I have been really busy last week and this with preparation work for the new term.
I do, however, have found lots of pictures that I took of Zentangle patterns that I designed whilst on holiday.
The first one that I want to show you is this, which I do have to say I am rather pleased with. I have devoted a small sketchbook to my Zentangling and I drew this circle in it before I left home.
I started with the waves on the right hand side and then added more shapes. I did this at the kitchen table at my sister in laws house and was so focused that i did not realise until I looked up that there were four people watching me!! I used a black sharpie pen and a black fine gel pen.
This was the next one that I started as soon as I completed the circle, which is unusual for me. There is normally several weeks in-between. Here I combined several of my own patterns with some that I have found on Tangled.com and google.
I have just been looking through my sketchbook and realised that I have not taken pictures of six other Zentangles so I shall post them tomorrow.
I shall show my sketchbook and go through the pens that I use too as you might like to try this for yourself. It is very addictive and can be tried by any age.. Kids love it!!!Below are some designs created by my year 7 students just before the end of term. they took to it straight away.....
They did very well, didn't they?
