Ninth Day of Zentangle

"On the Ninth Day of Zentangle . . ."

On the ninth stroke of Zentangle
R and M moved on,  
Black and tan square Bijou
It was inevitable that before too long we would find room for both black and Renaissance Bijou tiles.

These adorable small tangling surfaces proved to be ideal for more than we imagined. Zentangle artists across the world were creating tiny tangled masterpieces. 

In January of 2016 we unveiled the black Bijou tile, followed by the Renaissance Bijou in September. In that same year after many requests we made all of Bijou's Bijouisms available too. 

On this ninth day, we celebrate the yin and yang of the black and Renaissance Bijou tiles.

  • These ‘bijou twins’ (same but different :o) are just amazing! They are like little bijou jewelry presents! Thank you so much for all the videos! There is so much to play with and try out and re-try. Best X-mas present ever!

  • This is such a wonderful idea. So simple, but so effective. I loved the two tiles I made today and am buzzing with ideas for more, in larger sizes too! Thank you for all the fun!

  • Fascinating seeing how the two tiles cut in a pattern then interlock to create two harlequin tiles. Less really is more with the use of few colours (is black or white really a colour??) in tangling. The tan with the rusts & browns, graphite, black & white is so sophisticated, no wonder the Renaissance artists used this combination. Just to think we walk art history……….

Love the quality of the entire package, the nicely designed Project Pack Envelopes, the delicate paper wrapped around the pens and tools. Just opening the products puts me into the mood to tangle.
