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.

  • I love watching all of you tangle every day. Today I especially enjoyed Festune and the highlights of white charcoal always adds some oooh-la-la! to any tangle :)
    I am patiently waiting for my PP04 (which I will probably only get towards the end of January!) but in the meantime I am tangling along on some square tiles and having just as much fun.
    Thank you for all the tips on the tangles and snippets about how they were named – this just adds to the fun!

  • I love the meta-shapes from Tripoly. You both are wonderful!

  • What I’d like for Christmas is either a) Your Zentangle books to be available in the UK or b) available as downloads!

  • I’m keeping up so far. It’s fun to just follow along and not have to decide what tangle to use. Can’t wait to see the finished spinner.

  • I have been Zentangling for a few years now, but haven’t ordered any supplies from you directly until now. I think this spinner looks VERY fun and can’t wait to get mine and get started working on it. Your fun emails and totally hilarious posts about Alfie have brightened my day. Your enthusiasm for everything Zentangle makes reading each email a joy! Thank you.

  • Thanks for the tips on Tripoli, it’s always been challenging for me. Great addition of the white pencil. I’m enjoying the series.
