Zentangle



 
 
Have you ever tried zentangling?  These are the results of my first try.  For people like me who absolutely cannot draw, these patterns are a lot of fun.  Zentangle is using simple lines to create structured patterns.  For the starburst pattern, you draw lots of triangles.  For the leaf pattern, you start with a slightly curved line and then add half moon shapes.  Both designs are made with very simple components. 
 

 
 
I started with watercolor paper and used a regular pencil to draw the lines.  Then I colored the leaves with watercolor pencils and used a paintbrush to blend the colors together.  Visit www.zentangle.com for endless patterns and ideas.
