People send us beautiful examples of what they are creating with Zentangle.

Here are some treats to add to this growing visual feast.

Dear Rick and Maria. Thank you for your world of Zentangles. I have been a doodler all my life and Zentangle has put a name to what I do. I live in New Zealand so attending a leadership course is not possible. I am sending you a pic of my bathroom wall. You will see some familiar marks and hopefully lots of my own. Beez in the Belfry has been a source of inspiration and many others too. I enjoy your blog. Arohanui. Joan.

Check out how she incorporated that door stop into her creation. Thanks, Joan!

Maria and Rick,

I'm looking forward to the seminar next month. I thought I would share with you a couple of zentangles that I have completed. [ . . . ] Zentangle 4 is a 10"x10" zentangle which I put in a scrapbooking frame (onto black scrapbook paper). I'm working on my second 10"x10" one now.

In any case, I look forward to seeing you on May 18th! I'm counting the days!

Best wishes,


Thanks, Sharon. See you soon!

Rick and Maria, I'm sure you get deluged with things people do, but here is yet another. This is a 16x20 Zentangle created by ten people. We have a small group that meets once a month in Dayton OH, so some of them tangled on it, as well as some new zentangling beader freinds. The piece is being raffled for a community service organization that is throwing their first fundraiser called: Doors of Discovery, Windows of Peace. The design was done by one person and also shaded by one, but the Zentangle was created by the group.

Thanks, Carole

Awesome, thank you for sending that!

I would love to do a wall! I would be interested in knowing what kind of pen or marker you used, Joan.

I am inspired by everyone's use of Zentangle®. Mahalo for sharing their creations.

Shelly Beauch said...

Yes, such wonderful inspiration!!
I feel sad if someone ever says to me that they are bored..when there are so many ways to be creative. Is it a matter they don't want to be judged? One of the great aspects of Zentangles....you can't make a mistake....so no need for judgements but plenty of admiration. Thank you.

Carol Ohl.. I am using Elmers Painters, opaque paint markers. They are filled with acrylic paint. It is great fun and a bit daring - painting on a wall! Do you have a blog? Joan

Carole Ohl said...

No, I don't have a blog, Joan. Just enjoying everyone else's!

You will have to get a blog so I can see your zentangled wall Carole.
