'Tis (almost) the season . . .

Well, it's always a good season, as that song goes, "to be jolly." And this is also a good season to tell you about some new goodies that we've been holding back on until our new website went online.

We (along with Snowman and assorted penguins) are happy to introduce a compilation CD of Native American style flute music, called Sounds.

 
This CD includes all the songs on our instructional DVD in our Zentangle Kit plus enough more songs to make it about an hour long.

 
Rick used to make Native American style flutes. This CD is Rick playing flutes that he made. Sounds is a great accompaniment for creating Zentangle art and it's a great gift.

In case you missed it in our recent newsletter, we have also introduced black Zentangle square tiles and ATC sized Zentangle tiles (3.5 x 2.5 inches) in both white and black. To tangle on our black tiles we offer white Sakura Gelly Roll® pens and white charcoal pencils.

Here are a couple samples that Maria tangled last night:


In this example above, see how Maria uses her white Gelly Roll® on top of black ink on this white ATC size Zentangle tile. It's a fun exploration that these new tools make possible.


And in this example above of white ink on a black tile, she just had a blast.

There will be more later.

Enjoy!

You guys are just amazing! I have made my Christmas list and sent it to my two daughters. Guess what tops my list this year? Yep! Zentangle supplies! I put the black tiles and the white pen and pencil on it, along with other supplies. I really think im going to add Rick's CD. I can't wait to get them. Keep up the wonderful work that you do knowing there are people out there just loving every second of it, like me.

Happy holidays to you and yours!

Isn't it just amazing how our life's journeys take us just where we need to be? All things fall into place perfectly. The fact that you've incorporated Rick's talents with your talents and can now put it together on a DVD shows how God's plan is perfect is we are patient :) I love the white on black Zentangles! I have been a way from doing Zentangles for a while due to my love for so much other kinds of art mediums, but Thanksgiving is a perfect time with family to just grab a few tiles, pass them around the table with some Micron pens and create while we're cooking! Have a BLESSED Thanksgiving Rick and Maria (and everyone celebrating here in blog land). XOXOX
