Zen Tangling

I was out of town this past weekend and while visiting daughter Emily in Savannah, we made a trip to the local college bookstore.  I love a good bookstore!  I picked up some Micron pens and a couple of books of heavy weight paper and started 'doing' some Zen Tangles.  Have you tried this art?  It is just so interesting!  I first heard about this art form while attending a quilting retreat this past summer with Deloa Jones and Jamie Wallen.  They both recommend "doodling" with Zen Tangles as a way to open up your eyes to the beautiful forms and shapes in the universe.  My artistic side is starting to come to life, and working with the Zen Tangle doodling is an eye-opener.   I thought there would be a lot of pressure to "do it right" but there isn't!  You just doodle and when it's finished, it's finished!  I bought the book Zen Mandalas and the book Totally Tangled  to start the Zen Tangling thing.

Here's a picture of my very first Zen Tangle ...

  1. I will have to try this. It looks interesting. Kind of like meditating on paper it seems.
