What is Tangle U?

I had the pleasure of attending Tangle University last week in Portland Maine.  This three-day conference is put together by Elaine Huffman (along with many volunteers) and is only for Certified Zentangle Teachers. I had a wonderful time meeting many Tanglers whose blogs I follow and had the opportunity to speak in person with the likes of Marie Browning, Suzanne McNeil and Sandy Stein Bartholomew.  So exciting!

There were so many really great presentations by amazing Zentangle artists. I learned so much that I am still trying to process.  Look forward to some interesting classes in my upcoming schedule based on what I learned.

Sakura of America made a fabulous presentation and shared with us a sample of most of their different pens and markers.  I made a tile to share with Glaze, Metalic and Moonlight pens.

I used a Zentangle tan tile as my base and tangled Abacus, Adele, Popva and Fluttertile from Sandy Steen Bartholomew's Tangle app (that's all I had available while waiting at the airport and that's all I needed). Then added Nzepple.

Happy Tangling!
