Hi; I want to play!

But I do have a question..to me, a mandala is a circular form, divided up into sections and have regular, repeating patterns. When I googled "zentangle mandalas" to get inspired, I saw a lot of circles filled with free-form tangles. Are there particular guidelines for what you're looking for?

arlie707
02-08-2012, 06:23 PM
Welcome Thwarmp - glad you want to play!
No guidelines really - I just put the 2 together and felt you would be inspired by the combination. I plan to put zen patterns in the spaces crated by the mandala.
