Remember…

Lines have character and personality and can communicate emotion.

* Horizontal lines are calm, quiet, restful* Vertical lines are bold, strong, stable* Thin lines can be delicate, timid, weak* Diagonal lines show action, falling, leaning, or

growing* Pointed or jagged lines can express uncertainty or

anger* Meandering lines are whimsical and happy* Flowing lines are graceful and mystical

Horizontal and vertical lines in combination communicate stability and solidity.

Deep, acute curves, on the other hand, suggest confusion, turbulence, even frenzy.Soft, shallow curves suggest comfort, safety, familiarity, relaxation.

Zigzag lines are a combination of diagonal lines that connect at points. They take on the dynamic and high energy characteristics of diagonal lines. They create excitement and intense movement. They convey confusion and nervousness as they change direction quickly and frequently. They can imply danger and destruction as they break down.

When creating a Zen tangle you can take advantage of the negative space.

What is the negative space?

For your Zen tangle you will need to include an everyday object, letter or animal as the outside shape or the negative space in your Zen tangle.

Also be creative with your patterns. Include variety and line personality.Are they going to be lines or shapes?

Are the going to create value?

Think about space, movement and rhythm, and balance.
