While the name Zentangle is the property of Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas (check out their website here ) people have been doing similar doodles for centuries. Just look at the carvings on stones and patterns found in nature. Fractals such as ferns are particularly good tangles.
I'm going to Spalding on Thursday for a few days, Keith wants to go to the woodworking show there and to visit the Imperial War Museum near Cambridge. As he's very good a taking me where I want to go its his turn now. I'll be taking along my tangling kit and hope to be creative. I'll show you what I do when I get back.
Meanwhile the postman has been busy again. Deb Cragan's Textured Landscape is a collage of items and very effective too. It looks better in real like than my poor scanning.
These two beauties are from Pauline Mackenzie in Australia. Pauline is obviously an artist just look at her painted card (top) and her Textured Landscape (bottom) she has a great eye for colour.
Back to tangling I bought Yoga for the Brain - A Zentangle Workout by Sandy Steen Bartholomew. It's not only full of patterns but some really great ideas and a book I would recommend. I'm taking it away with me.
