Review by Sharla R. Hicks, Certified Zentangle teacher:

Cris and Sonya the authors of Pattern Play, A Creativity Booster have written a content driven book on Zentangle that goes beyond the step-by-step patterns of most books. (See Table of Contents below)

  • Like most Zentangle books, it cover 21 different tangles with step outs but the real gems of the book are the 126+ tangleations (variations) that accompany the patterns.
  • Each pattern teaches you how to think beyond the initial tangle and turn it into your own.
  • Going through the exercises will stimulate your creative imagination while expanding your Zentangle skills beyond formula based design.
  • The book has large easy to understand graphics, step-outs and blank Idea Starter pages that offer prompts to begin exploring tangleations. This format keeps your ideas next to the instruction that stimulated them.


Back Cover Information

The practice of Zentangle, a meditative art form, may also help you feel less stressed, increase your confidence, improve your concentration, manage pain better, sleep more soundly, and meditate more deeply. Like going to the gym, you need to exercise your creativity muscles to build them. Pattern Play will step you through 21 meditative patterns with 126+ variations and 80+ idea starters so you can refine your skills and become the artist you were meant to be. Written for beginners as well as seasoned tanglers (people who 'do Zentangle'), Pattern Play will guide you through the process of discovering and developing your own style.
