Welcome to day Five of our 2017 Twelve Days of Zentangle Series.

Today's project celebrates our introduction of Black Zendala tiles.


"On the Fifth Day of Zentangle . . ."

The addition of the Zendala tile was huge hit. The many options of this beautiful surface whether blank or pre-strung, were an instant favorite among tanglers. 

It did not take to long for the requests to come pouring in, "What about black Zendalas?" So in May of 2013, we released the black Zendala in both blank and pre-strung. This tile is cut using the same die as our original Zendala and is made from the same paper as our 3.5 inch black tiles. 

And today in honor of our fifth day in our 12 days series, we offer you a lesson that combines black and white Zendala tiles.

Zentangle Art Supports "Serious Request" in Europe

Marieke Sanchez is a CZT and works for Royal Talens/Bruynzeel-Sakura in Apeldoorn in The Netherlands.

She is also an awesome tangler.  Here is one of four holiday cards Marieke tangled: 

The set includes two cards of each for a total of eight cards plus envelopes. Each card is about 6 inches (155 mm) square. It is folded and blank inside.

This year the Serious Request is coming to Apeldoorn and will be broadcasting from the 18-24th of December to raise as much money as possible for the International Red Cross. Royal Talens/Bruynzeel-Sakura is a supporter of this effort.

Marieke is selling these cards for 9,95€ at this page and 100% of sales will go to Serious Request. We are happy to share this opportunity with the Zentangle community!
