What you'll need:
Paper, Pencil, black permanent markers, coloring markers (pencils, markers, crayons, etc.)
1. The Zentangle process starts out pretty easy. About a half an inch away from the edge your paper, draw a rectangle. And, then break up your paper into sections with lines. Erase and re-do and until you're satisfied.
You can really use any kind of paper - in your journal, notebook, blank sheets. I had some left over paper from a design class, so I'm using Artagain bristol paper - a nice heavyweight paper.
There is plenty of pattern inspiration all over the web, but since this is HP inspired, I drummed up a little list to get our magical, creative juices flowing:
broomsticks, owls, cats, Basilisk fangs, Sorcerer's Stone, lightning bolts, socks, the Horcruxes, books, deers or your own patronus, Deathly Hallows symbol, Hogwarts Portraits, wand fights, the Tri-Wizard Tournaments, rubber ducks, Undesirable No. 1, the Hogwarts flag patterns, Platform 9 3/4, 'Maurader's Map', the Golden Snitch, Luna Lovegood glasses, potions, spells, wands, 'Always', 'I Solemnly Swear', 'Until the End'.
3. If you did what I did - filled in the paper first with pencil - next we take permanent markers and filled in all the outlines. If not, skip this step and go to #4.
4. To color in, or not to color in: that is the question and is completely up to you. Most zentanglers leave theirs black and white, but many more also color it in
5. Our finished result: my Harry Potter Zentangle®.
