It's fascinating to create Zentangle® art using round Zendala tiles. Whether you follow a pre-strung Zendala, make your own string, or just treat the tile like a regular blank canvas, the results are all amazing. There's something soothing and inspiring about working on the slightly larger, round tile. I love having a little more room to play while still working on a manageably sized piece.
The latest and greatest black Zendala tiles are fast becoming a new favorite of mine. Here is a tile I worked on this weekend. I used a silver pencil to create a light basic string of circles and half-circles with a high-tech tool--one of my daughter's mini Play-Doh containers. ;-) Circles are very easy to find and to create. Grab a glass, a plate, a pill bottle/lid, an old film canister, or any combination of these.
Here is my tile celebrating my mother and all of the wonderful mothers in my life. I hope you are able to celebrate the moms in your life--near, far, or in fond memory. Happy Mother's Day!
I had a great time teaching a Zendala class this weekend! The attendees did an awesome job practicing on a pre-strung tile and trying their hand at their own Zendala strings. Thanks, ladies!
