Zentangle. Zentangle is an art form that anyone can try. You use patterns in a series of steps, with repetition. I learned about zentangle on Pinterest, of all places. I was searching art journal boards and kept running across patterns. I just wanted so badly to be able to draw like these ladies and men whose boards I browse over every day. I started at zentangle.com and began reading and studying what I saw. This was my first large project. It’s on a page in a smash journal, about 7″ x 10″. It was a lot of fun! No, it isn’t perfect, but in zentangle it doesn’t have to be. And that’s only one thing I like about the art!
My daughter asked me what those little fellows in the middle were supposed to be. She thought they were aliens. So, now they are aliens! (Originally they were supposed to be cats :), but I can’t draw at all, which is another reason to like zentangle – I don’t have to.)
