Eighth Day of Zentangle

Eighth Day of Zentangle

"On the Eighth Day of Zentangle . . ."

On the eighth stroke of Zentangle
R and M thought small,  
Tiny squares called Bijou

What a delightful year at Zentangle HQ when a quiet little snail named Bijou™ joined the Zentangle family! Bijou was and is an amazing wisdom-whisperer for the Zentangle Method . . . and he doesn't even speak. His tactful and modest way of reminding us of the little things about the method that mean so much. We have come to call these special sentiments Bijouisms. 

Learn more about Bijou and his Bijouisms here

Not only did Bijou bring us his presence and magical "aura" but he also became the inspiration for a smaller tile in the Zentangle tile collection. This tile of course would be named after our new friend. In August of 2014, we introduced Bijou and the white Bijou tile. This tiny tile measures 2" (about 5 cm) square and is die cut from white Fabriano Tiepolo.

Enjoy this fun little lesson in honor of Bijou and the Bijou tile.
