved Basketweave and the dainty Bandola...

In all, a very beautiful piece.  Thank you, Anna.   I have another little some thing coming in the mail for you.

In closing, here is a cozy picture to warm your wintry day sent in by Vicky Brison - her "drawing companions" curled up on her chair - "their favorite place to snooze."

Thank you again to the creative minds behind the string and tangles used in "It's a String Thing" #23 -
