Zentangles and Doodling Around
It was fun playing around with lines and shapes on this drawing. I was trying to get a mix of things going on, but wonder if it is too busy. I suppose that all depends upon one's perspective on any given day. In a way I like all the activity going on because there is a lot to look at and notice in the design. But then again, I wonder if it is a bit disjointed and erratic. Not so peaceful to look at. It does seem to have a lot of energy about it. Lots of activity going on there.
I read about some Zentangle swaps on Swap-bot.com and considered doing some. So far I haven't signed up for any of those. One swap that sounded interesting was to draw up a little mini book filled with a minimum of 15 tangle patterns. Now that would be a good exercise and help me in learning some of the established patterns. There are a whole lot of patterns out there. A quick peek at TanglePatterns.com will lead you to lots more info about doing these little drawings. It really is a fun hobby to partake in.
Here's a link I found from the Zentangle Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6h0XuK95omE Go take a peek at their how-to video and I know you will have fun doodling and tangling as well.
