Zentangles!

This week I discovered Zentangles!

This method of repetitive doodling with simple shapes into complex patterns is both simple and relaxing! All you need is a piece of paper and a writing utensil of your choice.

Not too shabby, eh?

You can find books like the one pictured above to instruct you on zentangling, or you can google the topic to find multiple websites with instructions and examples. I also searched the hash tag “zentangle” on Instagram and found a TON of awesome artists and their examples, like @cutedesigns and @rufuswealie:

Looking up other artists’ work is a great way to get inspired!

  1. very neat! I don’t believe i have the creativity to even know where to start with doodling like this! I do try to, it is very relaxing, yes, maybe your doodles will give me some inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks so much for the mention ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been creating zentangles for years, for most of that time unaware that they were a sub-genre called zentangles! I find them incredibly therapeutic to do and very rewarding. I look forward to seeing your zentangle creations in the near future.
