Do You Zentangle?

Zentangling - February 17, 2010
I admit, I tried to avoid the Zentangle craze, but then I saw Sandy Bartholomew's article in Cloth Paper Scissors, and then checked out the Tangle of the Week on her blog. Next thing I know, I'm making Zentangle ATCs, though I wasn't able to keep to just black & white!

Another great source for design ideas is Molossus' blog Life Imitates Doodles, which provided inspiration for the Gem card below left:

The one on the right above was embossed metal, and I'll definitely have to try some on the sewing machine since there's a strong doodling link between the tangle patterns and the free-motion stitching I learned from Diane Gaudynski. In the meantime, it's ink pens & Twinkling H20 watercolors for me!

Carolyn, I love these cards. I've never heard of Zentangle, but I'm taken in. I will definitely have to investigate more. I love the colored versions too.

Cheers,
Christine

You're getting through your 'to do' list faster than I am, lol!

I do love what you're doing with the zentangles. You've got a bold, sassy style the produces lively work!

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by and leaving kind comments.
@Christine - just to warn you, the tangles are addictive ;o)
@Terri - I think you know we can't leave these things uncolored :D
@Molossus - thanks so much (and I only got the bloggin' done because I was procrastinating the housework! :o)
