I took a beginning class with Grace Mendez on the art of zentangle. Zentangle is an easy-to-learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. The tools we used to create the drawings include a pencil, a smudging stick, Sakura micron pen 01, and paper tiles which are mould-made, acid-free, 100% cotton, heavy-weight print-making paper with a vellum surface. The paper is die cut and has a deckle edge. The kit came in a canvas bag so I’m ready to travel with tangles!
I took this class thinking that it could open my mind to new designs that I could use for quilting. The class was fun and relaxing and I can definitely see the possibilities for translating this into needle and thread work.
