After running around all weekend I sat down with my Zentangles while some of the new fall shows came on TV. While I can't say I was overly impressed by the new shows, I did enjoy going back to some basic tangles. No thought, nothing preplanned. I just went with it. Well, all right, I did use colored cardstock and a colored pen and colored pencil.
That is the essence of Zentangle, just go with it. Relax, watch the ink as it flows onto the paper. Breathe! Let the magic of Zentangle do its thing.
