On the first day of naptime . . .

We came home to find a Zentangle Ensemble on our kitchen table that Molly created. Our first thought was, "Oh, this is perfect for BLOG Zentangle." Our second thought was, "There's too much here to do all at once."

So, we invite you to join with us for "The Nine Days of Naptime." Molly created these during her daughter's afternoon naps and we think you'll enjoy this beautiful song of tangles in nine verses.

Molly used one of our Ensemble packs.

An Ensemble pack is a set of nine Zentangle tiles that share a common string.

Sometimes different people will each do one tile and then put them all together. There is usually a fun synchronicity of adjacent patterns and it is always wonderful to see a completed group ensemble. In this case Molly did each tile individually without looking at any completed tiles so it was a surprise when she first put it all together.

Here is her first Naptime Ensemble tile.

Here it is in place. Over the next few days, we'll get to watch this Ensemble's string fill with a wonderful dance of tangles.

Tomorrow, verse two!

There is something incredibly peaceful about that tile. Looking forward to seeing this evolve.
