Hello all you wonderful, creative, caring, beautiful/handsome tanglers!
We recently got a very unusual email here at Zentangle Central. One of our (see above descriptions) tanglers (we will call SF), informed us that we sent her a (most remarkable) legend booklet in her Zentangle Project Pack.
Although she (or he) did not notice it right away because he (or she) assumed it was the way it came, . . . suddenly noticed, while watching the Zentangle Project Pack videos that accompanied the materials, that many of the spaces were already tangled!
In the videos, they spaces were empty, awaiting someone to fill them in with their own creations. We struggled to understand what she was saying. . . because how could one book out of all the ones we sent out be already filled in. So, we asked SF to send us images of the book. And, sure enough, there they were . . . tangles all about!
Now, mind you, everyone knows how I love a mystery. And I have given it some of my time to no avail. We have asked everyone here if they had their own books in their possession, and so accounted for any that may have slipped into the general box of legend books. This was certainly a tangler’s conundrum.
So we are asking all of you if you can solve this mystery. Leave your theories in the comments, and we will eventually give away goodies to the one who solves this mystery, and also choose some random commenters for other giveaways.
Put on your thinking cap (preferably a deerstalker), and see what sleuthing you can do. Perhaps, me thinks, do a tile or two to get the grey (a General's pencil will do nicely) matter afoot!
The Zentangle Legend Book is featured in Project Pack No. 10

I can imagine him sitting quietly while he watched and listened to them choose the best tangles to fit each space, to slowly complete each area while they savored the experience of making the repetitive movements to make the beautiful tangles. I can imagine the longing he felt while he admired and appreciated the projects as they were completed. I know he would reflect on the completed projects trusting that his friends were discovering their creative energy and were inspired to let themselves reach out of their shells to experiment and grow.
I can imagine that he could take it just so long before he gave in to his craving and hid away to complete the beautiful book in which he created, chose his tangles, slowly experimented knowing he would have no mistakes and he would be inspired to savor and enjoy the experience. But… once the book was completed and he knew it was perfect then what? Does he hide it? That wouldn’t seem right? Perhaps he enclosed the beautiful, completed book with the brand-new books so it would be discovered and given out to a person who would enjoy and savor his work.
Maybe, just maybe, that is what happened. It is at least what I imagine.

ps, I made a tile but can’t figure out how to post it on here…

One day, Bijou was secretly tangling in one of the booklets. Bijou thought he slipped it into the stack of working books the video makers were using for the Project Pack series.
He had hoped to surprise them when they opened it for a new video.
Alas, because Bijou is so small, he accidentally slipped the booklet into the wrong stack and the booklet ended up being mailed to a very lucky tangler.

Could it have been a book used in planning or making the Project Pack videos and it just got misplaced?

I love a good mystery! So (much) Fun. Another SF

I agree with Sandy. Methinks Bijou has been rather busy during his lonely nights at the warehouse! Perhaps he needs a friend. However the tangles manifested…it was (is) a sweet idea.

I think that you at HQ managed somehow to send SF the Legends booklet that was used in one of the lesson/demonstration videos. I recognize the tangles as those done (I think) by Martha in her “Spirals” video. I’m guessing that the booklet got partially used as she was preparing for the video, then it got mixed in with unused booklets and sent out from wherever you fill your Project Pack orders. Possible?
