Quite a few readers have commented that they don't know how to get started. Your best bet is to find a Certified Zentangle Teacher and take a class. It will be money well spent. If that is not an option, today I have prepared some lessons for my readers.
Get out a fine point marker, some paper and a pencil. Use the pencil to lightly draw a 3 inch square (free hand is good) on the paper. Start with the first lesson, work through all four, and then lesson 5 you put them together. YOu can use small pieces of paper or use a larger one and draw several squares (referred to as tiles) on it and your lessons will be all in one place. Then take a photo and post it on your blog, and then come back here and add the link to that post to Mr. Linky. or if you don't have a blog, email me a photo of your artwork from lesson 5 and I'll post it next week.

** note- I have shown broken down the tangle to individual steps. The red lines are what is added at each step. You will only draw one square and do all the steps in that square. Yours will look like the final block in each lesson.
|Lesson 1 - Static ( I added some shading in the final block to make it look more 3D)|
|Lesson 2 Knightsbridge|
|Lesson 3 Keeko|
|Lesson 4 Corn Rows|
|Lesson 5 Putting it together|
Next week's challenge is still keeping the Olympics in mind, use tangles with circles.
Do you have a post to share, add your name and link to Mr. Linky. i'll be sure to drop by for a visit and will leave a comment.
