New Tangle "_____"

We have a new tangle!

As we said in this newsletter, this time we're trying something a bit different.

You get to name it. Post your suggestions below. The winner will receive a set of Zentangle Coasters.

You get to deconstruct it. It you figure out first how it's done (there are hints on the newsletter) we'll also send you a set of Zentangle Coasters. Just post a link to an image of your "step-out" instructions in your reply to this blog.

Here are a few of the newsletter images.







We'll post the instructions and the winners in about a week in our newsletter.

Note:
We'll need a way to contact the winners. So if you are posting as "anonymous" we won't be able to contact you.

Have fun!

The first name that comes to mind is "Brain Flow." That's exactly how I feel when I'm tangling.

Maegen said...

Celtic knot. I love it!!!

I like this new tangle. They look like super versions of Celtic Knots to me. "knot-to-be" means that you are in the process of having the lines become a knot; existence.

This is fun!
I would call it Aurabaugh Plexus.
Pleaxus meaning a network or interlacement; a complication of structures.

maudiemay said...

It is a 'log cabin'.
This is an old quilt pattern, done by starting with a square,representing the hearth or fire, then laying logs around the square. There are many variations of this pattern, just like your tangle. I suspect your pattern is done the same way but I have no way of scanning my zentangle. Everyone will have loads of fun doing this one.

texasbarb said...

My first impression was a Celtic Knot...so a play on words...something like Kltik or something similar.

under wonder! is step is under the one before it.

Barbara Leonard said...

Chaos to clarity and back.

Amy said...

It reminds me of a maze so I chose AmaZen

Sorry- plexus in the definition was misspelled it should be Plexus.

Carmen

Sharon said...

I suggest "Vari-corn", for a variable number of corners! Thank you for the many possibilities.

tangledbirdie said...

Really loving this new tangle. Think a good name would be "Collide". When lines collide, you get beautiful tangles!

Maria Paray said...

They all seem to have lots of depth - first name that came to mind was Deeper.

Therese Yonikus said...

It does look like a celtic knot but can transform into so may beautiful variations so I suggest: CELTIC MUSE as the name for this new tangle.

Mattie Arnold said...

Yes celtic knot so how about AuraKnot

hogwildquilting@gmail.com

Kemma said...

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was "bandages" it also reminds me of "iris folding" so those would be my suggestions.
Thanks

My first thought was,
"Mizuhiki Tangled".

PJ Waldrop said...

Due to the timing as well as how it is made, I recommend to name it: Stars and Stripes.
How better to celebrate the 4th of July.

Sue Maglietta said...

CHRYSALIS after the wonderful quilts created by Maria McCormick-Snyder in the 1980's

Joni said...

This is a very cool tangle and reminds me of "hibred", however it is a bit more classy so lets call it
"thoroughbred".

KarenB said...

"Interchange" because it makes me think of a freeway interchange gone wild! Very cool

jobat said...

Hollibaura

Amy in TN said...

Citronica is my suggested name. I'll explain later!!!
I am away from home and can't post efficiently; I will send my stepouts vis a forwarded email...that's the best I can do right now!
Amy in TN

DR said...

How about "holla" cross between Aura and Hollibaugh! This tangle does 'holla' at ya! LOL
Unfortunately, I can't scan at this time. But I like this one! :)

Dawn Jackson said...

This pattern immediately reminded me of Hollibaugh and Hibred so I called it Hollibred.

Lana Cockbill said...

It goes here and there and so many places!

I'd call it "meander"...

LanaC

Zachary said...

Just posted my "step-out":

http://createdtodesign.blogspot.com/2012/06/new-tangle.html

I'm not sure if anyone beat me to it, but there it is anyway. I had fun! Thanks for the challenge, Rick and Maria! I still have to think of a name...

Dianne said...

Like most people, it reminds me of a knot, so I came up with R-Knot. I also like Amy's 'AmaZen.' Cool tangle:) Can't wait to see how it's done!

Sharon said...

Here is my step out for the new tangle! Lots of fun..."Vari-corn"??
http://sharonartbydesign.blogspot.com/2012/06/new-tangle-step-out.html

diana1955 said...

