I haven't really been a fan of zentangles because I am not a doodler. I decided to sign up for this month's chunkies to give it a try. Once I understood that a zentangle is built up in layers of complexity, I appreciated the meditative process. Unfortunately, I rarely have the luxury of time to just sit and zentangle.
I can't really recall where my idea for my zentangles came from. I knew I wanted to do a circular zentangle. To add a fun element to my chunky pages, I decided to suspend a two-sided zentangle from a string allowing my design to spin.
If I had planned my layout better, I think I would have created a smaller circular zentangle. My zentangles are 3 1/4" in diameter which pushes the edges of my 4 x 4" page. You can see I had to create a half inch extension on the left side so that holes could be punched without interfering with my cut out.
I considered coloring in my zentangles but in the end, decided that I liked the simplicity of the plain black and white.
