Another approach to Zentangle is to add tangles within a simple, easily identifiable shape.  Choose a subject with a distinctive silhouette, or use a stencil.  For this particular Zentangle, I hand drew a Scottie dog (you can’t get much more distinctive than that), then pencilled in the ‘threads’ which create the different sections, then using my black pen, added a pattern unique to each section.

These shape Zentangles look particularl effective mounted onto a coloured greeting card. Think of the holidays that are coming up – you could tangle within hearts, Easter eggs, etc – the only limit is your imagination.
