Zentangle Fun

Have you heard of zentangles? If you love doodles and doodling then you'll love the zentangle art form as well. In my search to learn more about it I came across this fabulous site It was there that I found Sandy Steen Bartholomew's books on Zentangles. I started with her first book Totally Tangled and was hooked! When her second book Yoga for Your Brain came out, I just had to have it. Well, Sandy has written another book, Zentangle for Kids and with it's release, she is having a contest! The grand prize is an Official Zentangle Kit and a copy of  her Zentangle for Kids book, both of which are on my wish list. I just had to enter. For Sandy's contest, she is in need of minions, minions made to look like her daughter Lilah's little Lilah Beans. Super cute and really fun and I set out to make some. I made a necklace for Sandy and Lilah and you can see my entry here and everyone's entries here. You can also vote for the entry you like best on the poll on the left hand side of the blog. Let me tell you, it's a tough choice, all of the entries are great and I'm excited to be a part of this contest!

Sandy sells all of her books along with zentangle supplies and kits in her Etsy shop and don't forget to check out her BEEZ in the Belfry blog as well as her Zentangle for Kids blog!

The picture above is my first zentangle inspired artwork :)

Thanks for mentioning the blog and the contest! I absolutely ADORE the Lilah Beads you sent! And your first attempt at a Zentangle is quite impressive - love the grass.
