Have you ever heard of "tangling" before? Zentangle is a process that was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, and it is a unique art form that anyone can sit down and create. It was designed for people of all ages and all artistic skill-levels as a means of relaxing through sketching these repetitive patterns---hence, the name Zentangle. The steps are incredibly basic: squiggle lines on paper at random, fill in the lines with opposing patterns, and add shading. It's as simple as that! You won't believe the incredible art you'll create from such a simple and enjoyable process.

Several books have already been released on Zentangle from Design Originals, an imprint of Fox Chapel Publishing. These books all offer excellent techniques and tips on the art of "tangling," or Zentangle. Zentangle is explained so clearly as to make the art seem effortless, and in a way, that is the purpose. The process is designed to be relaxing and rewarding, regardless of artistic skill level.

Maria Browning, author of Time to Tangle with Colors, takes the concept of Zentangle in another direction as she focuses on the art of coloring in the beautiful Zentangle designs. In categorizing her book by the various mediums used, Browning clearly defines all of the benefits and techniques associated with each pencil, marker, and pen. In the second half of the book, she shows various projects Zentangle can be applied to. One of these projects is cardmaking, perfect for Christmas crafting! From scrapbook pages to photo frames to landscapes and more, the ideas are abundant and seemingly endless in this wonderful book. Grab friends, children, students, coworkers, anyone! Sit down together and get creative in the most relaxing way possible when you learn the art of Zentangle.
