Zentangles/Zendoodles, are abstract drawings created with pen and ink. These drawings are created from sections of patterns, often called 'tangles', which are, in turn, built with small repetitive strokes. The wonderful thing about Zentangling is that anyone can do it. You don't have to be an artist; all you need is to be able to hold a pen. If you can write your name, then you can create intricate-looking drawings like these.

With Zentangle, you can always explore new areas of experience and insight.
There is no eraser in life and there is no eraser in Zentangle. However, in Zentangle (and in life), you discover that even if you make what seems to be a mistake, you can then build on that event as a new pattern and go in unexpected and exciting new directions.

I tried making some zentangle in Adobe photoshop.I named it "Digitangle"

This I made with the photoshop "artistic" brushes.

I edited with" warp" tool to resemble a petal

I duplicated the layers to form a necklace

I downloaded this image from "googleimages" and pasted it around her neck.

The frame and the screws are done in photoshop.
I was not satisfied with this picture and started making a 3d room to hold this picture frame
After making the 3d room I found the side walls empty so I pasted some of my hand drawn zentangle

This is my Zentangle

Again I found something was amiss.

This time I pasted the silhouettes of onlookers

I struggled for hours adding different photoshop filters for the flooring to make it look like a real auditorium

Finally I hit upon the correct
"filters"and adjustments Lo and here it is my first Digidoodling!
