Zentangle Project Pack No. 16 - The 12 Days of Zentangle 2021 -Day 09

Zentangle Project Pack No. 16 - The 12 Days of Zentangle 2021 -Day 09

Martha and Molly showed Alfie and friends their finished tiles before watching today’s lesson. They were mesmerized and a little intimidated. “We cannot do that!” they cried. Molly and Martha agreed that it appeared challenging than some of the other days but encouraged them with gentle voices. If you take your time and go one stroke at a time, we believe that you can do it too.  

Sit back, relax, and watch this one through first. Watch how Molly and Martha encourage one another throughout the creation of this tile. See how even seemingly complex things can still be broken down into simple basic strokes, and with a little encouragement …  you can face a challenge too. 

Molly and Martha are playfully calling this fun technique Z-Through. Show us what you are creating with this technique by using the hashtag #Zthrough

Welcome to the Zentangle Project Pack No. 16 and the ninth 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.

  • I love listening to Martha and Molly. I also love the complexity of this tangle, but I think I would find this more anxiety producing than Zen-like.
