I call it "doodling"

Is there anyone besides me that thinks calling your doodling "Zentangles" is more than a little bit pretentious? I've been doing drawings like this since I was in middle school. Back then, and still today, I just call it doodling.

I had done a few half-page doodles with whatever pen or pencil I could find to hand while I was watching TV. I don't like sitting around without having my hands busy.

My daughter, Lisa, liked them so much she scanned them so she could color them. It was her way of relaxing at college. Then she gave me a sketchbook so I could do more!

Find the feathered "K"

String of Pearls

This is one I did when I was practicing my free-motion quilting. Read about it here.

Do you see the bugs and the apple pie?  The pie started out as a simple basket weave, but when I put the circle border around it, all I could see was a pie!  By the way, there's no bugs in the pie!


There's just something about finding a good pen that glides across the paper; or a pencil that writes so smoothly...


...It makes me want to keep on drawing.

Lisa picked up some colored pens for me too. :-) 

There's happy lobsters, or maybe they are crabs, in this one.

If you'd like to color them you can download full-sized images from my Picasa album, Doodles by Kathy.

Here's an ant bound for the theater!

I hope you enjoy them!  Let me know what you think in the comments below, and show me what you've colored!

Happy coloring!
