Zentangles and ZIA

My latest obsession.

The Zentangle® art form and method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas and is copyrighted. Zentangle® is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more atzentangle.com.

I’ve recently realised it’s a whole year since I “discovered” Zentangle. I still feel like a beginner when I look at what other people do but, for what it’s worth, these are some of the things I’ve done.  I was going to put them with the oldest ones at the top and the newer ones lower down but I’ve decided on doing it the other way so, as you scroll down the page, you are going back  in time to August 2013.

January 2016 – Recently updated and now showing just over two years.
