my latest zentangle

i love doing zentangle. it takes a long time- i break it up between a few days, i never know what its going to look like because i just go with what i think of!

these are my two latest. this one i used a Bic Velocity Gel pen which i like, but sometimes i would go dead depending on how it was held. the second one i got a felt tip pen (i think thats what they are called) from Michaels craft store, essentially the inexpensive version of the "Pigma" pens. i love it! i will continue to use the felt tip rather than the writing pen

the first one- with the writing pen, done of regular printer paper




the scanned copy


the second one- done with the imitation 'Pigma' pen, on regular printer paper

i cut off the top because i was doing that part late at night and it looked bad!! i love how the end product came out




the scanned copy (ignore the black line on the left!)


i bought a frame at Dollar Tree -love that store!- and i hung it on my wall. i also bought another frame in which i use as a white board because you can draw on the glass... (you have been warned of the low flying budgies!!)

thanks i love doing it once i start it, but when i am not doing it, i don't have the energy to start a new one! i just tried doing something different, and i didn't like it, so it just ended up just being a page with a lot of random things on it

Those look amazing! You got me into doing it before, I have no idea why I stopped when I was enjoying it so much (most likely time) but you've made me wanna start again

Haha, we'll it might seem like I'm lying, but they are pretty simple when you look close. It's mostly just simple patterns- the hard part is deciding what the next sections shape is going to be and the pattern to fill it. Once you think of a pattern, it is fun to fill that row in! I am working on a word zentangle now, so far so good. If it looks good I will post it (unlike the copy that I tried to color in )

Your right. I looked close and I noticed how you made them. But I know I still can't do it.

this is an older one i did when i was just filling in the shapes with pattens


this is a copy that i colored in- i like it better in black and white!!


this is the one i did the last few days. its not my favorite, the original was blue ink and i colored in the letters a light blue... i am doing another one with the same "love" in the middle, i like it so far. again i will post pics when its done (maybe in a few days)

They are excellent! You are talented.i agree the b&w is best though. What if you drew it with colored markers instead? Wish I had time to make some of those!
