1. Zentangle Basic Class One: way, No. 2. Introduction: Hello there. Welcome to my art of entangles class on skill share. This is my second class and I'm I am blown away by the, uh, kindness of all of you watching my first class. Now, if you're here for the first time, I would recommend that you take the first class because that I gave you the basics. I am not going to continue with all of the details that I gave you in the first class from now on, because that was meant for basics. But I will. I will give you details but not a zoo in debt that I did of in the first quest. So with my second class, I have upped the challenge for you. Yes. Challenging challenges of fun. Yes, it is. So I am so excited to teach you this class. I have four tangles to teach you on one tile. A small tile to so yes, you could do it. No, no, don't be scared. I'll take you a step by step. So, uh, I wanted to welcome you. I wanted to give you this introduction video. Say hi. Now, if you look to, uh, to my left, you'll see a Well, depending on where you're seeing it, there is a picture behind me eating my right and my left. But that is one of my paintings that I did. We call that these entangle inspired disentangle or trying to get the words out quick. Fast. Yeah, it's hard. But hey, you know, we will make the six. But getting back to my painting what I started before I did sent angles. I did mixed media art so that background is basically a mixed media art. It's really fun to dio and that create colors with designs of of spray ink on stencils and stamps. And then what I did is that I cut out one of my so those of my Zankel was entangled designs and collaged it over the background of the mixed media art on a I'm going to get to teach you something like that, too. Yes, we'll get there step by step, but does real quickly. Let me just show you again. Now, in the beginning of the first place, I told you you could just use a copy paper on pencil. But if you're getting into it now and you're in my second class, you might want to invest in some some supplies that we use, and I'm going to quickly show you this is a V pen that is highly recommended for from zen tangle dot com. Those are the people who certify me to teach you and this is a secure s a que no excuse me s a k u r a 01 micron pen it is gives you the best show up lines that you could get on. All you need to do was hold it and lightly. Don't press down tightly on this because then the pen will will lose its value of the ANC, and it will stop. It will take away the ink on the page, but it's not. It's still there. It's just that when you press down, it causes that problem. So you need to relax your hand. That's what you need to do. You have to relax it. And because this is the best pendant use. But if you choose, this is the second a good pen. This is the same made by the same company. Also recommended by the, uh is entangle instructors. But this isn't no. Five. So the ink is a little bit more friendly to use. And you if you press hard, it still works well. And And the other two will be the pencil and and the paper stuff which were used for shading arts entangles if you saw that on the first video. And here is the pencil sharpener that says it. All right. Okay. So I want to remind you that I do, um I have it here. Over here. This I I teach. I sell this on my website. It contains over those pencils and pens that I showed you just now. Also, two tiles may with very good Italian, made a paper in both, uh, 3.5 squares and And what end? 5.5 squares. And I get to each in this in this kit, and I charged $15. So you can also get your your kids at Amazon or a Seymour hobby lobby. Uh, Joan's and, um, Michael's. So Okay, I have nothing more to say, but I'm just ready to give you your class, So enjoy yourself. And please remember to share your work on the projects in before and show me what you're doing. I really want to see what you're doing. I want to know that I'm teaching you, okay? And the other students want to see you too. Okay, so I'll see you while you're my hands will see you in my next video by 3. Video Demo #1 Betweed: although students were ready to store. Well, if you have noticed, I changed my my from my iPhone to my iPad. I rigged up something that I could put my iPad on and hold it. So it's down facing downwards, and you can see May. And I think it's a better picture. So Okay, you have to learn by your mistakes. That's what I've been preaching all this time since the last first class. So I will continue the preaching because we're not perfect. And we just keep on learning. And that's what makes our brain healthy. Okay. All right. Oh, let's forget about all that. So let's start work going to do our relax ation first, because you know how important that is. I don't know about you, but I am feeling uptight. With all this preparation, I need to relax. So what we're going to do is we're gonna face are palms upwards. And as we breathing through our knows, we're going to hold our fist closed. And when we breathe out through our math, open up. We're going to do that twice. Okay, here we go. Wiggle those fingers. Get them ready to go. How I feel better Roquette already. Okay, here's our 3.5 by 3.5 tile. And here is my pencil. And I am going to create our first design. We call that allow the string. Oh, so today string is gonna be a course from here to here. So you take your pencil. I'm comfortable. Starting