New Pattern: Ticking






I call this new pattern Ticking because when shaded, it looks a bit like stitched fabric (to me anyway).  It is really quite simple.  Steps 2 and 3 can be combined but I do them separately so that I can make the space divisions as even as possible.  It helps if I have a starting point.  I tend to get carried away with lines if I don't start from a divided location.

It's a little like Bales at the start and you can start with a grid or just make your ovals at even distances and go from there.

I hope you like this one.  I haven't seen a pattern like this out there in the Zentangle universe but if you have please let me know.  Also:  I had one heck of a time coming up with a name for this one.  If there is another pattern named Ticking let me know and I'll rename it.  I googled and didn't find one, but you know how inexact Google searches can be.

  1. Hey, I love this pattern. I am putting it in one of my images, today. It's more than a filler, it's a great texture that gives depth and great wave design. Thanks so much for your addition into the realms of the Zentangle world.

  5. Cor!! That's really great! A very effective pattern. I've been zentangling for just over a month now, and you can see my efforts on my blog - I'm quite pleased with my recent Zentangle Art which is the direction I seem to be going these days.

    Do you have any instructions for drawing the tangle known as Y-not? I've been looking for it everywhere... It looks easy but I can't seem to get it started!

    Happy tangling, and thanks for sharing this one - it will be a useful filling in pattern.

    1. I will check out your blog! I always love to see what other people are doing. It is so helpful when I get stuck on a spot. I'm headed in Zentangle inspired art as well but it's nice to do a Zentangle to keep inspired.

      I do not have any tips for Y-not. I haven't been successful with that one yet. I'll keep an eye out though and if I see anything to help, I'll pass it along.

    2. If you have the book "Yoga for Your Brain", the tangle Etcher (page 6), is the same as Y-Not, according to Sandy Bartholomew. Y-Not is a tangle by CZT Molly Hollibaugh, Maria's daughter, and she has taught it at a couple of the training seminars. Steps have not been published online.

    3. Thanks! It would be lovely if that pattern could be published online. I am sure it would be a popular one.

      Hope you enjoy my blog, JJ LaBarbera! I do a lot of things in addition to Zentangle!
