Art therapy, it’s a good thing:)
Getting lost in creative pursuits so your mind/body can find a pleasant and peaceful, creative place/space is one of my favorite things. For this zendala, I kept the tangle choices simple…
- Printemps, striping, a touch of Tipple and Shattuck.
I like how the center striping adds a 3D effect and when I was done, I was relaxed! Check out more fun “heart art” on the Diva’s Challenge link 303: http://iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com
Zendala FUN: Keeping it Zen on a sunny afternoon
Four tangle patterns
Unconstrained by symmetry
N No worries, let it flow one stroke at a time!
As you may know the “Zen,” in Zentangle is the idea that there are no mistakes, just artistic experimentation, fun and flow. So, on a beautiful summer afternoon in New England I had the bonus of a little creative time on my hands (love when this happens:) and I enjoyed creating an asymmetrical Zendala using four patterns Abundes, Poke Root, Sanibelle and Squid, with a Sakura micron 01 and a graphite pencil. B.t.w., Zendala tiles come blank and pre-strung with grayscale strings. I chose a pre-strung floral style pattern for this design.
If you find yourself with a little creative time, why not give a free-flowing Zendala a try:)
