Project Pack No. 07 - 12 Days of Zentangle: Day 01

Project Pack No. 07 - 12 Days of Zentangle: Day 01

Welcome to the 12 Days of Zentangle!

It has become a Zentangle tradition for us to celebrate the holidays with a series we call The Twelve Days of Zentangle. For twelve consecutive days, we will lead you through creating a fun Zentangle project. The 2019 series comes to life in Project Pack No. 07

Project Pack No. 07 has all the tangling supplies you need to tangle along with us as we explore the world of light and shadow in our tangled works. In these 12 consecutive videos, you will learn fun ways to go beyond the ink and dive into creating dimension with graphite and chalk. We will explore some familiar tools and perhaps some that are new to you. As we create together, you will discover that like in life, Zentangle too is not just black and white … there are many shades of gray in between.

It has become a part of this annual tradition for us to add some fun and whimsy to our daily newsletters during out twelve days series. This year we were delightfully inspired at a recent gathering by some of our Irish friends and decided we would write some limericks to deliver each video.



Today’s tile will use the following materials:
  • 4 gray Bijou Tiles
  • Pigma Micron 01 - Blue
  • Pigma Micron PN - Blue Black
  • Gellyroll - Gold
  • Gellyroll 10 - White
  • Graphite Pencil
  • General’s White Charcoal Pencil
  • General’s Pastel Chalk Pencil - Light Blue
  • Tortillions
  • Piece of scrap paper
So begins our tangling tradition
Shades of gray and blues that glisten
Gather friends with cheer.
No partridges here.
Sit back, enjoy, this tangled mission.



  • WOW! I treated myself to my first Project Pack (#7) and am enjoying learning to use the new (to me) tools included: Gray and black zentangle paper, Gelly roll pens, and blue General pastel chalk pencil. I am grateful for your wonderfully clear videos as well as the superb quality of the supplies provided. Thank your kindness, love, and compassion, and for the gift of Zentangle.

  • I’m late to the game but so excited to be participating in this tradition. I just did the first one and love how something so simple comes to play.

    KvanART on

  • Wow! This first project came out of my pens so easily and the final product is stunning! I have people at my office and on social media going nuts over it! I have mounted my Bijou tiles on an Apprentice tile from a prior PP so I can frame it. It is definitely worth a place on the wall!

  • Maria, I am amazed at the simplicity, yet beautiful elegance you always create with your magical hands. Once again, I am blown away by your wonderful design. Love the new gray tiles and how you combine the blues and gold with the gray. Thank you for this fun video.

  • He comenzado los 12 días de Zentangle y disfruto muchísimo la belleza que se observa al final.
    Armé mis propios Bijou con papel de 190 g. porque no tengo los materiales del Proyecto #7, pero usé mis útiles y resultó una hermosa experiencia!!
    Saludos cordiales!!!

    Nancy Wilcox on

  • I have been looking forward to your 12 Days of Zentangle! What joy to begin the holidays with special tangling!

    Linda JF on

  • This session was such a nice surprise. I was anxious to see how it all fit together and I love the final mosaic’s. The 12 days of Zentangle are my favorite!

    Terri Young, CZT 16 on

  • I am looking forward to do the Twelve days of Zentangle. Anne was happy to see the blue color (her favorite). Anne was thinking that by Christmas I would have done every tangle (PPOno6, Tangle with the Reticula and Fragments book. the Journal (shades) and finish my first Pre-strung journal). I told her that I can tangle for years. Everytime that I am writing to you I am so thankful to have discover Zentangle and all of you great people. Nathalie from Québec City.

    Nathalie Paré on

  • You have such an incredible imagination and you stretch mine so much! What I find delightful and uplifting is that, while I am viewing your video and tangling along, so many other people are doing the same thing, experiencing as I am, and creating such magic. Thank you.

    Linda Muir on

  • So thankful to be participating in real time

    Charlene on

  • Thank you for this idea. I am preparing a gift for a team of 6 persons and I was looking for a idea to have something common and something special for each one. l’ll use this idea for 6 tiles.

  • Lovely tile mosaic! The blue and copper elements are awesome. btw, is there something to keep the charcoal from wearing off? Or, over time, just reapply more carcoal? Looking forward to d2

    Carol Lee Parry on

  • Oh My Goodness, this is just so beautiful. I can’t wait to show this to my young grandchildren. I think they would love to try this. So well done, once again ♥

    Yvonne C Dunmore on

  • What fun! I’ve been looking forward to joining in with the annual 12 Days spectacle! And I’m especially excited that grey tiles are a feature as I’m in a grey tangling phase at the moment to match with the season (UK winters tend to feature lots of rain)!

    Jem Miller on

  • That little bit of DivaDance should be called a Jingle😉🎄
