Back in late 2013 when I was still fairly new to Zentangle, but already loving it, my husband asked me to do a ZIA to put in our wine bar area in the kitchen.  I took a piece of parchment look paper, printed a quote from Benjamin Franklin on it and tangled a wine bottle and glass. I burned the edges and mounted it on a really cool square plate charger from Pier One.   It is a favorite piece in our home.

I created a border using a "roller coaster" line and used a shell type motif on one side and filled in a variety of tangles on the opposite side of the line. I never had a name for it, but I loved it!
Much later, in 2015, I finally worked the stepout for this pattern. It is pretty easy to draw, and offers the potential for countless variations and embellishments in "the bay" part.   Hope you like it too!




  1. That's a beautiful pattern. I'll be trying it out soon. ^-^

  2. This is a gorgeous tangle Antonine, thanks for sharing. I hope you have submitted it to Linda Farmer!
