Heart Art

Heart Zendala 

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:)

Have FUN!
