Zentangle Display Boards, Part 2

Maria followed her own instructions from yesterday's blog entry and created this:

She spray painted an old discolored and chipped frame she picked up at a yard sale for a couple dollars. She used flux to tangle its inner border. Here's a close-up.

And here's a look at its back.

A is a small finish nail that holds the foam core in the frame. B is some of the double sided carpet tape showing. C are straight pins holding down the folded over fabric.

Someone asked in yesterday's blog how Maria did her hinges on those A-frames. Here's a closer look at an A-frame laid flat.

Each side of that gap is stitched to leave enough fabric between the foam core boards so when it's folded it looks like this.

Of course, if you can work at this size (these A-frames are about 20 x 30 inches) you can work a bit larger. Here's a quick phone camera snap of Maria at our kitchen table creating a "slightly" bigger version for our upcoming Certified Zentangle Teacher seminar.

Check out the floor. That was our inspiration for florz.

Coming soon: circular zentangle tiles? That would be really cool! I wonder if this is a hint of what's to come...would you care to elaborate, Rick and Maria?

Rick and Maria, Thank you for your sharing. You two are fabulous examples of Aloha. In the spirit of the Hawaiian word kīkau, you give freely and with good will.

I think I see round tiles in our future! Very exciting!
