Zentangle Class Show and Tell

Took another Zentangle class with my favorite CZT, Jeanne Paglio at Laurie’s Art Learning Center. The women and young girls in attendance were fun and amazingly creative.

Following are the tangles I produced in our two hours together.

I tend to use lots of curly, loopy patterns, so was happy to find a straight lined pattern that I LOVE. I’m currently reading The Canopy by Angela Hunt. This tile reminds me of a dark rain forest with vines.
I named this tile: Canopy.

When we ‘dropped the string’ for this tile, I made more loops and spaces than any one in the class, so I finished this at home. It reminds me of a meadow in a thunder and lightning storm. The name of this tile: Rainy Meadow.

This little flower was fun to do. I think it would be adorable cut out with a scalloped circle die and used on a card.  I titled this tile: Funky Flower.

For this tile, Jeanne challenged us to use our non-dominant hand. A good practice that forces us to use the other side of our brain. It was hard to do, but oh-so satisfying to see the pattern come together as we tangled. When I was finished I felt as though I was looking out of an airplane and seeing the fresh tilled fields of farmland. I titled this tile: Farmland.

Odd how my brain was so focused on the earth when choosing titles for my work.

At the end of class, we were presented with a little ‘wand’. The card reads: To help inspire the Zentangle in you! Relax – Reflect –  Renew – Replenish & Reveal (the artist within)

  1. Very creative. The first one with all the loops seems to have a naturally accuring 3 D effect to it. Gerry

  2. Ya know, Gerry, I looked at this tile thinking “there’s something about this one…” and I kept turning it round and round – like my eyes were wonky. Didn’t think of 3-D!! Thanks so much for pointing that out! And thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Have a great Friday.
