Doodling « Elizabeth Rosenberg's Blog I’ve always been a doodler. All the way back in my high school days, I used to doodle while the teacher was lecturing (though I might have been better off if I’d taken notes instead). I’d fill page after page of my notebooks with doodles. Most of them featured spirals, which I loved even back then. I especially loved doodling during music appreciation class.

Quite soon after I had read the directions in the Diva's Weekly Challenge #123 I knew I wanted to create "something" with those.

Denzer Family Art My step outs are sometimes crazy, I usually find myself using a new pattern in a zentangle and then try to figure out how someone else could do the same. My mind isn’t always logical but this is what happens. I will share all the patterns I have given steps to in this post. I apologize for some of the photo quality in my earlier postings. A Bed of Roses Birds of a Feather For my fellow tangle junkies: some thoughts on collecting and organizing tangle patterns I'm a perfectionist. I didn't always know this about myself, or maybe I wasn't always one and I'm just settling into my own shoes a little as I get older.

Zentangle Pattern Swap Sunday, August 7, 2011 Zentangle Pattern Swap Posted by Faithmarie at 8:45 PM Tangles to Try Monday, July 26, 2010: Tangle "Brix" Although Brix is a very simple tangle, it is a great filler, especially for a larger space.
