Beauty in Burkina Faso

Patterns are so universal. I am trying to find something beautiful in every place.

The photograph by Rita Willaert below is an example of one of the village mausoleums.  Clicking on Rita's name will show you more of her images.

San Leandro Girl Scout Troup 33818 --Tanglers All

I had lovely time visiting the Brownies at Roosevelt Elementary in San Leandro, CA, yesterday.  I was honored to be their guest to present a program on Zentangle® as a mindfulness practice.  They were so focused, cooperative and enthusiastic, it was a great gift to me to be their teacher.  And it was very special for me to experience firsthand what happens in a scout meeting with children this young.  I was impressed.  We spent only about one half  hour on the actually ink part of the tangling.

Here is a mosaic of their work.  It includes the work of three adults, including the leaders.  I take responsibility for the poor photographic quality.

Please support

Almost all experienced tanglers rely on Linda Farmer of in some ways.  Her site is the mother lode of tangle patterns and guidance.  I encourage all who use her site to go there and contribute support to keep this site going.  You can do this by contributing $15 and getting the 2016 Tangle Guide.

This Guide is a .pdf file, which can be used as a printed or online visual catalog of all patterns published on the site, is also interactive in that clicking on a pattern takes you directly to the website, and shows you stepouts.