This tangle reminds me of a quilt design called "log cabin." So that is my suggestion: Log Cabin.

Sue Jacobs CZT said...

I got a set of step outs done too - But I haven't looked at the other ones above me yet. What fun!!!
Some of the names above are great!
http://suejacobs.blogspot.com/2012/06/new-tangle-challenge.html

KindleLover said...

To me it looks like wrappings or weavings. "Moirai" is another word for Fate, as is "Providence". I also like "Wholecloth".

Primitive Seasons said...

Layered Tulips

Sue Clark said...

I don't have time right now, to figure out the steps, but since it looks like a maze and I am always "Zenmazed" at your tangles, that's my name suggestion. Fun looking tangle and post!

Anonymous said...

Mingles. Not only are the lines and angles mingling, but this tangle mingles well with others such as Mooka.

Rose Cowan said...

With it being comprised of corners and angles, the combination name of "Corangle" comes to mind.

K(Banterings of a Basketcase) said...

Im with Maudi may....

Natureluvr57 said...

ZenTemari because it reminds me of The Japanese Thread Balls. Yes, I agree it also reminds me of Celtic Knots also. Love seeing new Zentangle elements!

Megan said...

TriniStar

Since it resembles both a star and the Celtic trinity symbol.

Sioux said...

I agree it looks like a log cabin quilt square. How about "LOQUILT"

My step-out directions are posted here: (it will be the last picture in the gallery)
http://www.cafecrop.com/gallery/pictures-zentangle/

I have not looked at anyone else's to see if we came up with the same thing! This was a fun challenge.

For a name: QLTZ (quilt - as in a quilt pattern or it looks like an iris folded card!)

Tina C., CZT7

Barb R. said...

I love the expandability of this tangle - even though I am far from having figured it out. I was struck by the woven quality and variety of starry shapes, so my suggestion is "Starweave".

Anonymous said...

My name choice is "Crazy."

falcon5 said...

Celtic Knot is certainly the inspiration I think. The fabulous "over and under" process that would keep anyone's brain focused for hours. Some variation on Celtic NOT!
John Christofferson

Nancy Lubin CZT said...

(celtic) conundrum or CC for short

Shelly Beauch said...

Stellar.....because your new tangle is both outstanding and a brilliant star. Such fun!

Carol said...

Two names come to mind: first, "Log Cabin," after the traditional quilting pattern it loosely resembles.

And also, "Steppes," for "Courthouse Steps," the name of a Log Cabin variation.

Now I've got to sit down and try it! :-)

Claire Meggs said...

How about "Line-a-Lot" a little play on words for the build up of linear forms....

Barb of the Tangles said...

I, too, figured it out pretty easily with just three points. But my cap goes off to cafe crop for figuring the 5 points. Good job!

Kristaphi said...

The first thing I thought of was the way I start some baskets. How about "bask-it"? This tangle makes me want to stretch out and Zentangle on a warm, sunny deck.

Lesley S-G said...

I could get lost in this one and it's tanglations for days! As complicated as it looks, for me it just comes down to "In-tangle".

Majka said...

This looks like the delicate weaving of a bird's nest. So, I'd suggest Nezt.

bren said...

this reminds me of a ham radio signal -help- s.o.s- just though it sounded good .

Here's my take on how its done:
http://erinsparler.com/blog/2012/06/zentangle-deconstruction/

Lynde said...

"Ball of Yarn"

Carol Maynard said...

In-zen-ity

Noodle said...

"Sydney," because it evokes the Sydney Opera House.

bluelapis said...

I would call it "Quasar" since it lends itself so readily to forming stars.

Janet said...

A title based on the process of creating this pattern could certainly be "TurnTile" :)

Anonymous said...

"Zen Reeds" just come to mind, as it reminds me of basket weaving, which is done with reeds.

Pennyb said...

I immediately saw paradox and a celtic knot....so I've used these names and your "hints" to create HOLLIDOXAT!

Mariƫt said...

I would like to name this new tangle "Surprise" because it was a real surprise to find this challenge in the newsletter.

http://studio-ml.blogspot.nl/2012/06/new-tangle.html

Mary G. said...

Zenternal (reminds me of Celtic Eternity Knots)

Kat Cashwell said...

