just finished my first zentangle! thoughts?
« on: June 24, 2014, 01:36:04 AM »
here is my first attempt at zentangling? is that the correct verb?  ;D I used an old zebra g nib and sumi ink and really liked the way it turned out. It was incredibly enthralling.

Bravo! You did a great job! I love it! I was hoping there would be some zentanglers out there!  ;D

I usually use a micron pen (actually a variety of them in different sizes). I love the contrast and the very fine lines of the smaller one (.005).

You've done very well here. Warning - so addictive!  :) For awhile there I was zentangling everything I could get my hands on ...napkin holder, platter, my sneakers!  ;D

I do zentangle, but it takes a lot of time, so it's when I have nothing to do. :) Nice job there! I like how there's even cherries in there.

thanks! I cant take credit for the idea though, I have the book "One Zentangle a Day" by Beckah Krahula and its a very nice step by step how to do patterns I'm really enjoying it so far  ;D
