New Zentangle book reviews now available

3 latest Zentangle Books now available!Wanted to let you all know that I’ve posted my reviews of the four recently-released Design Originals books so you can find out what’s in each one.

Learn all about creating mandalas, unique jewelry, gorgeous patterning – there’s a whole lot of Zentangle®-related inspiration to grow your creativity in these books. And 100 new tangles too!

The first three reviews are located on the BOOK REVIEWS tab at the top of the page. The Zenspirations review is “filed” under TIPS & TOOLS > RELATED BOOKS since it isn’t strictly about Zentangle®, but I know you’ll love it as much as her patterning techniques videos.

Here are the direct links:

  1. Zen Mandalas, by CZT® Suzanne McNeill with contributions from CZTs Margaret Bremner and Carole Ohl, contains 60 new tangle patterns
  2. Zentangle 5,  by CZT® Suzanne McNeill with jewelry projects from several CZTs and artists, contains 40 new tangle patterns
  3. Zentangle for Kidz!, cartoon book written and illustrated by CZT® Sandy Steen Bartholomew
  4. Zenspirations – Letters & Patterning, by professional calligrapher Joanne Fink

When you get your copies I invite you to visit the book review pages again and share what you particularly enjoy about them. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to try my hand at a mandala  or two … have a wonder-filled day!
