Tangles for Christmas

Tangles for Christmas

 

 

For the last month, I’ve been zentangling Christmas themes. The Facebook Zentangle group I’m a member of, Tangle All Around, spent two weeks designing wreaths. Here’s one I made using the pattern Twistee:

Zentangle, Christmas

This one uses Riki Tiki and Onomato:

For this one, I made multiple auras around each letter of Merry Christmas:

I think Verdigogh is just screaming that it wants to be a Christmas wreath. Here are two attempts:

Below is my favorite wreath, made from Flux:

Zentangle; Christmas wreath

I don’t remember the name of this pattern, but I kind of adapted it to make it lacy:

Zentangle; Christmas wreath

This wreath was made from Golven:

Zentangle; Christmas wreath

I thought it looked a little plain, though, so I added some color, which made it look more festive:

What do you think? I kind of like the original better.

After the wreath challenge ended, I tried a tree made from Twistee and Snow Flower:2B998037-539F-4702-B6FC-3DBA2EB8D142

And I decorated some origami stars. If this one looks familiar, maybe you saw the tutorial that was linked in one of the articles I posted in a previous Creative Juice:

I don’t know all the names of the patterns used below (or if they even have names), but one is a variation of printemps and one is static:

Zentangle; Christmas star

And some of the patterns used below are Muzic, Keeko, Heartline, Printemps, and Shattuck.

I wish you a blessed Christmas and a happy new year.

Gorgeous artwork that will make your creative fingers itch to make more.

I have a recommendation for you. If you have access to Netflix and you’d like to see a different Santa movie, watch Klaus.
