I’ve been hearing about something called Zentangle recently. Without knowing much about it, I assumed it was a type of Yoga. Well, it’s not. It’s art!

From the Zengtangle website:

Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity. Zentangle provides artistic satisfaction and an increased sense of personal well being. Zentangle is enjoyed by a wide range of skills and ages  and is used in many fields of interest.

I was browsing through various sites and there is some really gorgeous work out there! I think this art form would be right up my alley as I frequently tend to doodle on things in repetitive patterns. I think I’m going to learn more about this and do it!

Here’s a piece on ByDesignForWomen.com that I found inspiring. It’s representative of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