right years. You're going to go from here. Oh, way up to there. Like I said before, it doesn't have to be straight. Andi and we have unequal four parts. And so if you guessed it, we're going to do four tangles today. I'm up in the challenge. Okay? We're going to get our pen. I put it there and we're going to do our first tangle. The tanker was called a between spelled B E T W E Day. This is one of my favorite. At first I couldn't get the hang of it, but when I figured it out, I can't stop doing it. I think you're probably all gonna feel the same way. It's really very simple, but what it creates, it's amazing. So let me show you got to go from the middle right here, and you're going to create a line straight down. Now you're using your pen. Okay? Turning the ram and you go and make a course is somewhere in the middle. Create another line and go straight. Of course. Okay, so now we have a course. Now we want to create another. Of course. So we're going to go on this way and go straight through the middle and till we get to the end of the other lines, So we want it all to be in one sighs, and we go to the other side in the middle and go to that line. So this is what it should be looked. It looks like first the course on one side. And then, of course, on the seconds other side. And that will create 12345678 sections. And we're going to do the same thing in each of the sections. So let me show you what you're doing from the bottom off. Let me get myself comfy here. From the bottom of the of this first line, we're going to go to the right so good. Put, put in line up just 3/4 of the way up. Okay? We're gonna meet that on the other side the same way. 3/4. See that? Let's do it again. The recorders and we always start from the safe spot the re quarters. See how it's making a darker Could you keep on starting from the same spot and 3/4 that's ended just there. OK, turned around. Do the same thing on the next section. Wait up. Just like that. Just like that. All right, let's end it there. There's no rhyme and reason of where you ended. Whatever it looks right to you, you know, one overdo it, cause it just it'll take away from its shape. So ended. Now, we'll start the same way. This is a longer one, so it's gonna be a little different shape on. There we go up here. Whoops. Here we go. Okay. Turn it to the right. It's do the next one. I guess you're seeing what it looks like. Look at that. Isn't that meat? Just by making those lines, I find these tangles of fascinating, so fascinating have the create these simple lines would just one line matching the others and you create a design like this. Totally amazing. I hope you're relaxed. I'm starting to get relaxed. It's been one of those days. Rushing, rushing, rushing. All right, 3/4 on. We'll end there. Hey, we got one more to go. Let's go for it. Okay. Now you're holding your head nice and lightly. You're very comfortable. And just sitting and your hands arrested comfortably on the table. So look at that. Look what we just created. Amazing, huh? All right, we're going to go to the second video. See you there. 4. Video Demo #2 Cadent: All right, I'm back. So what are we going to do now? All right, let me show you something interesting. Let's it doesn't matter where you want to do it if you want to do with every here or here or here. But I'm going to start that to the it's to my right over here. It's probably you're seeing at the opposite, but it's to my right, and we're going to start it. We're doing We're going to do little circles all the way, of course here. So let me show you how it goes. This one is called K. Did it c a D E N T. This is another amazing tangled just by creating lines and curves. We're gonna do some curves this time. So do one circle. Don't have it about an inch apart. Okay, about an inch support. We could squeeze one in there. Okay, I was squeezed one in there also, So we're going to go all the way down and rose completely following straight down from the first circle. So let's do the second low roe. And again the bad an inch. Maybe an inch in the quarter, not too much. And now if you know this, we ran out of room. Fine. We're going to run out the room. Eventually. As you see, this is going to give thin there as we go down. But that's that's exactly what I want to dio. So it was store to here again and make more circles, little circles. And this will be the last one for this Roof said. Now we just have to keep on going. Ongoing on We're losing Rose here, as you can see. Right. All right, here we go. Keep on going. Whoops. I got little dork, but that's OK. It'll work out, okay? We don't We ran out of room, okay, So what, we're going to Dio we're going to turn it in the opposite direction. So there are first between is in top of it and then arose of circles are going downward. This is where we're going to start now. Live watches carefully. We're creating s is, like in San the letter s and we're going to start from the first circle making s and ended around the second circle, and I will start from the second circle and making us and ended around the next circle and we're going to do the same thing all the way around. Make the curvy ISS s. You can if it's wacky. That's okay, Mike. It's wacky. After a while, sometimes if I'm really concentrating like I am now because I want to show you the best way if I'm doing this on my own sometimes if just for relaxing. I'm not