What is Tangle 365?
Tangle 365 engages the Zentangle Method which is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns... these patterns are called ... tangles.
Tangles are created with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs on small pieces of paper called "tiles".
Zentangle art is non-representational and unplanned so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. There is no up or down. In fact, you can most easily create Zentangle art by rotating your tile as you tangle -- always keeping your hand in a relaxed position. You don't need to know what a tangle is going to look like to draw it. You just need to know the steps. The result is a delightful surprise.
