Hi, Alfie here!
Welcome to day four of The Twelve Days of Zentangle, 2020.
Julie joins us today to guide us in tangling a 3Z tile (or 2 or 3!). Her "joie de vivre" is obvious as she navigates around sandswirl, a tangle designed by Karry Heum.
Julie has always loved tangles with spirals, a strong symbol of the journey and change of life as it unfolds. Watch how she arranges these sandswirl spirals to one end of the 3Z tile, in a pattern that includes the absence of images as well as the images.
She has a purpose in her journey and that will magically unfold at the end of the video.
Thanks, Julie, once more for your passion and art!

Welcome to the Project Pack No. 12 and the fourth day of the 12 Days of Zentangle!
It goes without saying that 2020 will go down in history as remarkable year. This year we all experienced the unexpected, the unknown and the uncertain. There were challenges that required our patience and strength in order for us to contribute to what the world needed.
In our Zentangle practice we encourage you to embrace the unexpected, the unknown and the uncertain as a part of your creative process. We encourage you to look for opportunities and to shift your perspective.
As we bring a close to a pivotal year in history, Project Pack No. 12 will offer us a magical time of rebirth, restoration, and awakening. We are excited to begin this year’s 12 Days of Zentangle, that we are calling the 2020 Zentangle Renaissance.
Let Alfie know your thoughts and each day we will pick a commenter at random to receive a Zentangle Surprise!

I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy doing this one, but boy was I wrong. What seemed so simple became incredibly beautiful with all of the layers of color. “Believe in the process.” Love it.

Love the project surprise at the end. I like the suggestion of 3/3Zs to make a bell. Could also make it a tree. Bells or tree could be an ornament. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for Day 5!

Julie, Glad to see you are back. Enjoyed your tile today and the options for its use as an ornament, card holder, etc. The gold adds so much fun to the tiles!

The Decorative functional use for the completed tiles is interesting. Certainly creates more ways to display tiles. Embedding an letter would make it a nice personalized (ornament) gift.

I am new to zentangle and found it to be such a delightful way to spend my days in Covid isolation. I splurged and got the zentangle pack 12 for Christmas. When I received my package, I was so surprised to find all those goodies and feel it is a wonderful bargain! I could hardly wait for the classes to begin! Now, it is like opening a gift every day! I do savor each lesson and so appreciate your dedication and talents! I am still working on getting day 3…. it will take me 16 times I am sure!😂 Thank you again and Merry Christmas to you and yours!
