My first Zentangles.....





My friend, Janet (as shown in a prior posting), got me into an invitation only Zentangle book.
I had never done a Zentangle on purpose, except for a practice one in a journal swap. So I did what I truly love to do: research! Lots and lots of Internet searching and I found lots and lots of inspiration from various sites (thanks to you all out there), and tutorials here .
And here are my Zentangles and the front & back covers.

Who knew you had all those Zantangles hidden in you!
They are beautiful, fantastic and all around magnificent!
I love the way you implement the lines! I see something different each time I look at them! My favorites are the tree and your name, but all of them are truly beautiful and so expressive of your talent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
