The scary cat is a digi-stamp available on our digital images page. The Halloween verse and candy corn are from our Creepy Halloween rubber stamp set. I sized the digital image to about 80% of what it was originally and printed it on an ink jet printer. I find if heat-set the ink I can use Copic Markers or Marvy Le Plume alcohol markers on it without the ink running. Normally I color the image before I Zentangle. This time I colored afterward so I was able to give the zombie parts of the cat an appropriately different color. The Zentangle patterns I used were:
Knightsbridge from Zentangle for Kidz
Checkered Zag from Zentangle 5
Nails from Zentangle 5
Crown Border from Zentangle 2
BTL Joos and a spiky variation from Zentangle for Kidz
Zentangle 5 also has a pattern for candy corn so you can draw your own if you don't have a stamp.
I haven't seen the bats in any of the books but you basically draw the upper curve of the wings first draw six dots as guides beneath and connect the dots with arcs to make the wings. I add to dots on the middle two dots for feet and two pointed ears.
The Zombie wrap is a very basic tangle called Hollibaugh from Zentangle for Kidz.
What is Zentangle? My definition, in a nutshell is that it is semi-scripted doodling. You can come as you are, with lots of ideas or no ideas and still create a masterpiece that's all your own. The people who coined the term "Zentangle" suggest using it as a sort of meditation. They even certify instructors to make sure it is being taught properly. Me? I just doodle, borrow some patterns and if I find a state of Zen along the way, great. I am a totally unlicensed doodler. That's the great thing you can take it as seriously as you want. We carry these great inexpensive books about Zentangle, written by a certified Zentangle instructor if you want to know all there is to know about Zentangle. They also have great patterns!
