Meeting Notes

We had a conference call yesterday. We both took notes. Here are Maria's:

The early morning sunlight filters through branches at low angle to reveal this paper's wonderful texture. (Click image for larger view.) We tested dozens of fine papers and pens before setting on this combination for our kit.

When we started out we were just cutting our paper into squares. One day our daughter put my jeans through the wash. When I reached into my pocket, I found some Zentangles I had done. Their images were just fine, but the tiles' corners were rounded and their edges were no longer straight.
It looked so much more beautiful that way - suggesting a natural deckle on a tiny sheet of handmade paper - that we chose to create a die and cut them like that from then on.
