"On the Eleventh Day of Zentangle . . ."
On the eleventh stroke of Zentangle
R and M dreamed up,
Tiny white and black triangles
As we look back over our Zentangle timeline, certain tangles make a mark in our history. When we introduced the tangle tripoli we also introduced a magical concept, even though we didn't appreciate it at the time.
This three-sided tangle was more than a pattern. It was also a platform for other tangles. Its eye-catching characteristics romanced us with the combinations of geometry, nature and movement. And its simplicity teased our eyes with complex beauty. That tangle was one of the inspirations for our Reticula and Fragment concept. It was also an inspiration for our 3Z tile.
In November of 2016, we added an equilateral triangular tile to the Zentangle collection. You can arrange this new shape in beautiful hexagonal mosaics or combine it with square tiles for exciting new mosaic arrangements.
The white and black 3Z tiles measure 3.5 (89mm) on a side and are cut from the same 100% mould made paper as their square counterparts.
We offer two fun projects for you today in honor of this Eleventh Day and the white and black 3Z tiles.