looking for perfection. I'm never looking for perfection, obviously, but at the same time, I wanted to do with the best way I can. And of course, the more practice you have, the better you get at it. And, you know, I'm gonna tell you a little secret. There are some people that could just get this immediately and do it perfect. And I'm so happy for them. But I'm not one of those people. There were a lot of, um, the women, mostly women in my training class. When I was certified, some of their work was just fantastic, but they had an art background. That's why I didn't have a note that Graham I make mistakes, and at first I was kind of upset about it because I felt like I wasn't as good as everyone else. That's my inner critic talking. And it took me a while to realize that we're all going to be doing ours entangles and our tangles differently. They're all not going to be perfect. And not only that, the more you do it, the better you get at the way you do it. It still may not be like that artist who had four years of or training in college. But it doesnt Mather, because you're creating the same design. It's just not you're not doing it in the sharpest way that that person with the north treating condone it. Just ignore that phone. That phone doesn't stop ringing. And I I don't know about you that you will get these phones for people calling all the time . I wish I could get rid of the landline, but my husband doesn't want to, so I'm dealing with it. So I'm sorry about that film ring, and it will stop shortly. So Okay, if you know this, we did all the rows. So now we're going to do it on the other side. So turn it So you see all the roads going this way, you're going to start creating your s is going this way So let me show you how it goes You make It s here and you end it and the other circle and make another s And you end it another s and you end it another s another s another s and do one more to the end There. There you go. What we bought finished the road down and here we go to the next row. Are you getting to see the pattern? Look at that. Is that neat? It even looks even better after you shaded Just wait, Do you see it? It is fascinating. Okay, here we go with next. We're just finishing up. Arres is down the other side and I'm not turning this off. I want you to see everything I'm doing now. If you notice I made another circle the of the end because I I just think it it We needed one. It was just my You'll have to do if you don't want to. It is something that I just felt I needed to do. My creativity. I'm starting to trust it and let it go where it wants to go. Okay. A couple more s is and we're gonna be done. So do you want here? You know what? I'm going to create a little circle there in a little circle here and create another s. I just think it needed it. I wanted to give it unending of some sort. I think I'm going to do one here, too. And create another s just filling it in. You could do the same thing if you want to. I want to fill it into the end of the square. I just think it looks neat. All right, so when you look at it, look at that. Turner. The route. Different ways. Can you see how it hell it looks? Isn't that amazing? All right, we're going to go to our next video. See, then 5. Video Demo #3 Hollibaugh: Okay, here we are. We're back, so all right, I am going to do hall a ble and you spell that H o l l i b a u g h So we pick up our pen. This is second a simple, but it's simple, but interesting. We're going to create that started line. We're gonna use Thea. Whatever one you want to use either this of this on whether use this Ah, quarter of our square. And I'm gonna create online anywhere you want, Teoh from one ending toe another and then create another line close to it. Okay? And so now you're gonna create another line. But the difference is here. You're stopping right at that first line. Then you're going to pick up your pen and continue on to the end, and then do another line next to it. Stop it and then started again. Whoops. All right, Onda. See, you're creating. You're creating lines that are behind each other. Let's just keep on doing a few more lines. I'm gonna have him go through. You can do it exactly the way I'm doing. Or you can do it in your own way. You see there behind the other line. So I'm going to go this way. I could just keep on stopping and then starting stopping and starting. All right, I want to do some more in the other angle. So let's see. Let's do it from here to here. Let's do one all the way through. Give a little line there, a little line there and all the way through. Let's put it this way. It's a little thicker that's going all the way. So it looks like it's going underneath. The K did. Hi. Um, let's see. I want to create another line going this way. So gonna go cross, Pick it up where you think it should be and pick it up on. Do that, squeeze it in their squeeze it in there, see? It's behind it. And let's do one more. Maybe a few more. We'll see. All right, let's start. It's do one this way and there. And it There. Do one next to it. Ended there. Andi, let's do one over here. I can cover up my mistake a little bit, so it doesn't look that bad. Okay. Oh, I'm going to do one more over here. It doesn't have to end. Although it ends to where you feel it needs to end. Mine's going all the way down because that's what my my hand started doing. All right, We got all of our how about