An HK Tangler Tangle Pattern

I am so honored to hear that my tangle Spynes has been chosen for Inktober 2021.    I wrote this blog post some time ago, but I thought it would make sense to refresh it since people who are new to me might want to see the video stepouts.  I am SO grateful to Stephanie Jennifer and the team at Seven Fields Five Rivers for this opportunity!   Heidi x

An HK Tangler Tangle Pattern

My late mother, Ruth Ann, was a master quilter and my source of all my love of art, color, and pattern. She also introduced me to Zentangle… after her passing! You can read more about this story, that still gives me goosebumps in my first blog post here. This past year I took her birthday off as a vacation

Flutch: An HK Tangler Tangle Pattern

Flutch:
An HK Tangler Tangle Pattern

Flutch is a tangle that came to me while I was drawing Boofont, by Joanna Quincey.   I started playing with the idea of Hollibaugh-ing under the leaves with a triangle shape.   A couple hours later, *this* had happened. The name? Well that is a lovely story. When I...

Stepped Sand Swirl:
An HK Tangler Tangleation

The very first non Zentangle Headquarters tangle that I learned was Sand Swirl, by Kerry Huen. I love it for its simplicity and the tight auras. Lots and lots of Zen drawing sandswirl.  Kerry's original stepout  has the tangler drawing one compete element before...

Hartfents:
An HK Tangler Tangle Pattern

This tangle, Hartfents, came to me in February 2021, while playing with hearts on a grid during the Valentangle challenge.   It's a pretty easy tangle and if hearts don't speak to you, you can put a circle or a square or a diamond, or whatever you like as the...

Shaimay:
An HK Tangler Tangle

Mooka is certainly one of my favorites.  One morning I decided to start my day off with an orb.  I thought, let's do a symmetrical tangle today.   After sprinkling the Mooka all around the orb, I was at a loss of what to do next.   I heard Maria Thomas's lovely voice...

QuaSahnt:
An HK Tangler Tangle Pattern

My tangle QuaSahnt has a special place in my heart as it was my very first tangle – that I deconstructed before I even became a CZT. I think the tangle has most of it's magic when you bend it into the shape of that French flaky pastry that might possibly be QuaSahnt's...
