Zentangle Project Pack No. 19 - The 12 Days of Zentangle 2022 - Day 11

Zentangle Project Pack No. 19 - The 12 Days of Zentangle 2022 - Day 11

It has become an annual Zentangle tradition for us to celebrate the holiday season with a series we call The Twelve Days of Zentangle. For twelve consecutive days, we deliver daily tangling lessons, guiding you through the steps to create festive tangled works of art that are all part of the same theme.

Join us now for Day Eleven, as our old friend Alfie and a couple of new friends take us through The 2022 Twelve Days of Zentangle.

“Ahhhhhhh,” whispers Nomi, “I have been so looking forward to this part. I love adding “love” to my Zentangle creations: touching up wispy lines, adding rounding in the corners and crevices (as in the smaller angle where two lines meet), adding “drama” to some shy tangles, or in some instances, a bit of color. This is fun, like sculpting clay or making a great snowball."

"Or a great snow sculpture!" adds Marasu. I love how you used the tangles we've learned to fill in some of the spaces."

Marasu, Alfie and Harold look on and join in as Nomi holds his beautiful creation at arms' length to appreciate what he created and to see it from a different perspective.

“The lines and shapes call out to you at this stage” said Marasu. “I can’t wait to add more tangles and love to my 'tree,' for my tangles to speak to me. I can't believe we're already on Day 11. There's only one more day after this. I wish I could do this every day!”

Harold adds, “maybe, Marasu, Alfie and Nomi, we can tangle together on a regular basis. Maybe we would learn from each other. I heard that you can always learn a thing or three from beginners.” Big smile.

This Zentangle series is unique as we will be working on one singular piece of tangled art over the course of twelve lessons. The customized surface will provide structure and a common element to guide us on this adventure together. We will methodically and magically add to the structure as we simultaneously discuss and share our system of collecting, deconstructing, and categorizing tangles. As we take you on an adventure, we will introduce you to our Zentomology™ approach. We will explore Tangle Genuses, or categories of tangles.

In true Zentangle fashion, our approach to this system is playful and open to exploration and interpretation. We use the Zentomology system as way to learn about the characteristics of tangles and explore how to use them in ways that enhance and balance our tangled compositions. As we dig into this concept, we leave a trail of tangled artwork behind us. Join us as we get tangled up in the Zentomology approach of studying tangles while creating one large piece of tangled art.

Each day, as we add to this singular piece of tangled art, we remind you to trust the process. Watch as this composition comes together with different tangles, concepts and your individual style. At the end we will bring all of the elements of the Zentangle Method together in a beautiful and unique piece of artwork.

Tangle along with Martha as she guides you through the eleventh video in this series.

We recommend doing these videos in order, beginning with day 01. You can view all previous Project Pack No. 19 videos here.

Please share your creations on the Zentangle Mosaic App using the hashtag #PP19Day11 and #12DaysofZentangle2022.

Let us know your thoughts below and at the end of this series, we will pick a commenter at random from each day to receive a Zentangle surprise!



  • I finally finished this gorgeous piece. Each lesson took much more time than I had in a day but I think that’s because I savor each mark. Anyway, I’m happy that I did, not just because it’s fabulous but also it reaffirms my love of the 3 1/2" tile. Yup, they are my very favorite along with a Bijou in my pocket along for the ride. You all are so creative and fun to play with!!!

  • Such a great joy; I‘m looking forward to do all the shading. A lot of work ahead, but such fun. Thank you all at HQ for your wonderful ideas and for the joy you bring to us with The twelve days of Zentangle“ each and every year.


    Martina Fegeler on

  • Interesting to see how it grows piece by piece. One stroke at a time…

    Claudia on

  • Watching these 12 videos has been amazing. I’ve started my piece and am looking forward to sharing my finished project on the App. The shading video was invaluable. Thank you for all that you share with us throughout the year. Looking forward to seeing all the different pieces in the wrap up video!

    Mary Margaret Yahnke on

  • Great project! Love the layers of tangles!

    Patti A. on

  • The details of the filler tangles is amazing how those tie the piece together!

    Linda J on

  • Seeing the pencil break during the weighted Printemps was so helpful – the mark made by the break just being incorporated into the whole……………. perfectionism can fly out the window or……. the imperfect becomes the perfect.

    Evy Browning on

  • Watching the videos each day has been so much fun for me.

    Jackie on

  • Oh my! I missed a week. But I’m getting caught up. So happy for blog videos. If I miss something I can watch again

    Sarah Brewster Hager on

  • I am enjoying filling my spaces with these texture tangles!

    Andrea R on

  • I “thought” I was getting ready for shading today, not listening as closely as I should have yesterday….but guess what? There was still lots of “space” to develop more interest. I listened to Martha, studied everyone’s pieces, studied the Zentomology section on the texture genus, and wow! (IfI say so myself!)

    Ellen Weinman on

  • I LOVED this time with Martha. I misunderstood Rick yesterday, and thought that we were going to be shading our work today. I had so many empty spots, and hadn’t done several of my favorites, so I did Indyrella, Betweed, Flux (Rick’s and Maria’s), a couple of Drawings, a few sprigs of Icanthus, some Hollibaugh, and crazy Huggins last night. . . I still had room for today’s tangles as well! I really like the printemps with the watercolor pencil. I haven’t done it yet, but I have several areas where I could use a simple background. Everyone’s projects are beautiful! I find it fascinating that each one started the same, but ended so differently.!

    LLS on

  • Love these texture filler tangles today. I must have been in the mood for them because yesterday I added Shattuck which had a similar effect.

    Donna on

  • I haven’t had the time to try out this project yet but I am enjoying watching the videos and the progress each day!! It is wonderful!

    Suchitra Komandur on

  • I’ve gotten a bit behind but I’m enjoying this and seeing what everyone is doing!

    Diane Harpster on

  • I love the texture tangles, especially the Tipple!

    Wendy on

  • I hope this BIG tile to be the first one I hang in my room and show to my family and friends.

    LIM CHOU TI on

  • I love all the additions. What a wonderful compilation of tangles!

    Debbie J on

  • Loving ALL the fillers, I can’t believe I’m running out of space on such a large “tile” ;)

    Dorian on

  • What a lovely touch with the watercolour pencil. The teal especially creates such a soft textured background. Who knew that watercolour pencils work well even without water!

    Deborah R on

  • I’m going to take some time filling in the empty spaces…but Betweed, one of my favs, Tipple, Indy-Rella, and weighted Printemps are a great start…and I can see some Fescu popping up! Adding the colored pencils back is a great idea! Thank you!

    Carol R. on

  • Every project pack that comes along seems like the best ever. But this one hits it out of the ballpark. It has been wonderful to see how different each one is, and yet with the same “bones”. Thank you! I am sorry that there is only one day left, but excited to see the final results.

    Suzanne Munro on

  • Oh my goodness how the time flew! It is great to see the crew again. I can’t wait for tomorrow to see what is next.

    Kris Miskimins on

  • How wonderful is a water colour pencil #printempt. I cant stop drawing them. So glad to be died more of this teal shade

    Ros Badcock on

  • Day 11… already?? This has been so much fun!
