Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Teaches readers how to create beautiful Zentangle-inspired patterns, designs, letters and numbers for your craft projects. Perfect for your scrapbooking, and paper crafts.

'Zenspirations' by Joanne Fink is not technically a Zentangle book. But it is clearly inspired by Zentangle as she mentions in the beginning of the book. Her artwork and lettering use drawing techniques inspired by various tangles. She also adds color using a variety of Sakura products.

    Beautiful book...but a bit disappointing

    I've been a fan of Joanne Fink for a while...love watching her YouTube videos for Sakura. She is literally the "Queen of Zentangles," however; when I purchased this book I was a bit disappointed. Yes the book is beautifully illustrated but the "how-to's" were sparse. If you love whimsical images and letters then this book is perfect.
