Hahnemühle and Sistar Tangle


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.

    • thanks, Sandra, you know how I am about the color <3 hahaha! I've noticed that you love some color yourself 🙂

  1. I have tried this tangle and it is fun to do. Alice I am truly enjoying your blog. I like how you explain the materials and post links to the companies and sources.
    I am not a fan of snow,but at least you get sun when it is not snowing, at least I hope you do.

    • hahaha! yes, we do get sunshine, too! usually when the temps are too cold to snow. like today. 3 degrees here today so it won’t snow. thanks for letting me know about the links. I like to do that, and it takes some work, it is good to know they are helpful.

  2. Sistar is saved in my tangles to play with file. It looks fab and one I know I’ll have endless fun with.

    I love what you’ve done with it here. And the way that black ink tangling over colour always seems to make the colours shine brighter rather than dull them.

    My subscription to your blog works fine now too by the way!

    • I’m glad things are working with the site now. it was a headache there for several days. but it seems well now. thanks for letting me know. have fun with sistar – there are several ways to finish it. I want to play with more of them 🙂

  3. Beautiful tile, awesome pattern…adds up to gorgeous art! Love how you layer Printemps!
    I’ve said it before – you live in a Hallmark card! So peaceful and wonderful!

    • hahaha! we do live in a hallmark card! and Narnia! thanks, Chris, I love making color <3

  4. Looks fantastic! I just sat here and filled in a block I had started and didn’t know what to use in it. This fits perfectly. Thanks tons.

    Love that view of the snow.

    • haha! I’m glad I could help you out with that block! we do love the snow! just wish it came a little more spaced out

  5. Absolutely love this – I’m becoming fascinated by Reticula & Fragments & your explanation is perfect; I’m looking forward to seeing how you develop this theme enormously.

    • actually day after tomorrow I have a post scheduled that is going to address reticula and fragments – or as I call them framework and units 🙂

  6. I am happy to hear that you enjoy my new tangle Alice, you did a lovely job on the color as well! ?
    I would like to ask you though if next time you share one of my stepouts, that you please just add the link to the original step out on my Instagram account instead of coping the picture to your post. Or at least, also add the link to the origin next to the picture, thanks a lot. ??
