When I first saw Zentangle®, I thought it was just simple doodling. Then I ran across a collection of Zentangle art and I was awestruck by both the simplicity and complexity that can be achieved. Well, sign me up! What fun!
Later, as we started traveling by RV, I was grateful this form of art required little space and few materials. 🙂
More Than a Doodle
In a nutshell, you use various patterns to create art on small squares of paper (tiles) with a micron pen and a pencil. It’s fun and it’s beautiful.

You can, of course, “tangle” on other items like rocks and seashells. You don’t have to limit yourself to small paper tiles. You can cut loose on any size of paper in any kind of medium.

A Bit of Beauty for Your Day
I mention this on Dandelion Hill Homestead because when you simplify your life, a lot of your “entertainment” becomes simpler too.
Creating a bit of art is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. It’s calming and you have something beautiful to show for your time.
Round and Round
One of my favorite things to do is tangle in the round – called a Zendala. These are a bit of my handiwork using templates from Zendala Moments.
The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. “Zentangle” is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at Zentangle.com.
