In January 2007 I did my first free form mandala. I posted a few on this Blog, but it wasn't long before I realized I was addicted to them and started another Blog, Teri's Mandalas so they could have their own space.
It was about this time that Linda told me about Zentangles.
At that time they were teaching the use of a square to make a zentangle. So I tried the one above but did not like the constraints of the square and did not do anymore.
I kept doing mandalas until I saw this design on the Zentangles website and tried it in a mandala.
That was the start.
I did this zentangle in November 2008 and suddenly I was in love with zentangles!
This is the one I posted yesterday. Who said it had to be contained in a square!
Isn't that what art is, taking new steps into creativity?!
This look back was fun for me to do and see how zentangling grew to such a force in my life.
But now I seem to have lost my muse for mandalas.
You can't make a mistake when doing a zentangle. Once you start, it almost becomes a meditation. Look at the Zentangles website and you will get lots of ideas.
