Zentangled Stencil...

This is from my little pocket journal. I used my stencils and filled my journal with some blank forms.
This camera looked like a fun item to tangle.
Because I am still learning how to tangle this is done very simply. I am hoping with practice that I can become much better. For now I am happy with the designs that appear here.
Zentangle is a rather calming activity. Once you begin to draw, your mind really does get in a calm zone. However at the same time this is an activity that is easily dropped and then picked up again when interruptions happen. That is why my little pocket journal is a great option to carry in my bag for those times when waiting is a must. My journal also holds the requisite micron pen. This is quiet and simple to do.
Have you tried Zentangle? If you quilt then you already tangle. If you doodle then you tangle.
I really enjoy seeing the fabulous designs others are doing with this artform.
Happy week to all...

  1. Do you find it relaxing because zentangles are repetitive patterns, or is it the act of drawing itself that brings about the calmness you desribed?
    I get into the 'flow' where time seems to stand still whenever I paint, bead or stitch.

  8. I doodle and love my hand sewing for surface design and of course my crochet. I have wondered about the zentangle process and if it has a steep learning curve. I really like this camera. I may have to give this a try. I think I like hand sewing and my crochet due to the meditative quality. It sounds like the zentangle has the same calming quality.

    Thanks so much for visiting with me.

    Hugs,
