Things are a buzz here at Zentangle HQ. This summer, we have some exciting new things to share with you and we can’t wait!
As we look forward with excitement, we decided to also take a walk down memory lane to appreciate how far Zentangle has come and how it has grown over the years. For the next few weeks, we are going to be going Back to Basics as we pay homage to our Zentangle RootZ.
What better place to start than with the Zentangle Blog.
In 2017, we launched a new Zentangle.com and we moved our blog to our website. But, for 10 years before that, we ran a Zentangle Blog on blogspot. We have always kept that blog up because there is a treasure trove of Zentangle treats, tiles, discussions, and more!
Whether you are new to the Zentangle Method or have been with us since the beginning, we invite you to explore the vintage Zentangle Blog. The fun tidbits of information are not just in the post but in the comments as well!
You can learn why the Zentangle Tiles have a deckled edge in the comments of this post. Or, the inspiration behind the tangle floorz here.
See Maria’s morning tangles here and a story about teaching their grandsons 2nd grade class (that same grandson graduates high school this week!).
One post that caught my attention was this one about the Zentangle DVD. Many moons ago we used a mini DVD, which at the time was fun, new technology. As technology changed, we then switched to a full size DVD (read more here).
Today, DVDs are pretty much obsolete. When we retired the current version of the Original Zentangle Kit earlier this year, we retired the DVD along with it, but, the lessons are available on our YouTube channel for all to enjoy.
It is nice to see that as time has passed, technology has changed and we have evolved, but the 8 Steps of the Zentangle Method have remained the same. We invite you all to go back to basics and enjoy the lessons from our Original Zentangle Kit.
Share your completed tile on the Zentangle Mosaic App with the hashtag #BackToBasics2021 and tell us in the comments below how and when you found the Zentangle Method and we will back a commenter at random to send a Zentangle surprise to!
And, what is next for the Zentangle Kit?
