Each page has a box close to the size of an actual zentangle tile with basic shapes or lines to fill in with your own zentangle patterns. It's kind of like the random lines you would draw at first to create areas for filling with different patterns. Yes it can appear childlike at first glance but when you fill it completely with complex designs it takes a more adult look in complexity.
Keep in mind this is not an adult coloring book. Nor is this a pattern idea book (there are books and apps for that). This is a tile a day idea book. If you haven't done zentangles before, look it up. I know this book doesn't use the official zentangle name (which is trademarked) but that's the inspiration behind this book.
I feel the poor star ratings would be vastly reduced if this was clearly understood prior to purchase.
That being said, I strongly dislike the paper quality used for this book. I would rather use sturdy official tiles to draw the patterns from the book directly on the tiles. I also believe this book should have been spiral bound to better preserve the art inside. If that is also your preference, buy the kindle edition as templates to have with you where ever you go whenever the mood strikes you. Pair that with your favorite pattern reference(s) and you're good to go. You might even be surprised by the results!
Thank you Meera, I am not one to meditate in silence, but through the use of this book, I am able to get the sort of quiet me time that I need, on a daily basis.
