Creating colorful Zentangle-inspired mini canvases

This post contains a videoThis new video featuring CZT® Leslie Crumpler of Sakura could be a fun summer project for sharing Zentangle®-inspired art with kids. Young and old.

“Neon is such a hot trend right now and Sakura’s Gelly Roll Moonlight pens come in a lot of bright neon colors, so we thought it’d be fun to create bold, easy artwork using our colorful pens and markers on mini canvases. You don’t even need to use messy paint supplies.”

Leslie demonstrates using the official Zentangle pattern, Rain.

This is a quick and easy project with lots of possibilities (Christmas gifts, anyone?), enjoy!

All you need for this project — besides great tangles from TanglePatterns  :-) –  are:

You can find these all here on Amazon

    Wow–great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  • I love these Sakura Gelly Roll Moonlight pens. I have made several Zentangle inspired pieces of art with these pens on black drawing paper, and I sold one of them at an art show sponsored by the Huffines Chevrolet dealership in Plano, Texas. Everyone who sees them loves the bright colors and are fascinated by the Zentangle designs. They really stand out on a black background.

    Ahhh! Thanks for posting this. It’s really a fun project. I have neon tangles decorating my cubicle walls now. It livens the place up a bit. =)
