Tangles for Christmas, 2021 edition


In the weeks before Christmas, my drawings are generally Christmas-related zentangles. This year, I started out with some Christmas trees. The first uses the patterns Emingle (a variation) and Ahh:

Emingle (var.) + Ahh
This pattern is called Star Berries, by Dawn George:

For the next one, I created a hybrid from three patterns I know, Nipa, Crescent Moon, and Line Dance by Alice Hendon. I’m calling this Nipa Moon Dance:

I did this on the reverse side of the Emingle tree; unfortunately, you can see it peeking through.

This one uses Brr by Julie Isaac, Festoon Holiday by Joan Stark, and Holiday Ornaments by Suzanne McNeill:


Next, a couple of Christmas messages. The first one utilizes the pattern Purrlyz by Hanny Waldburger:


And this one features l’Eaura:


And finally, my favorite string in this group employs Ginili by Randi Wynne-Parry, Twistee by Livia Chua, Flux, and Luv-a by Sharon Caforio:

Ginili, Twistee, Flux, Luv-a
