Tanglepattern – FLOOP

Dear Tanglers!

Today I have a new pattern for you. It was first published in my Zendalas book. And it’s so much fun to draw!

So here is Floop:

Floop - A Zentangle Pattern by Anya Lothrop, CZT

Floop is, in fact, easier to draw than you might think at first. Nevertheless, I advise you to practice a little bit before trying it on a tile, as it takes a bit of getting used to. But when you’ve gotten the knack of it, it’s really quite easy!

So, go ahead and try it, because (hint!) you might need it in next month’s Pattern Mixer Challenge! ;-)

See you then!



ISH – A Zentangle Pattern

Dear Tanglers!

Today I’d like to introduce a new pattern: “Ish“. I created it for my new book, which will be published in German on April 16th (first in magazine form – the book will follow later).

Cover_Zentangle2_Anya_LothropPart two is mainly a collection of patterns, but there are also some cool tips and tricks. There will eventually be an English version – I will let you know. (more…)


8’s again!

Dear Tanglers,

It’s happened again: I’ve made a “mistake”.
And it’s happened again: I’ve turned the mistake into a tangleation that’s so neat I’ll post it here for you.

Reminder: Zentangle philosophy says there are no mistakes, just opportunities to change/make better. (more…)
