A Zentangle Post

I have just discovered Zentangle (R)!! (doodling with purpose, or as I like to say, doodling with style). There is a difference between doodling (random scratchings on a page) and Zentangling. Its all doodling to me :)

I have been doing it for 3 days and I totally love love love it!! For information about this amazing emerging art form, you can visit the official website at www.zentangle.com and click on the links around the site. For a great index of (I think) all the patterns, go to TanglePatterns.com

I have ordered 4 (or was it 5?) of the official Zentangle (R)books from The Book Depository and am eagerly awaiting them. In the meantime, google and TanglePatterns.com are my friends. Wow, I wish Marie and Robert would come to Australia, as I can't afford to go to Michigan for the CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher) course. My 2 girls have taken to this art like ducks to water too. We all have our own little Zen kit that I put together. Its wonderful!

I am still learning (of course), but I really like the results so far. The image at the top is my fave and the most recent of my Tangles.

I hope you enjoy (I sure do :) )
Take care and ciao for now,

These are really nice Zentangles. I love the openess of the first one in the top left hand corner. Looks like a landscape. I signed up to follow you. I will be back for more inspiration.

Thanks Heather. I have some tangles coming over the next few weeks. I hope they live up to your expectations.
