Some friends and I have been going through Storyline (which is a life coaching kind of tool).
I realized, as I worked my way through the pages, that I had dropped many of my usual creative outlets. For my sanity, I need to be creative, so I’ve been praying and thinking about options.
I ran across Zentangle® a couple weeks back and decided to give it a go. It’s a simple art form (it’s relatively easy to learn the basics) and offers endless hours of creative fun. I started with plain ol’ paper, a fine point Sharpie and a mechanical pencil (though I highly recommend the good quality materials you can buy from Zentangle.com). There are hundreds of Zentangle patterns to choose from. If you Google “Zentangle” or search for it on Pinterest, you will find amazing examples to learn from and enjoy. Also check your local library for Zentangle books.
I share this because:
♥ I like to share cool stuff.
♥ I want to remind us all that we need to take care of ourselves in order to be healthy people.
Being personally healthy is a great building block for a healthy marriage.
The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. “Zentangle” is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.
