is for Zentangle® which has been trademarked so that is why I have the trademark symbol after it. This comes directly from the website: Here’s some suggested copy that you can use: The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. “Zentangle” is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.
The concept of zentangle® came into my life when I really needed stress relief and I have been using on and off for about three years. The reason I like to zentangle is that you can’t make a mistake. Your “mistake” just becomes part of the pattern. You can tangle on almost any surface and get a good result. For example I’ve seen dominoes that were bought at goodwill used. I’ve seen tangles on canvas and part of a bigger art piece. There is no end in how they can be used in your art or just to relax on a nice sunny day. In closing I’m going to post few resources that will include pictures and patterns which you can use to get started with zentangle®
Sandy Steen Bartholomew has tons of zentangle stuff and her blog is the perfect place to find inspiration.
