My tangle pattern: Zanella

The Phrontistery describes the word Zanella as 'mixed twilled umbrella fabric'.  This pattern sort of makes me think of looking down at a sidewalk cafe, at umbrella tops. 

I could have shown this with fewer steps, but I thought the lines might confuse the eye, so I did the long version.

    Yes, I commented that there was something "fishy" going on with the site but it now appears the fish have disappeared!

    Hey hey, congratulations, your Jack and the Beanstalk won an award over on FlickR. Yahoo!

  6. Thank you all!

    Sorry about the busy background. I was playing with the new template designer, trying out different setups. Then I had to leave, and never got back to it. I'm going to have to do up something like that fish design though. Who wouldn't love a zendoodle full of fish skeletons?

    Thanks for the congrats. The Fotovotr group seems to have discovered me. Kinda nice to open up my Flickr acct and find all those ruby red icons!

  7. Hi, I just came across your site and saw the Zanella pattern. I named my daughter Zanella, she loves doing zentangles too, I will have to show her that she has her very own pattern. Beautiful artwork!

    1. I hope your daughter enjoys the pattern. It's one of my favorites!
