Tangles with Zentangle


What is Zentangle?

The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun

way to create beautiful images by drawing structured

patterns. We call these patterns tangles .

Zentangle art is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on

each stroke and not worry about the result. Zentangle

provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of

personal well being.


How do I get started with Zentangle?

To make a Zentangle, start by drawing a light square border

around the edges of your paper with a pencil. Next, lightly

sketch a simple string, or a curved line or squiggle, which

will lend structure to your design and elegantly divide the

border into sections.




How big is a Zentangle tile?

The Zentangle 3Z Tile is a 3.5" x 3.5" x 3.5" equilateral

triangle. It's die cut deckle edge and rounded corners

match the look and feel of our other tiles. 3Z tiles fit

together in mosaics by themselves and with 3.5" square

tiles.


What materials do I need for Zentangle?

1) Paper, preferably artist quality acid free or slightly

textured

2) Pencil

3) Pen, thick and thin





Things to remember:

  • Make sure there are enough white spaces otherwise it would look to cramped up.

  • Finally go over the outline with a thicker marker.
