In case you missed it ...

Zentangle is "not just the latest buzzword for ‘that thing I was already doing years ago in the margins of notebooks’."

So if that's what you've been thinking, you don't know Zentangle yet.

For enlightenment on this subject please read CZT Sandy Hunter's eloquent article On Understanding Zentangle.

    That is amazing. I tell people Zentangle it is all over the world but I never realised just how many and in so many places. I have just had our 8 year old gran daughter staying and we always do a tangle when we are together. I showed her a couple of years ago and she loves it and does such tiny tangled patterns which she has made up herself.
