Tangled Thursday: Thanksgiving

For the fourth week of Tangled Thursdays, it was my turn to choose the theme.  Since next week is Thanksgiving in the U.S., I chose that as our inspiration:  Create a Zentangle inspired by the idea of thankfullness, in whatever shapes, designs or patterns you choose.  

My favorite form of Zentangling is to use a copied or traced shape as a starting point.  This theme was the perfect opportunity for me to get to do that.  I selected one of the definitive symbols of Thanksgiving - the cornucopia or "horn of plenty".  The base design was from a coloring page.  I went all out and drew my tangle on 8 x 10 sketch paper.  

Tangled Thursday is a weekly feature hosted by Heather @ Books and Quilts.  Visit Heather to see what everyone is tangling or to join.


  1. Gorgeous work, Tami! As I said on Heather's post, I thought of doing a cornucopia, too, but couldn't draw one. I didn't think of using a pre-printed one. You guys are too smart! Have a great week!

  2. Well done. The horn is done so differently than mine, but then we started with very different images. Love the pineapple and the apple. . can't wait to see what we each come up with each week. Always a learning experience.

  3. Wow!!!! so beautiful! My efforts pale in comparison.
