I am so happy I have discovered Zentangle. I have a feeling this is going to be a big thing here soon. It's relaxing, stimulating, and somehow....you can feel stress melt off you, and into your picture.
When I was a kid, my mum would tell me to write down any angry/stressful/sad/worried feelings I was having. "Get them out of your head" she'd say. Then I would tear the pages out, crumple them up, and toss them in the garbage bin. It was a release somehow. Now, I can do the same thing, my sad Zentangles, look nothing like my Angry tangles, or my worried ones. Only instead of crumpling these up and throwing them away...you can hang them up, display them, because really....only you know what they mean!
