Announcement: Join TanglePatterns

Linda Farmer, Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT#7)Greetings! I’m Linda Farmer, a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT®). TanglePatterns.com was created over a decade ago in May of 2010 to serve and network the Zentangle® community with new tangles and great creative resources.

A very warm welcome to you, you are certainly among friends. Tanglers are a wonderful, generous and sharing community. I hope you enjoy the site and are inspired by the tangles and many useful resources you find here. Please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments on any page and join in the community.

My name (Linda) in a Zentangle®, using tangles with names starting with the letters of my name. Click this Zentangle to learn more.If you are new to the Zentangle art form, I suggest you visit the ZENTANGLES > WHAT IS A ZENTANGLE page (top menu bar) first to get an idea of the focus of TanglePatterns. On the ABOUT > HOW TO USE THIS SITE page you’ll find helpful suggestions for using the site.

Here’s another resource that’s handy for newcomers — Exploring TanglePatterns. Be sure to check out the rest of the pages on the menu at the very top of every page — there’s a wealth of information there you’ll want to see.  Also, don’t miss the TUTORIALS tab on the pink alphabetic tangles menu bar.

I’ve also added an FAQ page on the “About” menu that may answer any other questions you might have.

“Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book.
