Vernazz - A Tangle Inspired by Stunning Vernazza

February 22, 2018

Welcome to my blog! Here is another fun Zentangle Tangle for you to try. A ‘Tangle’ is a pattern in the Zentangle art form. For those of you who have not yet discovered this beautiful art form, find all about Zentangle® here!


Full disclosure! I work for Tombow USA as their Signature Designer. I am financially compensated for this consulting job and receive Tombow Products on a regular basis to review and write about. The opinions here are completely my own based on my experience.


For the tangle posts I need to apologize if you have already created a similar tangle. It’s hard to keep up with all you creative tanglers creating new and wonderful patterns!


Vernazz’ is a tangle that was first published in my ‘Time to Tangle in Colors’ a Design Originals Published book by Marie Browning.


While travelling in Italy, I saw this wonderful floor design from which this tangle was designed. The name Vernazz is named after Vernazza, one of the five towns in the Cinque Terre region that was a big favorite with my husband and I. I also really like the sound of ‘Vernazz’!


For the modern calligraphy in the title, I have used Tombow’s Fudenosuke Brush Pen, Hard Tip. You can download a FREE Lettering Practice Workshop from the Tombow website to learn modern calligraphy with this pen!


For drawing this tangle, I used Tombow’s new MONO Drawing Pens. They come in 01, 03 and 05 tip sizes. They are juicy with nice strong tips that don’t bend if you are like me and heavy handed when drawing.


For shading the tangle, I used Tombow MONO Drawing Pencil. These artist grade, extra-refined graphite pencils produce superior shading of your tangles. They come in 14 point strengths from soft 6B to a hard 6H. The shading here was done with 4H, 2H and 3B MONO Drawing Pencils.


Here is a Fractalized version of Vernazz
