I have a Canson Mixed Media Journal
that I've been using to use up leftover paint, or ink on stencils. The cover looks like this:
And the pages I used to use up leftover paint and sprays look like this:
SEI Tumble dye on a Crafters Workshop stencil. You get the reversed image when using up the ink left on the stencil.
Here's a tangle I started on a page with some acrylic paint wiped off on it.
This is the completed tangle. Designs were inspired by patterns and gallery examples in the following Zentange Books.
Joy of Zentangle - you can check it out on Amazon by clicking HERE.
This book has 101 patterns to learn and use. Plus lot's of great Zentangle examples to inspire.

This book has about 12 Zentangle patterns but lot's of info and great examples to inspire.
You can learn all about Zentangle and the creative people that started this trend by checking out their website Zentangle.com by clicking HERE.
It's alot of fun and very relaxing if you let yourself give it a try and truly enjoy. You don't have to be creative - just need the desire to relax and let it stop all the thoughts flying around in your head!
Works for me!
Thanks for taking a look.
