Scallamp Step-Out and Deconstruction

Hi, friends!!

Here is the deconstruction/step-out of my pattern “Scallamp.” I’ve also included a video I shot of myself tangling this pattern with some filler possibilities! Leave a comment to let me know what you think and if you have any questions!

Scallamp was inspired by a lamp I had from Ikea. It tall and had a paper shade with papier-mache-like strips spiraling around it and vertically. It was pretty trippy! It took me a year of playing with the lines and curves to come up with something that was easily repeatable and met a lot of the requirements for a tangle pattern.

  1. I’m doing the Diva challenge 314 – relatively new to the challenge, connecting with the community of tanglers who do it, and to having a blog. Shallamps looks like fun – I’m looking forward to playing with it.

  2. This is one of the prettiest designs I’ve seen. Perfect timing, as I’ve been on the lookout for a border to use on a few poems I’m gifting.

    Trying to subscribe, but it keeps referring me back to Linda Farmer’s Tangle Patterns (where I found you today). I’ve only had time for a quick glance, but I’ve already spotted a few more patterns to explore. Hopefully I’ll figure it out when I can give it more attention.

    Thank you for sharing your talents & GREAT JOB on the video… Seriously!

  3. Hi Sarah, I love this pattern. Could you share the coloring for the example that is deep red, rust, amber, white? I am fairly new to zentangle and am trying to learn about shading and coloring. Thank you so much.

  4. I love scallamp, especially the red/amber/white coloring . Would you share what tools you used to achieve the look? Thanks so much. Sharon Newman
