Playing with Mooka




 My friend, Sharla, recommended to our ZenFriend group to work in a bigger sketchbook to explore tangles.  So I took my 40% off coupon to Michael's and got a new sketchbook just for zentangles.  My first two pages are playing with Mooka, which is a continuous line pattern.









It amazing how just "playing around" can produce some pretty fantastic stuff if I do say so myself.  It really helps to build muscle memory so the pattern becomes easy to do.  When you don't have to think about the way to do the tangle your creativity is unleashed and allowed to run free.

That is a great idea and wonderful tangling! I really would like to borrow you telling that playing along makes sure you get it in your fingers and expand your creativity. Because I think that would help my students! And I will go and tangle more and more. Thank you for sharing. Ellen

Play is soooo important in creativity, isn't it? Just giving yourself permission to play without worrying about the outcome is essential. Great patterns.
