Fabulous Fengle

Tangles: Fengle with baby Fengles, Aura, Beadlines, Crescent Moon
Fengle is one of my favorite tangles. Admittedly, I have many favorite tangles! It's an organic, flowy tangle that I feel comfortable with. It has implied movement. It has infinite possibilities. Scroll down in this newsletter from Zentangle to see how to draw Fengle as well as some variations.

Other tangles: Tipple, and the Rounding enhancement

I often use Fengle as a string and then expand and fill it willy-nilly. It has lots of possibilities, and with a lot of initially empty space, it can incorporate other tangles. Here's a round tile where I did just that, Fengle in ink and willy-nilly filing and expanding.
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Crescent Moon, Knase, Pearlz, Perfs, Tipple,
plus spirals, a Knighstbridge aura, and Rounding

These Fengles are in disguise. Can you recognize them? In the first tile there's a small and a large Fengle.
They're also willy-nilly Fengles. :)
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Fengle, Pearlz, Tipple, Zewm, and stripes
Tangles: Fengle, plus stripes, dots and Aura-like lines

Here's Fengle on a pre-strung zendala tile, giving it a much more regular look.
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Fengle, Tipple, Tripoli, Wud, Rounding, and stripes.


  1. Fantastic, fancy, Margaret you tangle with such finesse!

  2. Love, love the last two. Your work is awesome, Margaret.

  3. You are truly amazing !! It must have taken you ages to create so many tile. Just curious.... how many hours in a day do you spend creating these lovely art pieces?.

    1. I'm fortunate to be able to spend a lot of time on my art, so I do some almost every day, usually for a few hours.

  4. Yet again your work amazes and inspires me! Such depth and interest in every tile!

  5. Such beautiful variations.
    All of them are great pieces of ART !

  6. These are beautiful! Fengle is one of those tangles I really struggle with - you've inspired me to give it another go. Thank you.
