Buoy: Non-official Zentangle/ZIA pattern

Sometimes you need a little help.

Buoy is a simple little doodle that adds zing to repetitive backgrounds such as pebbles, or KEEKO or YINCUT. It's a handy dandy lifesaver shape.


  1. how do you make your tangles official?

  2. The name and method of zentangling is copyrighted by Rick and Maria Thomas, so their tangles are the only ones that are truly 'official'. There are Certified Zentangle Teachers (CZTs), so their tangles are almost official, lol. There is a specific methodology behind zentangling, so tangles by other people may or may not really qualify as tangles.
