No Fear

If Zentangles look great on floors, why not walls?

When we visit people, we often leave a Zentangle. Sometimes it's a traditional paper one. Every now and then it might be like this one.


Here, Maria traced a Zentangle tile and drew her string with pencil right on the wall, added tangles with a pen and shaded with pencil. (Notice the one line of aura on this one.)

This trompe l'oeil Zentangle is "stuck" in the molding of our kitchen doorway.

What fun - do you leave them as a surprise for the folks? I've released several bookmark zentangles into the wild (mostly at bookstores) with a note on the back that lets them know it now belongs to them. I've been fortunate enough to even see a few "captured".

I love that, Tinkered. The note on the back is a cool idea. I am definitely going to do a few to send randomly out into the world. Thanks!

Oh, Add me to that list. I'd love to send out some Zentangle bookmarks as a RAK. Good Idea.

BTW, Maria and Rick, if you ever come to California and want to leave me a Zentagled wall, I wouldn't mind a bit!

Trompe-l'oeil Z - what a great concept!!
I have 4-inch WHITE shower tiles in my apartment...and Sharpie comes off cleanly with rubbing alcohol when I want to put up new designs...
