Hello all,

It is interesting how life plays some times because I have been "Zentangling" for years and years, especially in my younger days and I never came across to this way of drawing as a Zentangle until this morning when I was pinning some dragonflies in Pinterest into my board "LulLabies" and then I came across to Sue Glass Pinterest page which is a Paradise for Zentangles.

A Zentangle is a relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being.

Characteristics of Zentangle are:

Intuitive: Anyone can create beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is easy to learn and easy to do.   

Fun and Relaxing: Creating Zentangle art provides a fun and lighthearted way to relax and intentionally facilitate a shift in focus and perspective.

Unexpected Results: your creation is not restricted by your expectations.

Ceremonial: Repetitive, simple steps that support relaxation, focus and inspiration. It can be a wonderful daily ritual.

Timeless: Creating designs, manipulating symbols and putting pen to paper is part of our human heritage.

Portable: Everything you need to create beautiful Zentangle art can fit in your pocket.

Non Technical: Your creativity is not directed by how someone else wrote a particular program, nor does it need batteries or electricity.

Empowering: It is an empowering and uplifting experience to learn that you can deliberately relax and intentionally direct your attention while creating beautiful works of art .

If you google "Zentangle" images, you will get a better idea :-)

My Music Zentangle is one example
which I feel so proud of.

Keep on Zentangling!
