Been doodling when I should be working!

I can't stand the cold weather and this past week's cold storm and actual snow at the beach has made me lazier than ever. I don't want to work, or cook or do anything I normally do, but boredom and I are not a good combination.
I have recently found zentangling and zendoodling and have become crazy about it. I never thought I could draw anything, but these little pieces don't have to look realistic and you just incorporate any "mistake" you make into the design, so it is right up my alley.


Laura, over at "I am the Diva" posted a weekly challenge, so last night even though I was a couple of days late, I got my pens and paper ready and attempted the challenge. I haven't ever responded to a doodle challenge, so you can't, laugh. PROMISE ? Ok, here they are, I made 2.....




If you haven't tried zentangline check this site out. you will love it. This is also a great place to find patterns.

Enjoy, Hope you don't get hooked on doodling like I did.

That is cool! You could do that while at a boring meeting.

I prefer the second one; it's more real Zentangle without the faces. And it seems more 'centered'.

Good stuff!

The second one makes me think of jellyfish opening up to show what's inside. Very cool!

Thanks a lot for just one more thing to make me wonder where the time went! Never heard of it until I read your blog and then...hmmm, check out the link...ooohh, looks kind of interesting...google it...watch three videos, read all sorts of stuff, start thinking about what kind of patterns I'd make...
Darn it all, I just don't have time! Quit blogging about interesting things!
