Project Pack .04 -- 12 Days of Zentangle - Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the 12 Days of Zentangle!


One of Alfie's favorite Zentangle steps is shading the shading with a tortillion. 

He is particularly thrilled with his new tortillion which he discovered in the laundry room. Someone left a tortillion in their pocket and it went through the wash. It's a little blunt, but it works wonders to smooth out the graphite on your tile.

Apparently, Alfie felt that what Rick created yesterday needed a bit more contrast!

On this third day of Zentangle, Maria prepares a wadical plate of festune before she ventures to tripoli to see the fabulous florz.
