FUNLS - a new tangle

While attempting the 75th Zentangle weekly challenge - to use Cadent - my brain went off in other directions and instead presented a few lovely variations of Cadent. For another very cool variation of Cadent, see CZT Patty Meijer's blog here.

Some of the things my brain sprouted are so different that I think they warrant their own name. I'll be sharing them this week.

First up, FUNLS, which probably bears the most resemblance to Cadent. Say 'funnels'. I think we owe our non-English-first-language tangle buddies some explanations of the odd/oddly-spelled names we come up with for some tangles! A hint: frequently they are rather phonetic and don't use the frequently bizarre English spelling. :)

For shading, go to the base of the squiggly lines. Here's a tile with Funls:
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Funls, Groovy, Knase, LinQ, Tortuca


  1. This one looks like great fun! I can't wait to use it!

  2. I like this. It's a nice variation of cadent (which I invariably goof on). It's a challenge to work with those "mistakes."

  3. Oh my gosh! I love this! Can't wait to try it....gotta go try it right now!!!

  4. Love it!!
    Thank you so much!!

  5. Any plans to run a class in Calgary AB?

    1. I'll be teaching at ArtWaves West in Leduc, just south of Edmonton, but because there are Certified Zentangle Teachers in Calgary and Canmore and elsewhere I don't want to tread on their toes.
