Zentangle is fun!

We have an Art Quilt group attached to our Quilt Guild.  It is only a small group but we have some very talented ladies amongst us.
Chris showed us zentangle on Saturday, and it was so much fun.  Easier than I thought.Zentangle goods Chris
Here are some of the things Chris had to show us.  Love those shoes!!

You start with a pencil line ‘string’ and then just start doodling.

Oh dear, looks like another thing to get hooked on!!! 
There will be more zentangles done around here for sure.

Di your zentangle is amazing this is certainly another thing to get zapped into doing. you will need another small art book to take in the car with you that you can while away the hours with.

perhaps you can create zentangles from what you see in the australian landscape.

I'm constantly amazed at the Zentangles that are being created, and your pieces are no exception Di, they are gorgeous. And to think, I've been making Zentangles forever whilst talking on the phone........LOL..... I just lack the motivation to do it properly!! Good luck with them and can't wait to see more. LOVE THOSE SHOES.
