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

Today's project celebrates our introduction of Zendala tiles.


"On the Third Day of Zentangle . . ."

On the third stroke of Zentangle
R and M played 'round, 
With circles, white and cheerful

As more people around the world practiced the Zentangle Method, we noticed a marriage between the form of traditional Mandala art and Zentangle patterns.

This lovely combination inspired us to investigate further. A circular canvas is a perfect fit for the Zentangle concept of no up or down. It also nurtures the practice of turning your tile as you work. 

We studied traditional circular patterns and developed ways to incorporate them in a Zentangle way. After much fun exploration, we made a series of pre-strung Zendala tiles with printed templates that looked like a pencil drawn string to offer suggestions, but not demands. 

In early 2011, we made our first round Zentangle tile with our white Fabriano Tiepolo paper with it's familiar die-cut edge. We made them available in  blank and pre-strung models.

Play along with us on this third day of Zentangle as we celebrate the birth of the white Zendala tile.
