Z is for Zentangle

Z is for an art form called Zentangle.   I think everyone who finishes A-Z deserves a star.
I didn't draw this. When life resumes to normal, I would like to give it a try.  This photo is by:

They call this art form yoga for your brain!  There is even a book with this title.

 Another one called Totally Tangled.  Great names, don't you think?!  

My friend Renee Zarate  is a CZT- a Certified Zentangle Teacher.  I wrote a poem based on her art. 

Congrats, to all who cross the A-Z blogging finish line!  I have to say I was amazed, by all the unique post, so much zest!  I will do a sum up post on May 7th, to share my thoughts n' feelings on this year's challenge.    Ta dah, You are a star ;D 

Maybe we need a music for our ending.  A would be Adele or Avenged Sevenfold and well
Z, ZZ Top of course~



And R would be for Rush of course!
We did it - another year of A to Z. We came, we saw, we kicked its butt.

I have never heard of zetangle before but I can see why it would be called yoga for the brain. Congrats on completing the challenge.

When you said '...until things get back to normal', hope things are ok.

Thanks for introducing zetangle to me.

Have a 'normal' wonderful day.

I could stare that this kind of thing for hours--and probably will!
Yoga for your brain - I love that!
Johanna Garth said…
Zentangle makes me happy. I'm off to do yoga for my body this morning but now I can also say I've done it for my brain too ;)

Hi Ella. I do zentangle and line weaving with some color. You can take a look here:

I'm so glad to have found you again. And then to find the zentangle as well, Wow.

I hadn't heard of zentangle before - that image is beautiful, and I like the idea of yoga for the brain
nene said…
Oooops! No wonder I've not found it. It's because I misspelled 'zentangle'. Don't lQQk at my previous comment. Don't lQQk, your lQQking.

I love zentangles! I don't necessarily do them "properly," but they are my new favorite way to doodle in meetings when I'm bored! I look like I'm busily taking notes!
Great post and congrats on completing the course.

"ZZ Top, of course!" Love it.
The zentangle looks SO intricate. I'm more apt to doodle house plans, nothing fancy.
I hope you get back to normal soon.
Laura said…
congratulations on completing this task...zentangles really are a lot of fun...I hope you give them a go.
Ella said…
I'm having internet issues...augh!
I will be making the rounds later this evening and comment~!

Nene...you crack me up! I'll be back to L@@K ;D

Just noticed your comment saying you were having internet issues as I was planning to say something similar. Sorry I haven't made it by your site as often as I would have liked, but I've been trying to make it through the list and be it slow computer, internet, or what, it seems like I've been plodding through April with 2 cylinders and one flat tire. Hope you had a great time my dear blog friend.

Congratulations on making it through the A to Z Challenge. Join us on May 7th with your Challenge Reflections post.

Wow! Congrats on accomplishing your goal. Your A-Z project was huge, you did a beautiful job. Those strawberries look SO good. Thank you for the Zentangle mention. I saw your Tea Bag project in the current magazine. Really beautiful idea!!
Amanda Trought said…
Well done for making it to the end, it has been a great journey, can't believe it went so fast. I came across Zentangles a while back they are great, and really are soothing, especially to take your mind off things, I guess an extension of doodling.... Stay blessed! Amandax
Ella said…

I have to run to store to get more supplies....(Lowe's) for FROG.

Never heard of a Zentangle, before, but there's no question in my mind that this is a Virgoan concept. Though each section is different, they are each and every one precise. Very yoga-y... Love it, love it, love it. Definitely going to expand my doodling and find that book! Thanks for stopping by.
