I found a nice chunky notebook to work in.
I got into this because I'm a doodler, and just wanted to add some variety to my doodling. You know, something a little more interesting than my usual crosshatching. What I didn't expect, was how relaxed Zentangling made me feel.
My first designs are very simple, since I didn't have a whole lot of tangles to work with...yet. I think the designs grew in interest and complexity, and I have found that a few minutes of Zentangling is a much better and more calming way to begin each day than my usual coffee and email. (Oh, those come later, I'm still me).
Here are a few, in chronological order. I'm about 2/3 through the book, by the way.
The chapter I'm working on now deals with adding color. In the first design, I used colored pencils, in the second, watercolors.
