It's fun to think of new places to tangle.
My daughter and I do a lot of art projects, and I love to incorporate my tangles into our crafts. Whether we're playing with chalk on the driveway or coloring pictures, I often find little Printemps and other patterns popping up in my art.
One of my daughter's favorite activities is to paint with water on a chalkboard. We were at a play place with a massive chalkboard wall. While she painted shapes, I saw a perfect canvas for some Ennies. It was fun to create the pattern on a bigger scale with water. I loved watching the bold, black lines appear while others dried and faded. It was like I was working on a large Buddha Board. One space would start to dry so I went over it again with the brush. It was wonderfully relaxing to tangle over and over in the same spot. I didn't think about patterns or filling areas. I didn't worry about the end product or if I'd give the piece as a gift.
I put water on a chalkboard. I repeated my strokes. I used the Zentangle® Method. I was relaxed and present in the moment alongside my daughter making art that disappeared while it created a lovely memory for us.
