What is Zentangle?

Hey guys,

I mentioned the word Zentangle in my last blog article and some of you might not now, what that exactly means. Therefore, I decided to write an article about Zentangle.

Zentangle is a drawing and relaxation method where you draw different, complex patterns on a 3.5-inch (89 mm) square paper tile. The method was invented by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Sadly I can not describe you exactly how to create Zentangles because the method is protected and may only be taught by certified teachers but there are a few books and blogs by certified teachers wich describe the method. For example, the book “One Zentangle A Day” by Beckah Krahula that I mentioned in my last blog article. You can also read further information about Zentangle on the official website if you are interested.

“One Zentangle A Day” Book Review

Hey guys,

Today I want to show you a book that I really like. It’s about the book “One Zentangle A Day” by Beckah Krahula. The book teaches the art and relaxation method Zentangle.

The book is separated into six chapters, each one with seven daily exercises. Each exercise includes new patterns for your Zentangles and tips to help you to improve them. Most of the patterns are really beautiful. The only drawback of the book is that the patterns are not explained very well, in my opinion. I would recommend this book anyway because it starts very slow and suitable for beginners, but get more and more complex over time.

Lastly, I want to show you my Zentangles from the first chapter of the book.
