SIMPLE ZENTANGLE IDEAS TO INSPIRE YOU

Zentangles are a great way for a person of any age to sit down, draw whatever comes  into their minds, and relax!

WHAT EXACTLY IS A ZENTANGLE?
If you haven’t heard of them before, the name can sound a little funny! A zentangle is a “patterned” drawing made through the use of intricate and creative simple drawings. Think of it as a quilt, if you will. Quilts are made up of several patches and those patches come in different sizes and shapes, and within those patches are different designs and patterns. That’s essentially what a zentangle is as well. It’s just a fun way to create a fun and up-lifting drawing!

“When you create in a Zentangle way, you create a beautiful piece of art. You also can deliberately create a mood, a focus, a state of mind.”
