Well, the title of this post is How to Zentangle, but you really don’t have to learn a lot. It’s actually just a way to create images with structured patterns. You don’t have to be an artist or have any artistic talent. Very relaxing and fun.

After looking at several books about Zentangles, I bought Totally Tangled, at my local art supply store (shout out to ArtMart!) I recommend it! It’s available here, if you can’t find it locally.
The Mono Drawing Pens from Tombow are great for Zentangling.
My daughter, who always says she can’t draw, did these.
The first time I saw some Zentangle designs, I was instantly intrigued by them. They reminded me of the doodles I made for years in my spiral notebooks in school when I was supposed to be taking notes. Even in college. (I did take notes too. I don’t know how I had time for note-taking between all of that doodling, but I did…)
Not surprisingly, I wasn’t the first one in my home to break open the book and give Zentangle a try. You might already know that my daughter is usually the one who ventures first into new creative projects. (She actually makes some of the Pinterest stuff she pins.) She was home from college for the summer and spent some time making these fun patterns.
She decided to add some color to this one:
These are phone pics, so not the greatest, but you get the idea.
I love the designs my daughter drew.
Have you tried Zentangling yet?
