3DTangle: Choosing Tangle Patterns


Understand tangle classification and learn how to select patterns with confidence for your Zentangle® art

One of the things I love the most about the Zentangle® method is that it removes the need to think too hard while creating, leaving only "Zen Flow bliss". And yet, picking tangles is one of the most daunting tasks of the method. 

There are almost as many right ways to choose tangles as there are tangles! In this ebook, I cover 4 of my FAVORITE tactics with detailed step by step explanations and exercises. 

This ebook helps you to overcome this challenge by answering questions such as "Which tangle do I choose first" or "How many tangles should I select".

  • How many tangles should I select?

  • Which tangle do I select first?

  • I chose the first tangle. How do I pick tangles that will match well with it?

And so much more!
