Fifth Day of Zentangle 2017

"On the Fifth Day of Zentangle . . ."

On the fifth stroke of Zentangle
R and M circled back, 
to striking black Zendalas

The addition of the Zendala tile was huge hit. The many options of this beautiful surface whether blank or pre-strung, were an instant favorite among tanglers. 

It did not take to long for the requests to come pouring in, "What about black Zendalas?" So in May of 2013, we released the black Zendala in both blank and pre-strung. This tile is cut using the same die as our original Zendala and is made from the same paper as our 3.5 inch black tiles. 

And today in honor of our fifth day in our 12 days series, we offer you a lesson that combines black and white Zendala tiles.

  • It is such a pleasure to watch your videos. You all do such great demos. I really enjoy watching Rick and Maria working together, you are such a team. Love for each other and zentangle just radiates out and fills the listener.

    Thank you.

  • I’m taking bits from each day’s lesson and playing with them. Today I tangled a piece using the Mooka and fills and was surprised at how ornate and Mariaesque it came out. Thanks for pushing us so gently and respectfully in new directions!

  • Such a different look than I was expecting from the original cutout and paste prep! The end results so Lacy and fun. Loved the multiple examples.

    Tamra B on

  • I love Mooka, but it seems that Mooka does not love me back – except for kissing Mooka! My kissing Mooka always come out beautifully. My husband says they are trying to tell me something and that I should pay attention ?. He is such a clever man!

    Tharina Etsebeth on

  • I love this effect! I was dreaming about combining it with the paper cutting technique of Scherenschnitte.
    Oh my goodness!
    Too much fun! :)

    patsy monk on

  • The “kissing mooka” technique is feeling like a real game-changer for me. I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying your videos. Thank you, so much for doing this!
