Discovering Zentangle (Rediscovering My Inner Doodler)

OK, so this morning I was perusing my Blog Feed when I popped on over to Beverly's's Place who happens to be participating in the ICAD Challenge along with me and many others. Well she shared something called "Zentangle" which I decided to try. Since it was a rainy day here, in The Ocean State, I thought my girl could also join in as she has been doing the ICAD challenge with me, albeit at a more relaxed pace. 

Well, let me tell you this ICAD challenge has been like a BLAST of Creative JUICE flowing through my veins! This week I have been having a blast but I had to share this fun therapeutic activity with all of my Followers, Bloggy, Writer and Artist (who already know all about this I bet!) friends... 

Zentangle is basically glorified doodling! But even more fun and once you start it's like the Lays Potato Chip of INDEX CARD art- You can't stop at just one! 

So go ahead, and doodle away! 

I will share the individual photos in an upcoming ICAD Challenge Post!
(Sorry for the photo quality - this is a phone pic!)


  1. These are so wonderful and when I have done this kind of doodling it usually began as boredom during a sermon or teaching and then morphed into a totally therapeutic activity!

  2. Love the Lay's potato chip analogy! I've been wanting to zentangle, one of these days...

    1. Dawn (haha, all these Dawn's here! Love it!) You really oughta give zentangle a shot, so much fun! Check out http://tanglepatterns.com to help you get started. It takes no time, you can tangle with whatever pens and paper you have on hand and you'll be hooked instantly!

  3. Hi Dawn!
    Great cards! It's so awesome your daughter is creating right along with you for ICAD--too much fun! I love that rainbow swirly card and your zentangle doodles are fantastic!! Who knew a simple pack of index cards could lead to so much fun?! Happy Friday!

  4. I have never tried this ... but I do love to doodle.

    So delighted to meet you. I hope you don’t mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip into some serious goodness.

    I would love you to share this post! A group of moms gather each week. I usually post on Mondays, but missed it this week. I start jotting a few notes and then others join in. You can post whenever, doesn’t have to be anything new, it can be a gem nestled in your pages. I get the filled to the brim momma schedules.

    Just moms. Sharing our notes. Creating a melody.

    Be blessed,


walk along the shore with me and leave your footprints in the sand-
I'm listening, friend...in November I will not be replying so often, but instead slip quietly over to your place for a visit. ;)
