Project Pack No. 07 - 12 Days of Zentangle: Day 11

Project Pack No. 07 - 12 Days of Zentangle: Day 11

Welcome to the eleventh day of Project Pack No. 07.

For today's tangle inspiration, Alfie brought out this beautiful temari ball made by a dear friend and Japanese CZT.

So gather your drawing tools and four gray Zentangle Bijou tiles and we'll get started.

If you're facing a puzzle that blocks,
And are seeking a key that unlocks;
As straight lines are drawn,
Gentle curves are born
From your pen as you draw paradox.

Please leave your comments below. Each day we will pick commenter at random to send a Zentangle surprise to!

Yesterday's winner is Carol Lee Parry ! Please send your snail mail address to!



  • Years ago, Paradox was my very first tangle. It was so thrilling to watch it grow on the paper and that triggered my love of Zentangle. It’s still a great favourite of mine that I also enjoy using as a reticula.

    I have taught a few classes of teenagers (vocational school) this tangle. Their amazement once they realize how simple it actually is to create such an awesome piece of art is very rewarding.

    Thanks so much to Rick and Maria for today’s additional inspiration. Love the weighing and shading! I think I’ll use those for a gift of a black Zentangle mosaic, 9 tiles in white ink.

  • Rick’s tangling is amazing. I am going to have to really think about this one. Not sure I can go from line to point after drawing from point to line. It is a paradox.

  • This is the first series that I have actually attempted!!! You break it down so perfectly! I especially love the teachings with the ‘puzzle pieces’, it is so neat when you complete several of the tiles that they go together beautifully! Thank you for this awesome opportunity to watch you in action!
