Totally Easy Zentangle With A Simple Step by Step Guide 2021
The Easy Zentangle project is still one of my favorites on the blog, and I know why: doodling is incredibly relaxing. There aren’t any specific patterns, techniques, or certified teachers; anything goes as long as you have a pen and paper and a willingness to put in a little effort.
How to Make This Zentangle Project
It took me a few hours to complete a tangle, so if you want to start small, make a few overlapping circles in the middle of the page or cut/rip your paper in half and tangle on half of it.
Extra Zentangles Tips
You can go back in later and add more lines/patterns if you see a spot that looks too empty. Alternate darker and lighter-looking patterns for an overall visual balance. I like to use this type of project as a way to relax.
