The Intricate Details. You eyes are constantly dancing when you look that these designs.

Using this Template was fun. This is the first Zentangle I did using this Template, but I've done other Zentangles on cut invididuals squares of card stock.

My favorite pens are the Micron 01 to 08 permanent markers that was recommended from Zentangle Book #2 (first book I bought from Beverly's Crafts).

I've been mostly spending my evenings at the dining room table after dinner tangling away. I even sneak some tangling time at work when it's slow or during my lunch break.

I found out about Zentangle by accident. I was shopping at Beverly's Crafts and I always stop by the Craft Books Section no matter what I originally went there for. I saw this ""Zentangle 2 book that looked so intricate and I had to buy it. The designs in this book looked so cool put together. By the next day, I was shopping for materials from this book to try a few zentangle designs and the rest is history. I became interested in Zentangle less than a Month ago from this one book. I bought the Zentangle 2 book over 2 weeks ago. I found the zentangle website they provided inside this book and discovered they had published the first "Zentangle" before number 2 book and "Totally Tangled" plus, just yesterday I discovered "Zentangle 3" book at Beverly's and bought it right away. I ordered the Book 1 and Totally Tangled through mail order from "Design Originals". Now the Local Beverly's I always shop at carries all 4 Zentangle Books!

I even ordered a Zentangle Kit that came in the mail 2 days ago and I will be attending a beginners Zentangle Workshop in San Jose in August.

I also bought a yellow T-Shirt that I want to do Zentangle Designs on, but I have to wash it first.

Zentangle 3 Book
by: Cookie

Hi, Dorothy

Yes, there is a book on Zentangle 3 written by Design Originals. If you can't find this book at any local craft stores in your area or even Beverly's Crafts or Michaels Crafts, then go on line to Design Originals' web site and order it from them.

Zentangle 3's catalog number is 3454. The books costs $ 8.99 or $ 9.99 each.

The catalog number for the 1st Zentangle book is 3450.
The catalog number for the 2nd Zentangle book is 3452.
They also have a book called "Totally Tangled", catalog number 5360, but I forgot what I paid for it. Probably no more than $ 15.00.

Hope this helps

Thank you guys for the nice Compliment on my Zentangle
by: Cookie

Thank you both, Janeen and Helen for your nice compliments on my Zentangles.

Janeen? I'm not sure what you mean about post my zentangle to my "Page". Do you mean a Blog page? I have a blog, but I haven't used in a long time. I will have it look it up.

Hi, Helen. That zentangle took me close to a week to complete. I drew an average of 2 or 3 square segments each until it was full.

The original size was done on an 11 x 8-1/2" sheet of cardstock paper. I love drawing on cardstock paper or any other thick papers. I keep a supply of those document protectors around that I can fit my drawing in to keep clean. I'm planning on drawing more zentangles using this template and it's going to be hard enough deciding which ones to frame.

I'm even designing some of my own zentangle designs that I want to post to the Tangle Patterns link. Designing your own patterns is fun, too.

Answer to Ruth's Question from Boulder Creek
by: Cookie

Hi, Ruth

The class I signed up for in San Jose will take place on August 28, and taught by Barbara Allen who's email is If you look in the website and look for the link with the list of certified Zentangle Teachers, you will find Barbara Allen listed under the State of California.
She is also teaching this class on September 18th in Santa Cruz and both classes falls on a Saturday. It's only $ 35.00 includes an intro kit with a $ 10 value. Great price! This is an Introduction Zentagle Class. I would give you Barbara Allen's phone number, but email her. She will write back. Her class starts at 2 p.m. and ends 4:30 p.m. I hope this helps.

Hi Andrea,

I love the Zentangles that you produced, they must have taken you ages, and I can totally appreciate that they are probably addictive too lol. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing.
