100 Days of Zentangle 2021

...continues and ends with this post.

If you are still interested in the 100 Days of Zentangle 2021 challenge with the Tireless Tangler, which continues past the 100 days, click here.

Day 98 and 99 - tangles Nehphi and Korutia with Mooka Hearts.

Tangle Patterns: Nehphi, Korutia, Mooka Hearts

Day 89 - Kaleida and Day 96 Pozer. The glitter doesn't glitter and the white feather doesn't dance in the wind, but Kaleida is not a bad tangle. I drew it in 2 different ways and I haven't decided yet which I like better.

Day 100 - Origonio monotile and computer manipulated below.

Square One

And finally a Square One easy tile or, an after Tissoooh fun tile. Square One™: Purely Zentangle® accepts only b&w tiles, but the Sun Up Sun Down tangle featured during the week of June 25-July 1 was asking for coloring. The light blue things are Insect Wings or I-Wings.

Tangle Patterns: Sun Up Sun Down, I-Wings, Fescu


Refresher #224 with tangles Knase, Hilgabo, Javv, Elirob, and Sooz. Each tangle by itself is certainly interesting, but bunched together...

Tangle Patterns: Knase, Hilgabo, Javv, Elirob, Sooz

Refresher #225 with tangles Nik, Jester, Ilac, Jummah, and one Crazy Huggin(s). This tile's background is one of my old experimental tile distress projects. Scratch the tile with a candle and then color it with watercolors.

...Bow String. Bow Strings turned out to be like in an ogee grid. I am certain I am not the only one seeing those delicate insects in this tangle.

Inspired by...yet another new tangle that was published by tanglepatterns: Fleurie, a most fantastic tangle to fill white spaces if you need to. However, the main focus on this tile is the altered Frunky tangle. I never ever thought I would ever draw Frunky out of my own free will, but here it is. Of course, Bow String had yet to make another appearance.

Tangle Patterns: Frunky, Fleurie, Bow String

Inspired by a Pinterest Video other than Zentangle

The video came with the very appropriate title: ➰oddly Satisfying. Have to admit, it was. Please check it out here, maybe you, too, will be "drawn" into the swing of things and can get satisfaction. I added four single Well segments at the corners with Fescu swirls and the tile is from a 12x12cm notepad.

Tangle Pattern: Well, Fescu

Inspired by Zentangle Artists' Video...

...TISSOOOH by Emiko Kaneko*. Actually, it was Meridiana with her post Happy Errors and the Power of Practice where I found this jewel of a tutorial. It looked complicated to draw and...yes, it was for me! While it stressed me out during the drawing process (each stroke calculated and double checked) I also felt it was a lot of fun...and a big relieve when it was done. Thanks, Meridiana, without you I would have never dared, let alone found the video.

Tangle Pattern: Tissoooh

The next two 12x12 cm notepad tiles sport a sort of Tissoooh with the same starting 'holes', the extension lines and the aura lines...and they were a lot easier....and it got easier and easier with each tile I drew. 'Hidden' tangles on this light blue tile are Flux, Indy-Rella, Uncorked, and Fescu...

A variation of Tissoooh!
Tangle Patterns: Tissoooh var, Flux, Indy-Rella, Uncorked, Fescu

...and Printemps background on the dark blue one.

Another variation of Tissoooh!

A 9x9cm Tissoooh tile with Betweed and Fescu. This abovementioned Tissoooh video tutorial had turned into a mini study project.

I thought I was finished with wrong I was. Here yet another one with tangle Brum(half), Friendship, Msst, Tipple and a few boulders. Tissoooh out of its grid clutches.

My New Tangle...X-Wing Star

In my last post I published a tile with a tangle I had not named because I didn't really think I would deconstruct the pattern. It was close to the fragment D001, but only close and it deserved to be made into a full fledged tangle. So here the birth of X-Wing Star with stepout and some more variations.

A Different Kind of Art

I call this a different kind of art - my first Neurographic work which I refer to as "Dark Hearts". I doubt there will be another one coming.

Animal Happy Day

"It was a moment of love and loyalty" ❤️

If this video has touched you as it did me, read what happens next. You will love it.

I couldn't resist to place this second animal video into this post. If you are the owner of a talented escapee you may want to try this solution. 

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to
Enjoy Life!
It is later than you think!

21. His eye is on the sparrow (spare O), 22. A little misunderstanding (miss under stand in G) between friends, 23. A bad spell of weather, 24. Far out


  1. Always like your original drawings and your wonderful style of tangling.

  2. Oh my, what you did with Tissoooh. Just stunning. When I finished my tile I was sure I'd go back and try it again. And maybe yet a third time. But I haven't so far. You've inspired me to re-do the whole thing (could take awhile). I also like your new tangle and every single other tile you've got on here. I feel the same about the Neurographica--once was enough. And the flowers and animal videos are lovely and touching. I know someone with an "escape artist" and that is exactly how she dealt with it. Very successful.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comment, Meridiana. I hope you will have another go at Tissoooh and in turn edge me on again. I am waiting at my starting blocks....

  3. Once again you are showing a great collection of gorgeous tiles! I don't even know which my favorites could be, because they are all in your unmistakable typical style and inspire me.


I'd love to hear from you. Please leave a message if you have time.
