Zentangle Art Lesson Spurkle Tangle Lesson #273

Sparkle is a tangle by Rosemary Turpin, I had a great time with this tangle. I am not a big fan of grid tangles but I think I will use this one often. The spurtle is a wooden Scottish kitchen tool, dating from the fifteenth century, that is used to stir porridge, soups, stews and broths. The rod-like shape means that porridge can be stirred without congealing and forming lumps, unlike a spoon that would have a dragging effect during stirring, and the low surface area reduces the chances of porridge sticking to the instrument.

Tangle Pattern Album Lesson # 261



Tangle Pattern Album Holds 32 small 2x2 tiles, great idea for keeping tangle ideas with you when you travel. 
You can buy a kit to make one at my store for $5. 



Supplies: 4-Sheets of card stock #65 paper 8 1//2 X 11 (Standard for the USA Size Paper) Glue Stick ( I use Elmer’s Washable School Glue) Paper Cutter or Scissors Round 2” paper punch (optional) 

Cutting Instructions: Cut each piece of card stock into two pieces 1- 4 1/2” X 11” 2- 4”x 11” Cut this piece in half making 2 strips 2”x 11” Cut the 2” strips into 2”X 2” Squares you will have 10 squares. If you are going to punch some round 2” circles do this now with one of the 2” strips. You will need to be very accurate when cutting your strips or you will not have room to punch your circles. 

Folding instructions Part one: Fold each of the 4 1/2” Strips, measure along the 11” side 3 1/4” and fold. Do this on both ends of the paper and on all 4 strips. (See Video) 

Gluing instructions: Glue the 4 strips together in the center of the strip, it should measure 4 1/2 X 4 1/2”. Where you place the glue. You will glue the strips of paper in opposite directions forming a X. one going vertical and one horizontal. Don’t forget to add you string to tie the album together. This is add on the first paper. between the vertical and horizontal. See Video 

Folding Instructions Part Two: Now fold the album, folding alternating the vertical and horizontal paper. Forming a square 4 1/2” X 4 1/2” You will have space to place 32 Bijou or 2 x 2” tiles in this Album, I liked the small 2” round tiles also to give it some variation and looks great.

Mookaflower will be one of my goto tangles. I have loved Mooka sense the day it came out. I remember sitting at my desk at work and drawing Mooka over and over, love at first sight. I feel the same way about Mookaflower, or for that matter anything that looks like Mooka I love how easy it is to draw and how it just flows out of my pen. It looks great in the round and on gray paper, it is to die for, hope you have fun with this one also. Order supplies gray paper tiles, white Gelly Roll pens and much more.

Spiral Wave Tangle Pattern Lesson # 259



Spiral Wave is such a beautiful tangle. Brought to us by Nicole Dryer. I was a little slow getting going on this one but once I got started I could not stop. I love how it looks on the black paper. I am sure once you start you will fill the same and I do about this tangle. I have changed the order of the stepouts but it all comes out the same. Here is a link to Nicole's stepouts and a closer look at the tangles I did on this video.
