I love to play with new tangle patterns! And this one from Hanny Waldburger is a beautiful one! But first, let me show you something else that I love and think is beautiful!
I took this photo with my cell phone this morning when we woke up. It was shot from the upstairs loft, from inside the house. Hahaha! It was 17º F when we got up this morning. ???❄️☃️ Hahaha! I hope that worked! Anyway, I love living in Maine and I love the snow. As long as we don’t get it all in one day. The high today is supposed to be 20.
Yesterday, I posted about some Hahnemühle YouTangle.art Tiles that I added Daler Rowney acrylic inks to. Today I chose one of those to tangle with a new-to-me tangle someone in my Facebook group used yesterday.
Hanny Waldburger is a Certified Zentangle Teacher and she has excellent skills for designing new patterns. This one is no exception. I took this photo from her Instagram postings. Here is a link to the exact post. I chose the pink tile above and set out to combine the two into a piece of art.
Sistar has a lot of possibilities with variations – tangleations. You just have to decide how you want to go with it. I liked how the blocks flowed one into the next. This was my first attempt at drawing the pattern, I think I can get it cleaner the next time I work with sistar. And you know I had to include some printemps! Hahahaha! I would love to see what you do with sistar. Just use this step out from Hanny. If you have never used a step out before it is super easy to do! Start in the first block and draw what you see. Then move onto the next block. Each new step is shown in red, so it is easy to build on what you have already drawn until you have the pattern completed. To start with, just try to tangle one block of the pattern. This is called a ‘fragment’ – which really just means a block of the pattern. Those little blocks – or fragments – can be turned in any direction and used in a grid format (reticula). The overall design may change in appearance based on the direction of your blocks. Awesome! And a whole lot to wrap your head around. We can develop that in another post.
