Colour Zentagle Patterns

This is one of my early attempts of trying a more flowery look to the pattern.  Not quite sure if I pulled it off or not and it did get a little untidy towards the edges of the paper, but on the whole it was a good start.  I used artist cartridge paper and a black fine liner pen.  I added some detail with a black felt tip pen.
This was the second attempt and I have since added more black to the background areas to bring the shapes out more.  I have yet to take a picture of it.
This was again done with a much thinner pen nib and I have added more detail with a thicker sharpie pen.  I have to admit that I prefer the doodle with the thicker pen.
Again, an early attempt and I wanted to see what it would look like of colour was added.  So I used some watercolour paints.  It turned out alright but I think much stronger colours would have looked much more striking.
I stopped doing this one as I did not like the background and I could not salvage it!
I really love doing these patterns and I think that I have maybe started something with the Year 7 Textiles group, especially as a few said that other members of the family joined in and also had a go and creating some patterns!

I tried doing Zentangle but it didn't flow for me at all. Yours look good, is there some 'secret' to getting the rhythm?

When I started it did not 'flow; for me either but I liked it so much that I kept having a go. I think that I now understand what I should be doing.xx
