Certified Zentangle Teacher - one who has been trained by the founders of Zentangle, Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts.
Marks used in creating a border.
This term was created by b-Rad, the husband of Laura Harms, CZT (best known in the Zentangle community as The Diva and beloved for her weekly challenges); it was coined in March 2011to describe a Zentangle or ZIA using only one singular tangle for the design; the tangle may be used in its "pure" form or in tangleations.
Pencil pathway drawn within / over your bordered area to define areas to tangle; intended as a suggestion, not a requirement.
A predetermined pattern created by a few repetitive, deliberate strokes, normally in pen.
A rendition of a tangle pattern that remains recognizable but contains variation of line, fill or other elements that differ from the usual norm.
3.5 inch square of 100% cotton, acid-free, high quality art paper.
Overlapping shapes where the main bodies are filled with tangles, then the overlapping segments contain a combination of the contributing main body tangles. Example - Circle 1 overlaps Circle 2 making Segment 3; Circle 1 is filled with a specific tangle, Circle 2 is filled with a different specific tangle and Segment 3 is filled with a pattern incorporating elements from both Circle1 and Circle 2. Invented March 2011 by ptrish40.
There are two different artworks that are called Zendalas within the Zentangle community. These are:
a) A circle filled with tangles, done without a symmetrical string and / or
b) A circle of radiating strings that are filled with tangles.
Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is traditionally on a 3.5 inch tile, is non-representational and without defined orientation.