lines? Oh, on top of each other. So what we're going to do now is color. We're coloring in all of the negative space between the lines, so that will make the lines popped out. So here is it that that's online. So we're gonna This is a negative space. So we're gonna cover the negative space here. Here's another negative space, right? Yours might be different than mine. So you have to find your own negative spaces. Here is one over here. Just cover then, until you don't see anymore white spots. Okay, I'm just going to go down this line and show you all my negative spaces along this line, and then I'm going to turn this off and you're we're going to finish it on our own because it's just going to make way too long of a video. And I don't think you'll want to watch me coloring when you were going to do in your own coloring. It's a waste of space and time. So let me just finish this one. Now, if you go over your line, just make your line. Just just create more space. So So let's say if you went over this, so just make this a little thinner over here to cover your mistake. And here's one more negative line. Then I'm coloring, and it's right next to the cadence kind of going under the cave in. Okay, you see what it was doing. Now I have another negative space. Right here. Here, here, here, here, here, here, here, Here. You see it? So wherever you have your negative space, I want you the color then and we'll be back after we're done. Okay. By 6. Video Demo #4 Mooka: Okay, we're back. Here's mine. All color than and, uh, sometimes what I dio is I, uh, crazy little interest on the lines. So, for example, for the line here. And a couple dots and another line online and the couple dots on the line and a couple dots . Onda, I might do those same thing here on. Let's see that. Still one over here. All right. I don't want to overdo it. That's enough. All right, so we're ready to do our last tangle. And there last one is cold. What do we call this one? It's a nuka m o. Okay. Now, hell, we start the muka, We start from the bottom, your bottom off the tile and going up. So we're going to take on line like this and go around and around, make a circle and and it Okay, do another one going in the other direction, but lower. So go. Go like this. Make a circle and end. All right. It's still another one going in the other direction and fitting it in where it can. And it's still a small one right here. There you go. Now I'm going to fill in the sides a little bit. So do one out this way on one out this way, everyone's Nuka looks different. I think I we can add one from here if you want Teoh and add one going in the opposite direction. From here. You do anything you want. It's your Muka. Go for All right, So there we go. I finished the muka and how we're going to end. This Muga is covering it all with circles. So watch what I'm doing. I'm going to start with this 1st 1 and we're gonna go all around the line of the 1st 1 That could be depending on how much space you have Could be small circles and go into tiny little tiny circles all the way down. Oh, the way down. All right, now, we could start from this one and just go all the way to the tip of that circle and I'm back down tip of the muka. I mean and down. And it's filling the negative space here, and it's filling the negative space here. So what we're doing is we're filling in the inside of the Muka with circles. Kind of like what we did the hall about instead of coloring it, we're using circles. So we go all the way down. I found you find a spot that empty Phil was circling. Okay, let's start over here and do this port this V hard, but it comes down and then back up. Okay, that's fill it in here. Go around the top of this. When I said, how about before I met Muka? Sorry to up through this move. Good to meet and around this one all the way around, filling the circles as you can and fill in the center port. And it's still one over here. Go up this, Muka, and aside till it reaches. And I think we're going to go finish this one and do this circle all the way around. When? There. When you have more room, you could make little bigger circles and then squeeze them. And as you go down now, you can do it over here to on the back and of the muka, and then do it over. Turn your you know, turn your tile around where it's comfortable for you, the work, and do it from the back and just do keep on doing circles. All right, and there are a circles around on Luca. All right, I, um, going to come back one last time and we're gonna do the shading, and then we will be done. See you soon. 7. Video Demo #5 Shading/Ending: Okay, We're going to do the shading. Always close your pens when you're done with it, because it will lose its draw. It'll dry out the ink. So then we find my pencil and my paper stump. So let's start with the Caden. So we're gonna go on this side with kay. That what we're doing? I'm going to show it to you in your direction so you can see what I'm doing. Hopefully this anywhere that you this should this should be shaded right where it's hard to explain. Right where you believe it's under something. You want to shade it. You see where I'm going Here. This is under. We're just doing one side right now. We're not worrying about the other side, and we're just putting a little pencil mark down here just under it, okay? And then we're gonna take our hold it sideways and lightly pushed the pencil