In the last week or so there has been a bit of a discussion on Linda Farmer's blog about copyright of patterns and the use of the word Zentangle. The art and philosophy of Zentangle is the copyright of Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts who own the Trademake Zentangle and the company that trains and licences Teachers. This means that bods like me should not use the term, we can however use the patterns if incorported into our work and have a lot of fun making pen marks on paper.
Recently I have been following the blog and challenges of a charming young Mum The Diva and joining in with some of here weekly challenges.
This week we are allowed to include the colour Blue in our tangle. Usually this art form is black and white The Diva explains why but this week she has suggested we explore the colour blue suits me. Had a lovely evening scribbling away, then getting my whisper pens out and seeing how many blue ones there are and how they would look. As you can see from the binding rings this is not the 3.5" square recommended by the Zentangle people.
