One of our favorite parts of a Zentangle class is when the mosaic comes together. The creation of this bigger piece of art from all the unique compositions will never cease to dazzle.
Usually everyone has followed a similar set of instructions, but there is such beauty and inspiration in the differences. It is delightful to narrowly focus on each individual tile and notice the different styles and directions the tanglers went. But, when you step back and change your focus, and absorb the art piece created as a whole, there is that “wow” moment. There is even greater beauty when they are combined. It becomes this woven tapestry of artistry.
At the end of May, we closed out the Bijou's Be Well Bundle series. As we look back on this series, Bijou and all of us at Zentangle HQ would like to emphasize the first and last step of the Zentangle Method, a moment of gratitude and appreciation.
To all of you that participated, we invite you to take a moment and appreciate your tiles. Appreciate your unique creation, this little piece of art that only you could create in the way you did. Appreciate yourself for taking the time, for taking a few moments to slow down, breathe, and create.
And then we invite you to take a step back and appreciate that you are part of this worldwide mosaic of tanglers who all chose to add beauty to this beautiful world. From Macau to Madrid, Moscow to Mumbai, Brisbane to Berlin, Bengaluru to Buenos Aires, Phoenix to Paris, Toronto to Tucson, the list could go on. At moments you were tangling along with a world full of artists.
Wow, that is one amazing Mosaic!
If you have not already, we invite you to watch the series wrap up video with Rick, Maria and Molly and appreciate the different mosaics we created.
You can check our the worldwide mosaic on the Zentangle Mosaic app by searching #BeWell2023.
But wait.. there is more! If you love math as much as Rick, we invite you to check out his blog, How Many Mosaics?
With our deepest appreciation and gratitude.
Be well, be you,
Bijou and all of us at Zentangle HQ
