Product Description

Review

When I first saw the book and the pictures, I immediately thought of quilting. I am a quilter and many of these patterns (bales & botto) match patterns in quilt tops or blocks (Pumpkin seeds & Drunkards path) and in the quilting that joins the sandwich of the quilt. Bellaposa is very much like a quilting feather pattern. The main difference between Zentangles and quilting would be the small detail lines that only a prize winning (read insane) quilter will sew into a quilt due to the time it would take. The author does mention quilting as a source of inspiration for her "Ballenchain" taken from the "Wedding Ring" block/pattern. The author makes an assumption that if you're reading this book, you already know the basic Zentangles, which I didn't. She does cover some of the basics but also uses terminology for beginning designs that I haven't seen to know what she was talking about. There are oodles of references to the doodles (Zentangles) in previous publications. I do like many of her names for her Zentangles - Ballenchain (Ball and chain based on the wedding ring - bad marriage experience?) and Pingline (penguins in a line). The reading is easy and light. The author's style is fun and whimsy. She covers more in this book that I first realize. Beyond drawing fun patterns, she discusses ... - shading - finding and copying new designs - ways to track your designs - journaling - ways to develop new ideas for patterns - how to use drawing to clear your thoughts and track your to do's - how to transfer your Zentagles onto other surfaces with useful tips - printing your design multiple times - using alternate materials - drawing on rocks instead of paper Extra items in the book that I appreciated is an index to find an example of that design and even more, explicitly mentioning what product or tool she used to achieve the shown Zentangle with URLs to the products. Very helpful if I wanted to achieve the same look. I'd recommend the book to long-arm quilters and doodlers who want to up their game.

I bought this after being impressed by the author's previous book "Totally Tangled"; "Yoga for your Brain" is much more of a book of creative ideas related to zentangle inspired art.

I feel inspired by this book, but it certainly isn't for those starting out and wanting to know the basics of zentangle. Although it does present the reader with many tangle patterns, its main purpose is to inspire the creation of tangles and using them in interesting ways, such as decorating stones.

Highly recommended for those who have learned a few basic patterns and are maybe wondering what the point is of spending time drawing them. This book inspired me to taken zentangling a step further into the creation of works of art and even useful things such as the decoration of my zentangling supplies box.

I really love this book. The way it is designed, the neat, easy to follow instructions on tangles, all of it. One slight min is the absence of information on what's behind tangling and the actual meaning of Zentangle. But then there's the reference to the all known website. So you can check it out yourself if you're interrested. On the whole a great book to have and be inspired by.

I love Sandy's work, her patterns are inspirational and her instructions are so clear. There's always a pattern to be found and she gives you the confidence to look at the world in a different way.

I bought this because is was a 'Design Originals' book and know that they are usually very good.
I am very pleased with it as it gives you excellent instructions for starting to finishing many different named zentangle patterns.
Also how to draw many different variations of a same pattern, which is good advise for embellishing our own drawings by using our imagination. Thank you Sandy Steen Bartholomew.

Get your old grey matter in trim. Fun to do anywhere. Take a small notebook on holiday and you can fill your spare time, waiting for buses or trains just doodling. Helps you switch off from problems and immerse yourself in a bit of artistic therapy.
