A medieval half-timbered house

Back in November, when I was fortunate enough to attend the zenAgain event for CZTs, I sat beside Jenny Peruzzi. Jenny runs Acadia Laser Creations and has produced a number of zentangle project kits (Tints on Tan, Zenquility, etc.). She floated the idea of a series of zentangle-inspired houses using a standard zentangle tile and a new 3Z (triangular) tile. I liked it - houses is something I do, right? We decided to call it 'Global Village' as there will be a variety of buildings in the series.
"There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew."  
Marshall McLuhan, who coined the term 'global village'
This first offering uses Renaissance (tan) tiles. I went through a few versions of this half-timbered house before coming up with one we both liked.
The kit includes all the supplies you need to complete it, except for a few things you already have, like a pencil. You'll get two of each of the tan tiles, pens, pencils, five pages of illustrated instructions, and a custom cut house-shaped mat. Wheee!

If you're interested in this project kit it's available on Jenny's Etsy site here.

  1. What a great idea - and it is such a gentle, friendly looking house you tangled. The three steps leading up to the front door invite images of a quaint interior, wooden furniture and kitchen fire glowing. I would love to take a stroll through this global village and catch a glimpse of another time!
