Hello everyone, you may or may not remember me....it has been a few years since I visited. I lost my way a little with art for a while and withdrew into myself a little too much. Anyway, here is something I do a lot of these days - I call it Meditatink. I collect quotes that I find inspiring and then fill the page with doodles and patterns.....

I've been using Sakura pigma micron pens various sizes and prismacolor markers along with ordinary Faber Castell connector pen markers (for kids!).

I hope you like them!

This particular journal is quite small so I often spread the pattern over a two page spread if that is the case :wink2:

Jackie, so sad to hear you lost your art. Glad to see you back doing some art. The use of quotations and doodling is a great way to express yourself artistically. :)

This is lovely -- I love the way the flowers dance around the spread. :D I can see how this would be meditative and very...helpful in all sorts of ways.

Thanks saramerry99. It can be very meditative when you get into the flow and tune out the world around you....I find it a really useful relaxation tool to quiet down my mind at the end of the day.

Not all meditatink is coloured.....sometimes I just dump my thoughts onto the page rather randomly working on a loose theme and then doodle, other times I doodle and it makes me think of something to write. Whatever arrives is what is put in the journal. Sometimes I see Zentangle patterns that I like, but not being one to follow a pattern it ends up in an organic jumble!

Those designs are so well balanced and elegant! Your current style is gorgeous. If these texts inspire you to draw that well, they're great. You're definitely tapping something with Meditatink.
