    Anyone out there doing Zentangle?

    I just learned how to do this and am hooked. It is drawing patterns with Micron Pens or Sharpies on art paper. Would love to see what you are doing!

    I just discovered this over the weekend. The one you made is terrific. I was looking at a website www.Tanglepatterns.com. I would like to try it.

    Yes, I am doing Zentangle but with a few variations of my own. I like the micron pens. Black is always the favorite. Have tried designs is red, blue , green and brown micron ink but they don't look as sophisticated as the black on white or cream paper. Currently trying paper made with hemp fiber with a bit of texture.

    Yes I've been doing Zentangles for over a year now. I find it very relaxinf at the end of the day and usually do one each evening. It certainly is addictive!! There are lots of web sites out there too that have some wonderful art to show.

    It used to be called "doodling" when I first started it. Tons of people do it in thread. There were some lovely ones posted on this board a while back. I think the member came from Hungary.

    I really like the individual approach you have taken to this concept.

    I call it doodling. I've done it all my life, never really thought of it as art. Next time I will do it a nice piece pf paper.

    I used to love to Doodle. I am headed off to Zentangle to check it out. However, my doodling never looked like yours looks. Gorgeous.

    I love tangling! Took two classes with Pat Ferguson at this year's MQX, one for drawing and another for sewing. Awesome classes, great teacher. Love my new hobby. I think I have every Zentangle book around, plus a whole box full of supplies. drgranny, your doll is awesome!

    Is there a particular book that you use or would recommend for a new Zen? In looking at their website it would seem the pens are common to most stores.....but water paper do you use? Sorry for so many questions.

    I also have been Zentangling for about a year. Even sent my oldest DGS( at college )a set-up of all he needs to Tangle too. Told him I was tired of hearing he is bored ! Told him to think of his DGirlfriend and he should come up with beautiful ones to send her. I 'm just about brave enough to try it with fabric and machine.
    Take a deep breath, Give it to God, and smilingly carry-on ! I pray for peace in your life and mine. Sara

    I took a class in this at Houston Festival and fell in love with them. Thank you for the site. I just enrolled in it and contributed so I can get the books!

    I started doing it in the beginning of summer on bigger flat rocks which I sprayed with a sealer and put outside in my cactus rock garden. They look so neat and unique. Love it.
