have you zentangled?

I just got a book, Yoga for Your Brain. It is about learning how to zentangle. It is all about taking doodling a step beyond. They have a website, http://zentangle.com/index.php. It is quite addictive. And I am having fun taking what I used to do while listening to my professors lecture and allowing it to flourish. (I took notes, but there were those moments where I just doodled.) I miss doodling. I am so busy running around that I don't just sit & relax & just doodle. Now I have a reason to do it. I won't feel like I am wasting time. It is something that I can do with my 7 year old daughter. I am even letting my 2 1/2 year old scribble and then taking that creating a zentangle from it.  Here is my first attempt at zentangling


What do you think? I didn't use the multiliner. I just wanted to see what I can do. So I took just a ballpoint pen, a sharpened pencil, & a blending stump and used my go to notebook. This is what I came up with. If you decide to get into zentangling. Let me know so that I can see what you're making.

Thanks for dropping by. I am off get dinner together & figure out what to do for the TI challenge. Have a great night!!

Oooh! I saw this posted on Mary-Anne's blog the other day (you know the lady who runs UKS?) and she's just started Zentangling too. It looks intruiging and I'm sorely tempted. But, I've got so much other stuff that I need and want to do that I'm not sure I can really start another hobby!! I'm interested to see how you develop it though so I'll pop back later!!

This is pretty cool. My LSS is HUGE on Zentangle and even has classes. Here is a link to my LSS's blog and it has links to some other Zentangle blogs that you might like. =D

This is fabulous! I've seen a lot about Zentangle at one of my local scrap stores, and it looks interesting, but I haven't started doing it yet. I can't wait to see what else you come up with!
