I didn't start out to be a quilter. Although I've always loved anything to do with fabric and sewing machines---my background is really art.
I haven't painted or did a watercolor for ages though. However, I still love to "doodle". So, when I read this blog about "Zentangles" ---I thought wow! I'm a Zentangler, and I didn't even know it. There is a name for what I do? Here are my most recent "zentangles" (I feel so official!)
I use a Crisco jar lid and draw around it to make the circles. The shape is not important though. Just whatever paper you have works. I like the circles though. Then I make some lines within the circles. They can be curvy or straight, and start doodling. I use a Zig millennium black ink pen to draw. It's fun, and relaxing and could be incorporated into quilting.
