The Mystery of the Tangled Legend Book

The Mystery of the Tangled Legend Book

Maria writes...

Hello all you wonderful, creative, caring, beautiful/handsome tanglers!

We recently got a very unusual email here at Zentangle Central. One of our (see above descriptions) tanglers (we will call SF), informed us that we sent her a (most remarkable) legend booklet in her Zentangle Project Pack.  
 
Although she (or he) did not notice it right away because he (or she) assumed it was the way it came,  . . . suddenly noticed, while watching the Zentangle Project Pack videos that accompanied the materials, that many of the spaces were already tangled!  
 
Hmmmm.  
 
In the videos, they spaces were empty, awaiting someone to fill them in with their own creations. We struggled to understand what she was saying. . . because how could one book out of all the ones we sent out be already filled in. So, we asked SF to send us images of the book. And, sure enough, there they were . . . tangles all about!

Now, mind you, everyone knows how I love a mystery.  And I have given it some of my time to no avail.  We have asked everyone here if they had their own books in their possession, and so accounted for any that may have slipped into the general box of legend books.  This was certainly a tangler’s conundrum.

So we are asking all of you if you can solve this mystery.  Leave your theories in the comments, and we will eventually give away goodies to the one who solves this mystery, and also choose some random commenters for other giveaways.

Put on your thinking cap (preferably a deerstalker), and see what sleuthing you can do.   Perhaps, me thinks, do a tile or two to get the grey (a General's pencil will do nicely) matter afoot! 

 

The Zentangle Legend Book is featured in Project Pack No. 10

  • Well of course it was the one and only bijou! Slow steady and loves to surprise!! Such a little body with such a big heart ❤️

  • Maybe it was Bijou!

  • There are those that talk in their sleep and there are sleep walkers…perhaps there is a sleep tangler afoot or would that be “ahand”? :)

  • Sleeptangling?

  • It was the tangling fairies, the ones that come and play at night. They wanted to make someone happy!

  • All very mysterious….even more so as my initials are also SF ! 😂

  • I am sure SF, treasures the Legend, and does feel very special. I think it will be a wonderful memory that he/she can keep close. I bet she will play it forward.

  • I don’t know if zentangle has a return policy (because I don’t know why anyone would ever return zentangle supplies…🙂)- but did anyone ever return a project pack 10? Maybe someone in the home started to fill it out and forgot and someone else returned it?

  • Elvis is in the building.
    Elvis has gotten himself into a tangle to two in he’s life. Now he’s gotten into Zentangle.

  • Well, it was Bijou, certainly! It seems just the sort of trick he would find amusing. I’ll bet he’s giggling right now at all the fuss he’s caused.

  • …..and no Chop identification??? Couldn’t be a CZT who forgot step 7….never!

    Someone may have purchased it, received two by mistake and returned the wrong one. Eager to hear the conclusion!

  • From a dear friend who wanted to be sure our recipient would fill the rest of the book in. Kind of like a jump start!

    Barbara Fleming on

  • Check out the mookas. Everyone has a unique way of doing them. Does it match anyone at HQ?

    SARA WACHSPRESS on

  • Sorry for my bad englisch, but i will try:
    a) maybe SF got the pp as a present and as a surprise something was already drawn into it
    or
    b) maybe one of his / her children discovered the pp and drew something

  • If the above image is from that mystery book, the tangler obviously knew what he/she was doing. Perhaps a former employee?

    KENDRA PAGE on

  • Hmmm The Zentangle Fairy Godtangler at work. More than once I have received inspiration from this helpful being. Alas, not in material form. So, I ascertain SF must be a very special and worthy artist for this gift to manifest as such a beautiful and surprising way. A very lucky tangler as well!

  • Ask around to see if anyone recognizes their own tangling and ask them how many books did they work on and are they all accounted for. Maybe someone just wanted to surprise a random person in Random acts of Zentangle. Whatever happened, you certainly surprised SF with a cherished treasure.

  • Perhaps it was a booklet at Zentangle HQ that was sitting out for anyone to tangle in as they passed through the office ? And then it just got packed up by an unknown multitasking employee to be sent out for an order of the Zentangle Project Pack ?

  • God works in mysterious ways!!!

  • I’m thinking of a gremlins in the zentangle ´s warehouse 😉

  • Maybe a certain mollusk 🐌 with a French accent?
