Line Design Explained : Deluxe Edition I was asked if I could go into a bit more detail concerning the Line Design "process". I think the easiest way is with a few more pictures than my previous post on "how to". I hope this helps...and as always...if you ever have questions about anything on my blog...e-mail me at The materials you need for this project are good drawing paper(9x12...but could be done any size), Sharpie Marker, and your choice of media(see the bottom of this post for some ideas).

Zentangle® Hi All, I know this isn't watercolor, although I do combine it with watercolors sometimes, but I'm answering the question that was raised in this morning's "WASH" as to what zentangle® is. I've become a Certified Zentangle Teacher, or CZT, since I used to hang around here in WC and I just wanted to post this somewhere where those who asked the question as to what zentangle® is would see the answer. (My making anywhere near beginning of the "Daily Wash" thread is a rarity.)

Patterns that I have developed 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. Doodle Addicted No, there are no bees in this doodle drawing. It’s me that’s been the busy bee! We recently had a big business event which had been consuming all of my time. But it’s done now (and was a huge success!) So I give you another flower doodle. 100+ Impressive Black and White Patterns Collection You could have been in awe of the many freebies that Naldz started to share with you guys since the beginning of the year but it’s just a few from the many that you’ll be expecting the whole year round.

New tangle or tangleation? What do you this a new tangle or a tangleation of keeko? It starts with keeko but reminds me of the knots in macramé. Years ago I loved making macramé pot plant hangers and wall hangings so I thought a good name might be mak-rah-mee (the pronunciation from the dictionary). You can just do one knot or add as many as you like in lines or random over your tile. Loop, tie, weave and tangle. Zentangle What is a Zentangle? In a word, a doodle. A structured, contained doodle. The term 'Zentangle' was coined by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas when, one day, Maria described her experience, as she created her art, as "feeling timeless, free and engendering a sense of deep well-being". Rick recognised that she was in a meditative state and so Zentangles were born. I use the technique of Zentangle in my own artwork, incorporating them into sketching, art-journalling and collage.

Zentangle: Meditation Through Pattern-Drawing by Maria Popova If greater creativity and more mental balance are among your new year’s resolutions, look no further than Zentangle — a type of meditation achieved through pattern-making, created by artist duo Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. Each pattern is built one line at a time, organically combining simple patterns into complex zentangles in unplanned, unexpected ways that grow, change and unfold on the page as you enter an immersive state of flow.
