Zentangle Moleskin 2

Obviously there is something about zentangles that calls to me. I made the pledge (to myself) to do another accordian moleskin. The format will be a mandala followed by a "free motion" design. Yes, it's calming to do, but it also calms the mind and that is good for me. There is an element that helps me to work out of my comfort zone and to learn contrast, color and other arty concepts.


The center circle and the two circles to shape the outer band were done with templates and a compass. All the rest is created freehand. OK, a ruler for the bands on the side.


Each page is an enjoyable lesson. There are so many techniques and designs that can be learned and incorporated. Oh boy, what is next!

I'm going to take the Zentangle webinar at Create Mixed Media on Thursday. I love seeing yours and think I might like doing some when I'm doodling during visits with my Mom.

These are just beautiful. I especially love the mandala - it's just perfect in its balance and variety. This will be a spectacular book, I've no doubt. nancy

Beautiful work Sandra! You have a real eye for composition. I agree with Nancy's comment about perfect balance and variety. Perhaps, it's the quilter in you coming through. :-)

I look forward to seeing the progression of your moleskin!

your zens are ever so cool looking :) For some reason, they are very well balanced!

Hi Sandra: Beautiful! I love the use of colors in both pieces. The mandala is beautiful and I like the way you've framed it. Thanks for sharing.
