Project Pack .04 -- 12 Days of Zentangle - Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of the 12 Days of Zentangle.

Inspired by what Maria created yesterday, Alfie found his way to Maria's desk, put on some headphones and listened to Rick's flute music to get into the mood for today's tangling.

Today, on this fourth day of Zentangle, Maria wakes feeling umble and a bit static, but surprises herself to find the cure with noom amounts of mooka to relieve her molygon.

  • Wow, I love rupus, umble is quiet a challenge for me, thank you for your hints, now I have got some more favourite patterns!

    Petra Hadidi on

  • Beautiful discoveries and rediscovery beautiful tangles always so vibrant. And I love to see you draw the tangles!

    Nathalie Anctil on

  • We appreciate your descriptions and sharing these tangles, great info on Molygon to only go 3/4 with next one, that is very helpful! Thank you!

    Alice Roche on

  • Another fun and ‘umbling’ lesson. Didn’t have my A game for some reason but as always all things zentangle turn out okay in the end. I learn so much from the way you stroke, Maria. For instance the fill you used for tripoli, I don’t think I ever ran along the line and then created the bump…a continuation of take off and land concept that genuinely smooths and makes the parts graceful as one. I so love the meta patterns created here, as well. Salivating in anticipation of tomorrow’s lesson!

  • I had already done Umble in an earlier section, in a random way. It was interesting to see it done in a very regular, corner-to-corner style.

    Margaret Bremner on

  • I am finding this whole process a lot of fun! Learning a lot along the way too. I have found I like the lighter color of the pencils I received as they allow more of the tangle to show. (Could be how I applied it though.)

    I wonder if there is a way to annotate the various tangles actually on the spinner, because I probably won’t remember them all!


  • It is great to be challenged with some tangles that I would not choose to do on my own, that are not in my comfort zone or that have just been forgotten.

    Andrea Roderiquez on

  • I’m having so much fun learning new (to me, at least) tangles like umble, and putting a new spin (yes, that was intentional ) on old favorites and long-neglected ones ( by me, at least). I managed to drop my pen, leaving a bunch of stray marks on yet-to-be-tangled areas, but, (deep breath), there are no mistakes in Zentangle, and they will be incorporated seamlessly into the overall design by the time the project is finished.

    Valerie Hayes on

  • Perfect project while it storms outside! As a left-hander, your comments are appreciated. I am making a spreadsheet to record which wedge I do each day, plus the names of the patterns.

    Ginger White on

  • A few of these tangles will be a challenge for me so I’ll practice first. I also noticed that you are tangling in different spinners and I’m loving the colors and patterns on each one!

    Beth Lovelle on

  • What a nice set of tangles to use today! Great review of noom repus. Thanks. :)

    Roseanne Sabol on

  • just love to be absorbed in the pen and ink!!!! beautiful work

    Susan K Scott on

  • I love getting all my errands done in the early morning and then sitting down to the latest video. It makes my day!

    MKay B B Watson on

  • Alfie is my hero. He brings a particular and priceless quality to our December tangling.

    Marguerite Samama on

  • It is nice to see again all the different shadows on every tangle. I know all the tangles until now but it is very pleasant to draw together and to shade!!!

    Ria Matheussen on

  • I learned a new tangle today – Umble. Can’t wait to try it.

    Nancy Wilcox on

  • Once again you blow me away!

    Diane ross on

  • I love that Zentangles allow each person to create their own style while using the same Zentangles as someone else.

    Delores Azary on

  • I love the videos and sharing how to do some of the tangle patterns. These spinners look like fun.

    Rhonda Miller on

  • Another fun day watching you tangle. I love how you add all the little embellishments.

    Stephanie on

  • Thanks for the tip on using a mirror for lefties.

    Jackie on

  • The spinner looks fun!

    Froglet on

  • Thanks for explaining the relevance of the numbers and letters. I had wondered quite a lot and speculated a few ideas; your explanation makes perfect sense. Now I have more uses for the spinner!

    BethanyARTE on

  • I love how my spinner is coming to life with each days’ tangle. Today I learned a new tangle and practiced one I haven’t really enjoyed before. Both look great. Thank you!

    Karen Thayer on

  • Enjoying the project. I look forward to your emails for the next lesson. I would like to know if you have a spinner completed so that we may see what the finished project looks like. Thanks
