Zentangles are not really drawings - they are usually more abstract art - like lines and patterns. But I know that a lot of us love to incorporate things, especially creatures into our tangles! Lilah and I have thought about how wonderful it is that Lilah Beans are actually both a tangle and the string! You usually draw lots and lots of Lilah Beans, so she is a repetitive pattern... a tangle. But you can also draw just one and then you fill her hair with more tangles... so she is a "string" too, right?
