How to draw Arukas by Molly Hollibaugh CZT

I told my students at the Zentangle Art Class I would place this video on my 
blog with Molly drawing Arukas,  Molly is wonderful. What a great tangle. 

Here are a few of my tangle tiles using Arukas.
After I looked at my tangles I did in 2014 I decided that they were not so bad.  I like the smaller circle to start.

I did not start with a circle here. I did the spokes first I love the look.

Here I did a double band with each rotation.
they do have a star look don't they.

How to Draw Star Tangles November week Two Lesson.

This week in my Library Zentangle Art Class we learned how to draw tangles that looked like stars. Ahh!, Ahh! with Indy-Rella, Joy with Indy- Rella, Afterglo, and Hurry.

I love the look of Hurry done like a star. the one below is done on gray paper with white chalk used to shade the tangle.

Afterglo by Carol Ohl is one of my favoret start type tangles, when it is done as a mono tangle..

Below you will see Joy done with Indy-Rella what fun thanks Joyce Block for this tangle. 

I am now doing video of the tangles I do each week at my Zentangle Art Class.  Here is the video for this week.  Please let me know what you think of my video, and if you like it subscribe to my YouTube channel.

How to draw Nymph by Melinda Barlow

This is my second video and tangle pattern.  Nymph was the first tangle pattern I developed,  April 14, 2014, I can't believe it has been that long.  I love this tangle it is my go to tangle.
Here are a few samples of Nymph plus a video.

I don't like making my tangles all the way to the edge of the tile.  I like to do dots and borders but for some reason I did this one with out the dots and borders. I do know I did the grid with a pencel not a pen.

 This one I did on tan paper with white gelly roll pen by Sakura. Love the look of the white on tan.
 This is the tile I did in the video.
 If you look close you will see the date on the tile, August 2014.

Two tone tile with brown and black Sakura pens. .01. 

After you watch the video subscribe to my channel for more videos.
I teach every week and I have plans to post video of our class.
