Robin!  Your work is wonderful!!!!!  No more second guessing yourself.  Just add a few new marks, let's say 2, to each new piece.  Steal, like it's really stealing, some of the doodles I have come up with.  As far as I know, sharing patterns to put into your own designs is perfectly acceptable.  It is only the taking of the whole design where trouble begins, but you know that.  Go girl!  You are doing great.

Thank you for the tips.  I've done a few zentangles, but just don't feel very "artistic" when it comes to them.  I tend to use the same ones over and over.  and never feel as if I'm doing it "right", but i guess there's no right or wrong...........

I put a link to my flickr if anyone wants to take a peak at some that I've done.  I have 2 whole notebooks full but just haven't gotten around to picture taking.

Robin, try this.  Draw a curvy line, straight or in a curve.  Go back and add a solid dot.  Now go back and add circles.  How big?  Any size you want.  Add a straight line.  Add a triangle.  It goes on and on this way.  It looks better and better as you go, because you are building up the complexity.  Hope that helps.  Ask for more any time.

Robin, it begins with a doodle across a piece of paper/fabric/egg/etc.  When you are ready, start another doodle going another direction.  It seems to work out that when you finish one design, another pops up to try.  So you try it in another direction.  Eventually you are filling in the gaps with spirals, and one of a kind motifs.  Remember all the designs are already out there.  Look at packaging labels, architecture/interior design (especially carpeting), and all of the zentangles you see.  Borrowing a doodle is highly exceptable.  You may easily find a variation of 'that' doodle among gray cells.  Don't worry.  It is not about the end.  It's about the beginning.  From there, they just lead you along, until the end.  Don't be surprised with left over doodles.  Just grab something else to put them on.

WOW!!!!!!!!! I love Zentangles.  but I am NO WHERE near as experienced as you ladies.  These are gorgeous

I am out of control on zentangles.  On fabric, eggs, and more.  Keep me waiting, and you will probably find myself at work on a zentangle.








A zentangle egg in progress.  Following that is zenned heart.

Linda...that is so cool! I am going to do zentangles for a sketchbook project I am going to work on this week. I bought the book, Totally Tangled, and it is great!

I did my initials in Zentangles.  I've been doing them with the gr. 4 and 5 kids at school as an extra curricular activity and it's been very popular.

HI, if anyone is still around. I follow the Zentangle site but haven't made any yet. I have MS real bad, and don't know if I can do one. Can't control my hands very well. It's a mess when I type . Lots to change. I'm trying to get up the nerve. I'm just nervous about it because if I can't do it, that will be another thing I can't do. Hope to see some of yours on this site. I do really enjoy looking at them.  Karen
