This morning I attended a Zentangle workshop at Deanne's Studio. I was in there several weeks ago and Brenda (who works there) asked me if I wanted to attend a workshop on zentangle. I had never heard of it before and asked "What is it?" She said....well it's kind of like yoga for your brain - with drawing.
Huh?? I scrunched up my face with a combination eye roll and laughed. She told me to go home and google it and then decide. So I did. I had to admit, it looked kind of interesting. You can find info here
After I looked at it I thought it might be fun and could help me with designing some fun abstract rugs.
The instructor was the loveliest lady all the way from Georgia. We had a great morning and anyone can do this. We all doodle but this is just taking it up a notch. This is all you need
First we learned some basic techniques - everyone used the same designs yet everyone looked completely different - this is mine
It is very relaxing with the simple repetitive strokes. If you like to doodle, I encourage you to visit the zentangle site and give it a try. I purchased a book today and there are others available on Amazon.
