When I got that nasty flu a little while ago I decided I could use a hobby that would take very little time or skill and would just be relaxing and without any pressure whatsoever. Zentangles came to mind. So I ordered a book!
It took a while to decide, because there are so many, but I ended up picking One Zentangle a Day by Beckah Krahula.
Of course it only arrived two days ago. But in those two days I've been zentangling like crazy. I love it!
Every spread is a one day tutorial and it teaches you three patterns that you can use to fill in the zentangle. It might seem a little simple, and it is. However, it is great having a manual and seeing all those neat little patterns that I might not have come up with myself.
The picture above is my very first zentangle. Is it simple? Yes. Is it kinda messy? Sure. Did I have fun making it? Hell yeah! I love this new hobby. Don't be surprised if you see more of these popping up in the future...