I love this new zentanlge and it reminds me a never ending staircase. I would call it "stairtangle" Thanks so much for Zentangle! kat

SheriV said...

Celtic Array

dollarfive said...

I see a quilt pattern also--though not the Log Cabin, but its cousin, Courthouse Steps. So my name for the new tangle is "Stepped In It."

Judi and Luke said...

Luke actually figured this one out! I'm not surprised, although he may have had an advantage. We would call it "Point of Zenterest"

Joyce Block CZT said...

I think it should be Not-a-Knot.

Jakki said...

I would call it "Eyrish ?" for Irish Question - guess it is my English background coming to the fore!

Mary Ann said...

This so reminds me of a quilt I'm making right now that is called French Braid pattern ..and , also, French Braid hairstyles. Mary Ann

Amberlee said...

Forget Me Knots

EscherTangle

Zen-Escher

Maized

It really reminds me of something Escher would have tangled

Janet said...

I see the log cabin as stated above and it has a very Celtic interwoven knot feel to it so if you combine the two you'd have Celbin or Clabin or Cabelt. I can't wait to see the steps. I don't think I can do it without a pencil and eraser! :-)

Robin said...

Love it, am going to try it right now. For a name, how about Inter-lochen. Spelled w/an "h" so it sounds more Celtic.

Allison L. said...

This elegantly simple tangle seems to grow inward, as we all do when we practice mindfulness, so my suggestion for an equally simple name is GrIn, for Growing Inward.

issmayonglay@gmail.com

Sheree said...

How about Celtic Tangle?

chickycat said...

Okay did not see my comment post so am going to try again.
I think this looks like a cross between Celtic Knotwork and Basketweave. So how about Celbweave.
Cat at crystalwolfsings@yahoo.com

Lynde said...

Now that I look more closely it reminds me how I construct a "Log Cabin". Might be a good name, drawn log cabin instead of quilted one.

Lesley S-G said...

I can't get this tangle out of my head - all I want to do is draw more! Hope you don't mind if I suggest another name, based on what I thinkare the 2 most important steps..."In-tern"! Thanks for all the fun, Rick & Maria!

judy hanna said...

I am new to zentangle but am definitely hooked. This new tangle made me think of two things. One thought would be "noodles" and the other would be "pick up sticks".

judy

Lois Heinani Stokes said...

There are two moves in this tangle as I see it. Around (aura) and Under (Hollibaugh). arunder is the name that I give it.

Melanye Narcarti said...

It reminds me of steps. I would call it Stepn.

The girl with the strong back said...

I agree with all of the comparisons to Celtic knotwork. Since we have a Hollibaugh … why not Gobraugh (forever)?

Holly Moseley said...

Someone already posted this, so I give my vote for "Log Cabin".

Anonymous said...

Hi, this is Jodi Ferrini.

(I thought i had posted a comment through my google account, but it didn't show up, so if this duplicated, I apologize!)

My vote is "Betwisted" or "Be-twisted" or some variation of that. It reminded me of Betweed but it looks like it's all twisted up together.

PJ Waldrop said...

I had recomended a name because of the forth and the way it looks of Stars and Stripes. Take a look at my blog to see my tanglation trying to figure out the directions. http://pjwaldropstudios.blogspot.com/

Tricky and fun!

Jeanne Kero said...

I think it's CHEEKY. See why...
Also, here's a "step-out" for any number of points.

Maricka. :oD

Zentangle said...

Congrats to JEANNE KERO for figuring out the step-out we used!

We'll have a newsletter out next week with more details.

While other approaches can accomplish a similar result on some forms, this approach gives you a lot of freedom and opportunities for creative tangleations.

Thank you to ALL who played!

We will announce the name in our next newsletter.

Stay tuned . . .!

Rachel said...

I like the name
Unbe-weave-able!

Jeanne Kero said...

WOO-HOO! I got the "step-out" right!

My husband said it should be named, Roundabout... roundabouts are tricky for us mid-westerners but once you figure it out it's smooth 'sailin.'

I finally got my NEW tangles completed and posted.

Daniele OBrien Design, CZT said...

