Every month I do a project with my Zentangle Club. After reading about prayer flags and the wonderful concept of the prayer being carried out into the universe by the wind -- we had to make them!!! Attached are photos of "prayer flags" I made.
We made these small flags out of muslin that we backed with freezer paper to make the fabric stiff (you iron the sticky side of the paper to the back side of the area you want to tangle on and then just peel off when finished) and then we added all kinds of mixed media to the flag.
My group LOVED this project and we had a whole string of the flags hanging above the reception area at the Art Center where I teach and exhibit (watercolors). One lady took the project to her huge family reunion and it was a big hit there and everyone wanted to make it an annual event.
Stay happy, Deanna

Just thought you might like to see Zentangle on clay! I carve into my pot in greenware, fire glaze and fire again.
I am kind of limited to which patterns I can use but I love the results!
Like so many tanglers, I want to start by thanking you for your beautiful and soothing art form. I am dealing with a lot and I don't know what I'd do without tangling, it has saved me!!!
I wanted to share one of my most uniquely located tangles. A friend of mine asked if I would tangle his guitar. As a music teacher this made me very nervous to do to an instrument but he assured me that he was really excited about it, and I think it turned out marvelous!
I used a fine point black Sharpie for the tangles and pencil (which worked much better than expected!) for the shading.
