[Updated April 7 12:12 PM EST with new contributions.] In this blog we share the entries that people sent to CBS' Sunday Morning program. You can read about this adventure in this newsletter. You can either post a link to the art and envelope you sent in the comments below or, you can email an image to and we'll add it to this blog for all to see. In a couple weeks, we'll pick one of you at random to receive a thank you gift that we (Rick and Maria) will create for you. We don't know where this will go, but it's a fun excuse to create some Zentangle art!

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 Papa Blogueur ZENTANGLE : l'art de dessiner pour déstresser Brie Van de Kamp , sur Facebook, nous montre ses créations Zentangle et j’avoue que HOUAAAAAAA, je suis conquis, fasciné pas tant de talents, d’imagination, de zenitude et j’en passe (salut jean !). Mais comme cet article est basé assez (beaucoup) graphique, j’ai tout de suite pensé à mon copain blogueur Juju du blog Mogwaii, donc je lui (re)rend hommage (il m’a prêté son logo, disons que ça devient un rendez-vous), allez sur son blog, vous comprendrez.

tangle, tangle, tangle Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts created Zentangle several years ago after Rick noticed how calm, relaxed and focused Maria was while working on a lettering art piece. It is best to hear them tell their own story and read about them on their web site at Here though, I would like to tell you my own personal impression when meeting the couple at the 2nd CZT workshop held in October 2009 at a wonderful mansion retreat in Whitinsville, Maryland (outside of Boston). The setting was rustic and beautiful - a perfect location to take in the world of Zentangles. The couple had put together a great workshop. Just meeting them and spending time listening to their take on life was wonderful.

Zentangle Workshop Zen-doodle on the go Actually, if truth be told, I don't have anywhere special to do my zendoodles. I have a corner of a large bedroom, where my computer, printer, art materials and workspace live. Cockles N Mussels 'N' CLAMS, too! (I love seafood!) You're probably familiar with the tangle 'Nzeppel. Cockles 'n' Mussels begins with a random version of 'Nzeppel and moves on from there.

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. It can be drawn with any size so that gives it a lot of variety. You can also "warp" it easily simply by making the beginning lines not parallel. Sometimes I have "bleed over" of a pattern into a string or a tangle might be open and feel like it needs a background--this is a really versatile answer to those things. Tangle Harmony Circular Grid Patterns with Geneviève’s Mandala Stencils All of us who do any kind of pattern drawing are familiar with grid patterns, patterns that drawn on a square grid like these, tow of my favourites: The mandala stencils are essentially a circular grid tool.
