I just loved the opposition suggested by those words...
"Zen" implying a smooth sort of flowing ease (which I would love to achieve) and "Tangle" implying utter 4 year-old chaos (hair, shoelaces, etc. which I have achieved on any number of occasions).
Turns out the concept is a catchy term for doodling...primarily with black ink.
Think of it as a sort of tattoo for inanimate objects (minus the pain, butterflies, declarations of love for mom, country or some barmaid named Bernice).
|I decided my old bamboo lazy-Susan would be my first victim...er...project.|
|Then I added in the red and brown.|
Side note - Dave hated it at this stage - he said it looked "blotchy".
Explaining "zen", "tangle" or even "shading" required far too much effort so I stuck my tongue out at him instead.
|It's officially ZEN-TANGLED!|
