a NEW artsy pastime

firstzentangle

Hi everyone!  So I recently learned that there’s actually a name for this type of artwork… {I’m a little slow}!   It’s called Zentangle.   AND I’ve found that it’s pretty fun and easy to do.  This is my first attempt and I plan to fill up my sketchbook with zentangle creations.  There are tons of YouTube tutorials on how to draw different patterns etc.  Some of them are pretty cool.  As you can see, I started with the very, very basic stuff!  Some of the videos said they were ‘Zentangling Tutorials’; however according to tanglepatterns.com

Creating a Zentangle is known as tangling.
There is no such thing as “Zentangling”.

The cool thing is, I can do this pretty much whenever and wherever I want.  There is really no special materials needed.  I’m looking forward to learning how to draw more designs.  Please let me know if you’ve tried this!  Any tips and tricks would be appreciated!  Have a great day!  Do something NEW!

  1. I had no idea….this is awesome! Thanks for sharing! Now, when I am “doodling” I will think of Zentangling and the art I am creating, not just passing a moment of time.

  2. Excellent – I really love this! I get pictures inside my head but cannot easily re-create them on paper. Patterns is the way to go!! best wishes, Barbara
