A few weeks ago, we celebrated the release Zentangle Project Pack No. 20. In this project pack, we explored blossoming tangles.
Throughout the series I saw comments in online communities and many emails in my inbox from tanglers who had taken the idea from the project pack and gone in their own direction with it. They were wondering and hoping it was “okay” that they were exploring variations rather than following along exactly.
Short answer: Yes, of course!
In the weeks of preparation for this project pack, here at Zentangle HQ, we were bouncing ideas off each other, sharing sample tiles and admiring those ideas as they came to life. Right before the series began, Molly said to me, “I can’t wait to see what everyone does with these ideas.”
Zentangle Project Packs are a special time for us because they bring together people from all over the world to tangle together. What makes them even more special is seeing the Zentangle Community take our ideas and explore them, making them their own.
It is like the Zentangle Method itself. At its core, it is dots, borders, strings and tangles. The magic happens when each and every one of you picks up a pen and puts it to paper, tangling a story that we could never have dreamed of.
During each project pack, we are blown away by the creativity of the Zentangle Community. One of our favorite parts is seeing how you make the ideas your own and we can’t thank you enough for sharing them with us. Whether you journey off the path in your own direction or follow along with us, you are doing it exactly the way you are supposed to.
If you have not had a chance to explore all of the Zentangle art created during Project Pack No. 20, we encourage you to take a look! You can download the app for free and search #PP20 and #PP20Day01 (or Day02, Day 03, etc.).
Here at Zentangle HQ, much thought, design and planning are put into the production of our Zentangle Project Packs. Zentangle Project Pack videos are available for free without the purchase of the project pack materials.
