Patterns

In this category you’ll find various tangle and doodle patterns. Some will be step-by-step tutorials, others just variations of patterns I’ve seen elsewhere on the internet (in these cases I’ll post links to the site where I found the instructions).

Geometric doodle pattern 1

An easy to do geometric doodle pattern. I think grid based patterns are very suitable for beginners – you just have to fill in the squares repeatedly with simple lines and you get interesting intricate shapes. And when you color them in you get lovely patterns. The black pen is Faber-Castell PITT artist pen size S and the color ones are United Office Fineliner pens: pink, dark green and light green. I plan on making a bookmark with this pattern and when it’s done I’ll post a picture.

Border Pattern #2 Tutorial

Another zentangle border pattern tutorial. This one is suitable for designs and drawings with straight lines.

A useful tip: if you want to make a line even finer – just barely touch the pen tip to the paper when you draw. I did the smaller lines around the petals this way since even the 0.1 pen I used for them makes too thick a line for such a limited space. You can’t really see the difference in the video, but it is there.
I used three different sizes of pens for this one – Faber-Castell PITT artist pens sizes F (for the outlines) and S (for the petals) and Uni Pin Fine Line 0.1 for the small lines.
You can make the arches as big or as small as you want. You’ll notice the last two are a bit smaller – adapt the size to your own preferences.
