All Tangled Up

FullSizeRender (5)

A zentangle of mine. Lattice with peak-a-boo flowers.

I’ve literally been a doodler all my life.  I doodle when I’m on the phone.  At faculty meetings when I was still teaching.  Just about anywhere I had a pen and paper.  So just imagine how happy I was to discover Zentangles a few years ago!  It validated what I’ve been doing for years.   If you haven’t heard of it before, I encourage you to follow the link to learn more.  It’s fun, relaxing, therapeutic, calming, creative, and a whole host of other adjectives too.  Anyone can do it.  Anyone.  Even if you don’t think you’re artistically inclined.  And as the name implies, it is very meditative process.  Some days I finish what “tanglers” call a tile.  Other days, I just add a little bit to one in progress.  There’s a group on Flickr to check out if you want to see some truly amazing work.  Or check out Pinterest for other beautiful Zentangles and lots of tutorials to get you started.  There are also several books about the technique.  If you haven’t tried it, you should.  Tangle on, peeps!
