    This is a drawing made with a micron pen on fabric. The technique is called zentangle or zendoodle. Does anybody else "ZEN" ?

    I have been zentangling for a while. Who'd have thought you could make a saleable product out of something I have done for years and years!

    Love to Zen, My daughter has not picked up a pencil since her art teacher died. I started to get her going now we both are tangled up in it. Im so glad she is doing something creative again.

    yes, i have been 'zen-tangling' for a long time now! really started long before it received a name...and notoriety. sometimes when i'm having problems getting (organized or motivated) if i set down with some zentangle tiles and get to drawing it...free's my mind-allows me to re-focus and motivates me. also, when trying to figure out new quilting possibilities i have learned alot about lines, illusions, relationships between different designs...lots...
    very liberating...
    yours are lovely! have you made a zen-doodle quilt yet? i've incorporated a few into a couple projects but have not stacked up enough to make a quilt yet...i have been doing 3 1/2" ones for awhile now...and may figure out a way to make them into my 'ZENTANGLE PATH QUILT'
    i may get a picture or two here later

    I bought the book - then discovered that it is what I had been doing during boring meetings all of my working life! Haven't done it on fabric yet. It does calm my mind.

    These are just two of my first three. I used a micron 01 black pen and to color the fingers I used "Inktense" pencils by Derwent...also, instead of water with the Inktense pencils, I used clear, no color added aloe gel...

    FOFLMBO....My daughter draws on herself, her jeans, paper, assignments, canvas, shoes, etc....Never can see a reason to flip out, even though some of her friends parents aren't too sure what to make of it....

    We have a group of zentanglers here, I have done some. Used to do it in lecture classes in college-doodling. Who knew it would become a real art. The group here uses a lot of different mediums, paper, cloth, ceramics, etc.
