Zentangle Swap

Inspirational Quote

Starting out with an Inspirational Quote.  I hope it inspires you.

This Zentangle Swap called for tangles drawn on tiles  (3.5″ x 3.5″) using only black Micron pens.  It has filled my evenings and some days with a relaxed engrossing project.  My group consists of fifteen people across the United States and overseas (United Kingdom, Australia and Canada)    What I love about Zentangle is that it requires total concentration and lots of creativity.

Most of the tangles just popped into my mind, but towards the end, I used the Random Tangle Selector offered on TanglePatterns.com in conjunction with the list of Tangles Patterns 2014 Guide.  (See TanglePatterns.com for the download.)  What made using the random selector fun was how to creatively arrange the random tangles that appeared.

I have all my tiles in stamped envelopes ready to go.  I hope the recipients like what I’ve created.

  1. These are truly beautiful. I have just begun doing Zentangle & ZIA art & I LOVE THIS artwork. I have finally found something I am good at. Thank you for sharing, I can’t wait to get involved with a swap myself! I am adding Reiki energy to my work as well.
