I discovered these tonight and I am having so much fun, it's almost criminal.

First try!


Second try!


The second one's maybe a bit too representational to be properly zen. But whatevs. I'm going to use these for the journal I'm making for my sister, because they turned out a lot cuter than I thought they would!

ETA: Third Zendala!

Those are awesome.  I would image that if you copied them they'd be a lot of fun to color in various ways!   Cheesy  I love both of them!

That's awesome! What's with all the inspiration craftster is throwing at me these days..? You don't mind me using your idea, do you? This would be so nice for the altered journal I'm starting soon!

These are awesome! I want to know how you do them too.  They seem cathartic even if I don't draw.  Grin

Crafters are the best people in the world.  Plus, it makes them environmentally friendly which I also love.  Wink

Thanks for the replies! These are so simple - I just grabbed an Ikea tealight-holder and drew round it with a pen then portioned up the image with some wavy lines (using a couple of different sizes of pigment pens, the rabbits were done with 05 and 01 size). No pre-drawing was done - you just go for it!

There's a video tute: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4Nlz4XMxcs

I think I might try some long shapes next - Zenstrips?
