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.
At a seminar at the Marriott Hotel, I started drawing the pattern on the chairs. The chairs reclined which I had never seen at a hotel meting room before and that is why I call this pattern Recline.
Auras Create Petals.
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
I was at Starbucks Cafe when I created this pattern.
Was drinking my first Starbucks Nitro when I came up with this pattern.

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.
Inspired by the Florida Love Bugs that visit twice a year.
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.
Created while preparing for a class while at the Colony Cottage Recreation Center.
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.
Inspired by the Bales Puf pattern.
This was the wallpaper in the MUV store.
I loved it so much I created this pattern.
.This is the wallpaper that inspired me to draw MUV

While the service technician was at my home, I created this pattern so I named it after him.
Makes a nice embellishment or tangle filler.
Hugging C's with an Aura, thus the name Hugora.
Inspired by the pattern on my bathrobe.
While being taught the pattern Stella by Trish O'Leary, CZT, I was inspired to create this pattern. The "ish" part of Coolishella is named after Trish. "ella" after the pattern Stella, and "cool", just cuz I think it's cool!
It's hard to see, but we used this pattern as a string on this Zendala.
At line dance class I admired a pink shirt that someone had on with a pattern that resembles this.
Created this pattern on Memorial Day 2021 which is why I named it Memori. Wasn't trying to create a pattern, it just happened as always.
Created this pattern on July 11, 2021 (7/11/21). I find that the numbers 7 and 11 come up often for me and are good luck.
Created this pattern while sitting in my lanai.
Decided to combine Printemps & Emingle together.

I created this pattern right after I found out my cat had cancer and it was time to say good bye to her. I needed to relax, so started tangling, and this is what happened. Xaler is relax spelled backwards.
Wobbly Well was invented when I was trying to copy a pattern that I did not know the name of or have the step-out too. Come to find out years later that it was the pattern Well.
This is Wobbly Well put into a funky square shape. I call it Wild Wild Well.
After creating Wild Wild Well, I put it into a grid.
I named this the Forgotten tangle because I totally forgot I created this until I opened up my sketchbook that it was in about a year or 2 later.
I named this Silvier because it was the pattern on a silver chandelier that was hanging in my line dance class.
After participating in a Play Movement class at Kripalu Retreat Center in the Berkshires (MA), we were instructed reflect on the experience through writing or drawing and this is what I came up with. "Play" for the movement class and "lu" for Kripalu.