Love this new tangle, it's addictive and challenging. Congrats to my fellow CZT Jeanne kero for winning the step-out challenge!

This tangle reminds me of a woven Celtic knot so I'm leaning towards Knot-wot for the name.

Bobbi Jean Aker said...

Congrats Jeanne Kero!!!! What name shall it be I
Wonxer?

Karen Lynn said...

Hmm... Looks like I'm late to the game! I'm sending my instructions, even though Jeanne has already got them right, because my approach is a little different.

I would name it Tri-tweed, because, at least in my version :-), it's a combination of a triangle and celtic knot, (which are also symbols of the Trinity), and it uses the between style of filling in.

AlwaysBelieve said...

I have really enjoyed deconstructing this tangle. Like others, it reminds me of Celtic Knots. The trinity knot is very special to me and with the unlimited number of corners one can make with this tangle, I thought of combining Infinite and Trinity. So I thought either "Trinfinite," "Trinfinity" or "Trinfini-T"
Thank you for the extra fun this week! Nicole (nicolealwaysbelieves@gmail.com)

Suzanne said...

I would call it Wyka (Bostonian for Wicker) it reminds me of the furniture weave

Amy in TN said...

At last, I finally have my primitive version of step-outs for this tangle posted to my blog...now I can start checking out how everyone else broke it down and diagrammed this great new tangle!

I misspelled the name I proposed for this tangle when I posted last week (aack!). I suggest "Cintronica" (not "Citronica," as I had written in that previous comment), after Tina Cintron, who presents a way to draw Celtic knots on one of her instructional DVDs. It was from her DVD that I learned of a configuration of lines she called "Headless Dancing Man" that is a square with extended sides, which can serve as a base for the 4-sided version of this tangle. In October 2010 I showed the CZT 4 seminar how to draw simple Celtic knots using Headless Dancing Man, so that's why I'd like to honor Tina Cintron. I, too, agree that this tangle also has a strong relationship with the log cabin quilt block, so I added "ca" to the end of my name to stand for CAbin. (I added the "i" just because I though it sounded more graceful than "Cintronca.")

You can see my version of the step outs at my tanglefish blog:

Amy in TN said...

Now that I have seen the step-outs that others posted, I am indeed laughing at myself!!! When I was trying to deconstruct the tangle, I could not see that there was one strand that was completely on top of all the others (like Hollibaugh, duh!) and was determined to figure out how to build this tangle using Headless Dancing Man and related configurations. I simply couldn't figure out any other way.
Congratulations, Jeanne!

Given my folly, Cintronica is NOT the best name for this tangle...there are a bunch of other names that have been suggested that I love, though. I like the names that are not too specific to a pre-conceived image, so if it were up to me, I'd be choosing from the following possibilities: Plexus, Temari, Mizuhiki, Conundrum, Moirai, Providence, Stellar, Bask, Zenternal, and Betwist.

GinaA said...

I may be a little late with this but only saw it yesterday and was intrigued. I have posted what I think is how it is drawn and suggest 'StepR' as a name as it looks like a continuous set of steps to me. Looking forward to seeing how it is really drawn.

Anonymous said...

I suggest Celtic Not.

Anonymous said...

It reminds me of the birth of a star and the little rhyme, "Star light, star bright, first star I've seen tonight". My suggestion is 'star bright' as several of them seem to keep on radiating outward. Have fun choosing. Darlene

Albee said...

ENDLESS STAR, just because......

construction_julie said...

How about... Maizy :)

MHH said...

It reminds me of an Iris...and wouldn't it be lovely done in purple?

kfr14819 said...

Yes, reminds me of an Iris too, but I would call it "Fleur de Lis". Thank you!

Kathi Munson said...

I Think it could be called Celtangle

Mary Ann said...

My first thought when I saw it was of the shamrock being used by St. Patrick to explain the Trinity. Since both shapes have three points, how about Trinitangulation?

taninya akter said...

A spokesman for the camp has said that they intend to leave within a
couple of weeks and to try to clear the park to the best of their
ability. Talks are continuing between the camp, the Council and the
Cathedral to finalise how and when the camp will move on. Alex and I
welcome that this appears to be a peaceful conclusion to the protest and
hope the park will be back to its former glory soon.
