If you’ve been around my cookie blog, you probably know that I am a huge fan of the Zentangle method of drawing. The amount of inspiration available in Instagram, Pinterest, and the number of tutorials in youtube is quite amazing, so I advise you to grab a cup of tea and browse around. Not too long ago I found this youtube channel and fell in love with it. Every day, Kelli demonstrates one “tile” (Zentangle drawings are called tiles as they are usually made in 2 inch or larger square sheets of paper) that takes no longer than 15 minutes to make. Keep in mind that when doing it on paper, you can add a lot of shading and details, when I do it in cookies it is simpler and therefore faster. But equally relaxing and rewarding. I share with you today just a few examples using her tutorials, and some departures I did on my own. All cookies must be flooded and fully set, and then you need a fine tip black pen. I often use PME pearl spray to give the cookie a final shine, but that is not mandatory.
This first cookie was made following this tutorial.…
Then I made a second one using only two zentangle motifs from the first one…
Next, one of my favorites, following this TULIP tutorial from Kelli.
It became one of my favorite designs!
The top right is a pattern called TAXI, and you can see her demonstrating it here…..
I love how changing the background color has a huge impact on the design, and even if you mess up something, it always ends up ok in the end. Or so I believe…
