Zen Doodling was a technique I discovered last year during CED2010 and I played with it frequently. I wasn't making them quite the way that I now understand that zentangles are supposed to be done but I sure found the doodling to be fun, very relaxing and very zen. I have since discovered a few blogs specifically about zentangles: I am the Diva CZT, BLOG Zentangle, Open Seed Arts and the great index of zentangle ideas Tanglepatterns.com. Plus Eden of Draw, Doodle and Decorate Blog is another great source of colourful pattern ideas.
I am the Diva CZT has started up a weekly challenge based on a specific pattern. This week the pattern is IXORUS (yes these patterns have names!) and this is what it inspired from me:
If you like playing with zentangles/zen doodling you might want to try this weekly challenge out!
I couldn't decide which direction I liked best so I'm spinning it to see the other perspectives. Silly and fun!
And there are lots of participants to visit and see how this pattern inspired them!
