The elves got together today to discuss the process, to beautify. It seems that to them, it would be first and foremost on their minds the second they pick up their pen/pencil. Of course, Nomi chimed in and said “there are many other considerations such as: to make it interesting, memorable or even distinct. But, to him, to make his Zentangle art beautiful is his constant aim.” Marasu said in her quiet voice, that she felt Rick had a way of always making his tile beautiful, even though his thoughts at this time we’re perhaps to teach a class where both seasoned tanglers and those who are new to this art form could feel their time gloriously melt away.

Welcome to the Zentangle Project Pack No. 16 and the eighth day of the 12 Days of Zentangle!
This Zentangle series offers us a moment to pause and reflect on the past year. 2021, like all years, has proven to be a time of growth. As each one of us continued with our journeys we persevered with strength, courage, resilience, and trust. In a year of rebuilding, we were given the opportunity to choose what we wanted to keep with us and what we wanted to leave behind. As the year unfolded, we hope you were able to lean on your Zentangle practice and focus on the beautiful things that came through. Together, in this series, we will in-crease our skills while navigating this part of our journey one stroke at a time. In this year-end series, we will be looking closely between the layers and folds of our Zentangle practice. As we score some new tools for our tangling toolbox, we will dig into some creative, tangled ways to celebrate and illuminate your Zentangle art.
We will be working with the materials in the Zentangle Project Pack No. 16, but we encourage you to follow along with whatever materials that you have.
Let Alfie know your thoughts and each day we will pick a commenter at random to receive a Zentangle Surprise!
The winner from Day 07 is Nancy Wilcox ! Please send your snail mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I enjoyed the simplicity of revisiting old friends (tangles!) and ending up with a beautiful piece!

Bijou tiles are a great size for this project. So fun !
What a fun shape! Not what I was expecting. And I am going to dip mine in glitter. Thanks for the suggestion!

This project is can be made simple or elegant just by the chosen tangles that are used. The small size makes it a good tree ornament. ❤️

I love those bijou tiles. Luckily for me I know the patterns very well, because I learned them from the book Primer1. Love those ornaments.
