More Zentangles - I just wanted to "experiment" with zentangles intentionally started
a certain way - the outline.......I like the way it turned out - not as much
a surprise to me the way it came together because it was planned---do you know
what I mean?
The piece above was not formed by just free flowing lines and then me looking
at it to see what shapes I notice and how to start---this one was planned...and
it took me longer to do - hmmmmm---I wonder if that is connected in some way.
I tried to trim off the photo of all the extra in it - so that you can get a close look
at the piece but my psp kept crashing (
which is typical of windows vista)..but hopefully
you can see all you want of it.
Well - off to doodle some more - and how are your creative juices doing?

What I especially adore about this is the infiniteness of it. Do you see the stacked infinity symbols, over and over?

Love love love it! So grateful we discovered Zentangles!

yes, I saw stacked infinity symbols too!
love the variety of shapes you used - nice balance between the curves and lines.

Hi Ellie...
What unique zentangles.. they make me smile.. and love the thread at both ends.. look like I could pull either one and it would unravel.. now that's life-like creativity!

What a clever way to work on the Zentangles! I too want to pull the thread to see what happened. I used to do Zentangles as well but stopped for other type of drawing. Looking at yours, I'm thinking of doing it again. Thank you for sharing! :)
