AEDM Day 22


After seeing all of the wonderful doodles and zentangles, I just had to try one. I tried some actual zentangle patterns and some of my own ideas. I can see how it could be a meditative process. You get caught up in your designs and the repetitiveness. I kept wondering if I would run out of ink. I used a fine black Sharpie pen that is not supposed to bleed through paper and it didn't! It was fun to try something new. So many great and fun ideas have shown up during this month.

  2. Hola Susie!
    I agree with you, when I first start drawing something intricate, it appears a little overwhelming, then when you are done you wish for more. It's addictive : )
    Great job on yours, it's like a quilt, or fields from an airplain view.
    Thank you for visiting my blog.

  6. Susie, I had to check out your site today, just to find out what a "zentangle" is! I really like yours - it's so intricate. I am finding during my AEDM creating that I've become more impatient and have a shortened attention span from what I remember - probably from being pulled in so many different directions every day (like every other working parent). I'm going to keep this in mind, though, and see if I can try to focus on the "zen" part, instead of the "tangle"! :-)

  7. Cool Susie!
    I love how AEDM is exposing us to new forms of art and providing a safe and welcoming space to experiment. Your zentangle is awesome. I love the fine Sharpies too!

  10. I also love the getting inspiration from others.
    The zentangles look great, but I think the effect the twine gave is quite nice in its own way.
