Phew…how stressful the last year was!!
This pandemic, you know which; “Jiska naam nahi lia ja sakta/ We do not speak its name” (The Harry Potter fans will know 😉) as I have decided to think the least about it and not to utter that word once, negative chizo ko importance nahi dete 😛
A Heads-up to you before you read the content below: This post is for the people like me, who love zentangle mandala designs and get excited by the doodle art pen and doodle art materials 🙂
So, this period has tested our patience for quite some time now, made us take a good long roller coaster ride of mood swings and mental health. We developed & practiced life skills, developed new hobbies, or took the existing hobbies to a new level. A pleasant surprise was so many of you, this Ganesh Chaturthi, decided to mold their very own beautiful and cute Ganesh murti.
Everyone should have and practice at least one hobby, something which relaxes you, soothes and calms your mind, brings you at peace. Be it music, plantation, cooking, baking, craft, reading, playing instruments, and it’s endless.
Me being an absolute art lover, I want to suggest to you – Mandala and Zentagle Art and the best doodle art pen to make them.
Mandala is an arrangement of symbols/patterns is the circular discoid shape. Draw any shapes, patterns within concentric circles to create a mandala.
This is more of free-flowing art where you can use dots, lines, curves, or any shape you like. Just repetition of beautiful strokes, the outcome has to be a beautiful piece of art.
Both of these art forms are:
- Very meditative and therapeutic
- Improves concentration and focus
- Builds patience
- Calms relaxes body and mind
- Eases stress and worries
- Develops creativity
These art forms can be used to make wall frames, bookmarks, postcards, coasters, book covers, gift wrapping sheets. You can also paint our walls once you are confident about your art 😊
For Mandala, you will need a doodle art pen, blank paper (white or black, you may choose other colors as well), protractor, pencil, compass, eraser, scale.
For Zentangle, grab a doodle art pen and paper (with grids, dots, or blank) and you are good to go. Pencils, erasers, and other geometrical instruments may be required as per the designs you wish to draw.
See to it that the pens have good color pay-off, glides smoothly, ink is waterproof, smudge-proof and doesn’t blot.
The papers should be thick enough to prevent imprint on the opposite side and smooth enough for you to draw effortlessly.
To know this art was a self-learning process. Buy black fine liner pens of different nib sizes and start practicing. Once you start understanding the nibs and how they can be used to create different strokes, you can buy the colored pens to take one step ahead.
The Sakura Gelly roll pens are for drawing on black papers.
I hope you indulge in the beauty of these Mandala designs and Zentangle designs art form <3
