I first became interested in Zentangle when I was searching for quilting patterns and ideas.  I really didn't
know exactly what it was.  But, I was enchanted.

Here's a definition . . .

Zentangle Method

The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.
Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over this world across a wide range of skills, interests and ages.
We believe that life is an art form and that our Zentangle Method is an elegant metaphor for deliberate artistry in life.   (Click Here for more info.)
 Here are a few samples . . . 

I am very interested in illustrated scripture.  My interest in Zentagle has grown since I realized that it is an excellent method to use for illustrating scripture.

Here's one example . . .

Lots of ideas . . .
And one perfect for letter Z . . .
 Ehlers Danlos is a genetic condition, and those of us with it are known as ZEBRAS. Because when Dr.s hear hoofbeats, they think horses, not zebras. Our symptoms often are misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia or other disorders.

Hi Lynne
I first became acquainted with Zentangles through Nessie Natters blog, and since then have loved this style, I am no artist but you have reminded me that I would love to try this one day. I love the cats and of course the bird!
Have a great weekend.
