The Zentangle method of drawing is easy to learn, relaxing, and fun.The results are fast and beautiful. Although the amazing abstract images may look complicated, you will discover that they are achieved quite simply and are highly individual. As you grow in this practice, you may find surprising wells of creativity you forgot you possessed. It is a wonderful means of artistic expression for artists and "non-artists" of all ages.

Kandy Ribnz

As a Zentangle enthusiast, I try to learn as many tangles as I can. While trying to learn "Echoism" I found that I was making a mistake. In true Zentangle spirit, I made it work the best I could and found I liked it. Then I thought it looked like "Pressed Wood."  But there is a difference that cannot be ignored. It is not the same. It is neither "Echoism" nor "Pressed Wood." I think I have not seen my "error" before, so I am submitting it to www.Tanglepatterns.com. Here are the steps for creating my tangle pattern, Kandy Ribnz, with apologies to anyone who might have discovered it already.

My three previous posts contain this tangle.


  1. This is a wonderful and easy tangle. Perfect for Christmas cards with red and green stripes. It truly does look like the hard candy ribbons I remember as a child.

  2. I like you new tangle. Looks elaborate and fancy, yet seems easy to do. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh, how I loved that ribbon candy when I was a girl--we had a big bowl of it to offer to guests, every Christmas. Thank you for bringing back that memory--and, in such a low-calorie, teeth-friendly way! Just lovely....

  4. Ribbon candy holds a special place in my Christmas memories as well. With 5 kids and a limited budget, our "stocking" consisted of a tangerine, a walnut and a piece of ribbon candy. I still get a lump in my throat when I see it at Christmas.
    Will definitely be incorporating this in my tangles.

  5. Thank you, everyone. Your comments mean so much!

  6. This is fun with so many possibilities!!!I will enjoy using this tangle, thank you!
