Crescent Moon

Today is the First Quarter Moon. The Zentangle pattern Crescent Moon is just that, a quarter moon! What a perfect day to post a new tangle pattern video of Crescent Moon!

The Aura

Crescent Moon is one of the first tangles I teach beginners. First, it’s fun and so versatile. And it teaches a foundational concept in the Zentangle Method of drawing, the AURA. An aura is just a line that is drawn next to another line. Kind of like a ripple in a pond around the spot where the stone hit the water. Or imagine a halo around the head of an angel. Auras are used in LOTS of Zentangle patterns so Crescent Moon is a great tangle to practice!

Make it Your Own

Crescent Moon really is a tangle that you can decorate and make it your own. I've included samples I've drawn with my own "spin" on this basic tangle. Use these as inspiration for your own practice.
