My first 'zentangle inspired art'

Technically, those who coined the phrase 'zentangle' define it as filling a 3.5" square with patterns they call tangles. Anything that doesn't fit into that description but still uses the tangles has been coined 'zentangle inspired art'.

I jumped right in to one of those. In exploring what zentangles are, I found the zentangle gallery on flickr. While on there, someone had done one ZIA that really resembled a topographic map. I love geology, so it really stuck with me, and I made my first ZIA in that style.

This was done on a sheet of 8.5x11 cardstock (acid free) with a Staedtler pen using the tangles tipple, hibred, cadent, zingiber, and hurry


  1. Hi Tammy, thanks for popping over to my blog and welcome to our fun addiction! You have made a super start. Happy tangling!

  2. Thank you. :) I love doing this. It's just the perfect thing for me. :D
