Zentangle fun!

15 Sep

Zentangle® is an easy to learn meditative art form. I absolutely love tangling. The creativity it allows me is amazing. But I also really love the mindfulness and focus that it gives me. Zentangle is so much more than just the patterning that you see. It is about the process, about the relaxation, about the ability to be in the moment.

You can learn more about Zentangle by visiting www.zentangle.com.  I highly recommend taking a class by a CZT (certified Zentangle teacher) to learn about the process. While the books and videos are wonderful, I think the value of taking a class from a CZT is something well worth your time and investment. I am a CZT and offer classes at my studio (a new class schedule will be available soon). I am also available for private CZT classes or group parties. Just contact me about what you need. I’m happy to discuss it with you.

I recently participated in an on-line Zentangle postcard swap and really had a lot of fun creating these and sending them off. I thought you might want to see a few samples of what I created.  Some of these are quite simple and others are more complex. That is part of the beauty of Zentangle – no matter what you do it looks great!

I love the Black & White look but also love adding a bit of color to some of them. Which do you prefer?

Perhaps we should have a postcard swap here on the blog? Anyone up for that?
