Story of Owline
Owls appear in my life all the time. Not live owls, but owls in the form of photos, cards, stuffed animals, ceramic figures, clocks, coloring books, etc. One day I was sitting outside at Starbucks in Wayland, MA creating a new tangle pattern and asked myself, "what should I name it?"
At that exact moment, I looked up and saw a big huge truck with letters written on the side Day Owl Rose, Dayowlwines.... I had never seen this truck before and I knew it was the name of my tangle. Since Rose is part of my name, and "line" is part of my full name Jacqueline it seemed right.
This is what I was drawing when I saw the truck. You can see on the top left I was contemplating two other possible names (prinzinger, zingerswirl) then I looked up and saw the truck.
While sitting at a seminar at the Sheraton Hotel, I noticed the pattern on the chairs and started to tangle them in my sketchbook that I always have in my purse.
This is the chair at the Sheraton that inspired the pattern Cherton
Auras Create Petals.
Marzan came from a pattern I tried to draw created Maria Thomas (co-founder Zentangle) but a new tangle was born instead.
While watching the TV show Bewitched, I came up with this pattern.
This pattern starts off with drawing kind of a D and then a K.
I was at Starbucks Cafe when I created this pattern.
Thank you Terri Delaune, CZT for drawing many of step outs for my patterns. The ones that are neat and crisp were drawn by Terri.
Created on July 4, 2019 while listening to a presenter online who repeatedly said the word "um" which gave me the idea to combine it with the word Freedom for Independence Day.
Zentangle Co-Founder Rick Roberts made a a video using a compass to draw a Tesselation pattern. I created a similar alternative pattern that could be drawn freehand so I named it Compass.
Look how many ways we can use the same reticular.
Compasseta is using the same foundation as Compass with an added touch of petals. See step out in Compass Variations photo. "eta" is from Meta-Patterns where one tangle or more can look like many different patterns.
Look how many different ways we can use the reticular.
Sitting at a place called the Cafe Snob, drinking my latte, waiting for the store Ollies to open, I came up with these variations of hollibaugh.
Latte - cuz I was drinking a latte at the time I came up with these and Rafe, cuz it was raining while I was at the cafe tangling and drinking my latte.
Stopped at a red light, I glanced over to the left and saw this design on the structure of the entrance gate to a neighborhood in The Villages, FL called Santiago.
As soon as I saw this fence, I knew I was going to create a tangle to match it so I took the picture while sitting at a red light.
The description for the next pattern I create will go here.
