Zentangle Fun!

I have discovered a new love, Zentangles!  Zentangle is a form of doodling that is both relaxing and fun. Basically, you draw lines with pencil that look like strings on a paper to create a guideline for your zentangle. Next you use a black pen (I love the Pitt markers) and draw a tangle pattern into each section.

Here is a page from my journal that I filled with a zentangle design:
There are tons of zentangle ideas all around you, just look for patterns in everyday items.  You can see the section below is from a calender.
I used my zentangle designs and a photo transfer process to create new jewelry pieces for the spring.



For more information on zentangles, check out the website.

Stay tuned for more zentangle designs!

Stacie - these designs are wonderful! The B&W designs are beautiful on silver. I've been doodling with Zentangles on paper, and want to transfer them to fabric. Maybe today is the day! :-)
