Colored Zentangles





I did these for a swap and I tried them a couple different ways, since the host didn't specify how to make them colored. First I tried making the lines with different colors, in very fine lines with my Micron Pigma 005 pens. That's the middle picture. This was okay, but very time-consuming. Then I tried doing fatter lines with my gel pens, that's the top picture. Mm, okay. But my favorite are the bottom four, with the lines still done in black, and then portions of the sections colored in, and then only using 3 different colors. My very favorite is the pink blue and orange one, which I titled "Circus Circus." I joined a new Yahoo group that I'm getting a lot of inspiration from, called Zentangle Fanatics. Check it out and join if you're into Zentangles.

Well, I can't remember what zentangles are, but these cards are so cool, I really want to make some. I agree on your favorite one, but I like them all.

Hi. These are really intersting! I'd like to learn how to do these. Is there a method? I went to the "zentangle fanatics" yahoo group but I'm getting an error. Is the group still active?