around. If you miss the part, you can always fill it in because you still have a pen pencil on your on your paper of stump from the previous smudging. See how it made it, pop. See? Okay, Now we're going to do the other side. I turned it to the opposite direction. We would do the same thing right in this little open circle area. You're just gonna put a little bit of of a pencil mark. Okay, sometimes they're hard to see, but you'll get it right. You'll get it. It's going to do that basically, going down the line each line. So what? You could pull you could go with a straight line while you're pulling the pencil through. It's basically that's what you can dio and that's discovered the steward line right at the end here that's going near the between and give a little separation with a shading right there. Make a pop out from the between okay? And do the same thing on the other side, where it's next to the Jalabad and just a line all the way through. And just with small little circles. Pull it all the way down, okay? And you could do it up the end. You don't even have to put a collar on it. Just make it lightly. Here you go. You see the difference. It's in that amazing look at that. Okay, let's go over to the whole about. This is really simple anywhere where the lines are underneath. You're going to cover on both sides with a light pencil everywhere where it's underneath, because it's going to be darker there because it's under neath. It's the other line. So that's where you want to put the shading. I think I got it all. All right, so let's just do a little pulling of our shading just slightly. Don't ever do it. Remember I told you in the first class you need to leave white spots because that is what makes it pop and shows. That's the purpose of he's shading. All right, so we're gonna go down this line where the Muka is and just do the same thing we did before . Justin kind of separate. So basically, we're gonna have all the lines shaded. All right, so now let's let's do the muka saving. I like to do the very tip of each muka a little line that will little smudge a pencil. Then take your paper stump and move of the round. I knew that smudge around. Okay, I'm going to do a little bit at the bottom here. Bring that up a little bit. That's the bottom of your Muka. Okay? I really don't think it needs that much more. I don't want to overdo the I want to do this line. So that's just go down and do it. The the in between line, it gives a nice look. So we have all the the X now covered with shaving. Okay, so we got that done. I think that's a battle we need. You can. You could pull it down a little bit more if you want to. Down the muka. The little top port poured them a little bit. Just a little bit to cover a little bit more of the muka. Okay, here we go. You want Teoh? You can cover the bottom of it like this on both sides and bring it up a little. Okay. There you go. All right, let's do that between now. This is what I like in the between. I do the middle and then you see the the lie, the separations. Right here. I put the line down each each area. See where these lines meet. That's where I put the line right down the middle. Go all the way around and we've got one more. And then you take your paper stump and just go a little bit over it and smudged the middle . That's it. Okay. So what do you think? Turn it around. Decide which way You like it to be the top port. You know what? I think I like this, Actually, I like the movie to be on the bottom. You know what? It looks a little off balance. So what? I'm like, what am I gonna do? Let's see. Let's add a little courses. Let me show you what I'm going to dio It needs to be covered here. It looks off balance. So I'm going to do, of course like this. Of course, like this. This is my little filling stuff. I do a circle in the middle. A circle circle. I'm not even sure. I think this is probably a a tangle. Be honest. I don't remember. I just started doing this on my own, sometimes to fill in areas that I think that needs to be filled in my, uh, my way of doing things. I like my areas to be filled in and just show a little bit of white. I like to cover everything some people like open areas, and that's fine. This is my style. Now, if you liked it the way it waas than keep it, don't do this. I'm just doing a couple of them. Just fill. Then it just feels like a needed some balance. It looked off balance. So now that I finished it, let's see what it looks like now. I like that better. Yes, I dio And I think I like the I like the whole but on the bottom. And now it looks better. Now you could, um you could say these if you want. Just put a little bit of a smudge of pencil in the middle of each and the smudge. Um, here we go. So now if you saw the first video, you know what's last thing we dio is that we hold it out and we admire it. Always admire your work because you have the artists and I think we all did a good job. Now you would never put it on on the forum for me so I could see what you're doing. So now we're going to do our what do we call it now? A chop? My chop is a J. I'm gonna put it right here. The J I put it s here and a d here. And then I put the year 2018. That's my little chop. Okay. And then we turn to the ramp minus empty. If you have one of my tiles I'm using a I cut up pieces for for the class is just for practice. I don't use my good paper because it does. It's not necessary.
