First tiles

Today I want to share a few people's first ever Zentangle tiles.

Veronica was in one of my classes this summer.
She wasn't quite finished when I took the group
mosaic photo, so I took one of her tile alone. Lovely
shading around the loop and the other side of Tidings.
Tangles: Gingham, Meer, 'Nzeppel, Strircles, Tidings
Fiona lives in another city and ordered a kit. Fiona e-mailed
soon after saying, "I'm in love!" She created this tile
entirely from the DVD and directions in the kit.
Tangles: Flux, Keeko, Msst, Pokeroot, Shattuck and...
Bales and Florz combined!
How cool is that?
There are a few things I find interesting about Gertrude's tile.
There's the 3D effect with Knightsbridge and Static. Mostly I love
what she did with Hollibaugh: divided the section into three
subsections. Perhaps she got creative with a too-thick band
of Hollibaugh? In any case, wonderful!

And, while we're on the subject of 'firsts', I just received the first entry for the draw I'm having for my blog's first anniversary! Check out my anniversary post if you want to join in.


  1. Very nice - better than my first ever... I have a shaky hand, so no smooth lines anywhere.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Absolutely Terrie! It's the size, black/white, and no 'things' that are important. I look forward to seeing what you send!
