Blending, Edgework and Bridges between tangles: discover the potential you never knew possible

This lesson will forever change how you approach the play between tangle patterns

• Understand different tangle transition styles

The transition between two tangles -- the boundary of the string -- can be treated in different ways, ranging from super easy to complex blending. If you are a beginner, understanding the different styles and phases can help you to aim for future progress; if you are an advanced tangler it can help you to explore your untapped potential.

• Explore different styles of transitions

Explore blends, edgework, bridges, borders and much more. Transitions between tangles can range from completely ignoring the string, all the way to fully acknowledging and playing with the string boundaries through blending and transitional bridges. In this lesson you'll learn the basics of each different type of transition!

• Five different phases ranging from easy to complex

In this lesson, you'll learn 5 different phases, or styles of transitioning, ranging from simply ignoring the string, passing through edgework, overlap, borders, blending, transitional "bridge" elements and more. You'll be able to choose the style you like and combine as many as you like in your work!

• An advanced framework that will help you to grow

Practice exercises that can be applied to almost any type of filler or grid tangle pattern, so that you can discover the best transitions to use with your favorite tangles. Apply these to real life projects!

• Three real life full Zentangle projects

In this Advanced course, you'll not only understand the theory, you'll work on three classic Zentangle projects from beginning to end to apply advanced transitions such as blends, edgework and bridges.

• Tons of tips including shading!

You not only learn about transitions, you also learn a tremendous amount of tips on how to approach tangle combinations and overlap. That includes a LOT of shading work as well!

Learn how to BLEND tangles seamlessly, making the string disappear!

What people said about this lesson...

“I absolutely love and needed this Tangle Transitions lesson. Perfect for beginners on. Maybe I'll be a lucky lifetime beginner, in awe of the next skill to learn, play with and master.”

“Tangle Transitions appears to be the answer to my unspoken prayer. When I first began taking Zentangle lessons about 6 years ago, almost immediately I became frustrated with the rigid look of either ignoring the string or acknowledging the string. I almost gave up tangling completely because I was so dissatisfied with my works. Now I have some new approaches and will be practicing pretty steadily in weeks to come. I hope this solves my deep angst about the Zentangle method, which I both love and sometimes don't love. Thanks, Eni, for the guidance I so sorely need. “

"Dear Eni,

I love all your lessons, but your previous one (bijou raffle) and especially this one (tangle transitions) are really great and very important for me. I always struggling which patterns I want to use. After I find them it so difficult to make the drawing looks like one. It often looks like solo parts that are all on there own and not interacting with each other. With this very clear lesson I can now try to blend them etc. Thanks for all your lessons!!!!"
