Tangle of the week: Crescent Moon

I’m fairly sure this was the second ever Tangle I learned, from a book my Mum bought for me. There’s a tutorial video here, which showed me that I actually do a slight variation on the Tangle by not putting an aura around each bump individually first.

Either way, you start by putting some bumps round the edge of your shape.

Then you draw an aura around them. One by one as in the video, or in a continuous aura like I’m going to do. You can join the aura to make a complete loop:

Or just draw a continuous line until you run out of space, like this:

And the magic of Zetangle makes it look like a wibbly wobbly timey wimey tunnel stretching into the distance.

I love using this Tangle as a kind of frame on my cards; plop the sentiment in the middle, add my bumps round the edge, and then aura up to the words.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Somebody bought me a book on zentangles so I’ll be following along. I read the introduction to the book and it all seems so contradictory. You draw freely, yet follow patterns. I guess I’m seeing here that you learn some simple patterns you can repeat and combine without having to think about it much, which makes more sense to me. I’ll try this out some time and keep watching your sketches. I love how you have a use for them once you’ve learned them, too!
