How to Create Watercolor Backgrounds for Your Zentangle

Life is a long journey. You can make the most of it only when you can control the everyday pressure and stress of your life.

Let me ask you a few questions:

> Do you feel stressed after a day’s work?
> Do you not feel confident enough?
> Do you go to sleep with lots of worries in your mind?
> Do you struggle to maintain your focus?
> Have you lost the feeling of pride in yourself?

If your answer to all these questions is YES, you really need help. But you don’t need to go to a therapist when the solution is right at your table. Have you ever heard of the art of Zentangle?

What is Zentangle?

Zentangling is a new drawing concept, which is gaining immense popularity all across the globe. Developed by Rick and Maria from Massachusetts, Zentangle is a therapeutic art form. If you draw Zentangle patterns on a daily basis, you’ll notice a huge, positive change in your everyday life.

Zentangle is the art of drawing beautiful, repetitive patterns that will relax your mind and help you be at peace with the world.

Different Zentangle Patterns

There is no limit to how many amazing patterns can be created the Zentangle way. First of all, you create a square shape, a rectangular shape or a circular shape on a white sheet of paper. Second, you divide the shape into multiple smaller sections. Finally, you start filling each section with repetitive lines.

So, every Zentangle pattern is created one line at a time.

There are some official Zentangle patterns that you can easily check out on the web by watching video tutorials. Popular official patterns include Crease, Narwal, Arukas, Munchin etc.

Once you are aware of the basics of Zentangle, you can create your own unique patterns and treasure them in the form of beautiful memories. Or, you can also gift these designs to your near and dear ones.
