Last week the Zentangle staff visited the Providence Biltmore where we will hold next years CZT training seminars.

While there we shot this video (one take, no edits!) to celebrate this fun series.

Words and links:
On the last day of 3Zs,
    Bijou showed to me,
    huggins hugging huggins,
Wandering icanthis,
Not so boring drawings,
Tangled auraknot-ings,
Perky pokeleafs peeking,
Dark and naughty knightsbridge,
Swirling molygon-ings,
Gold, glowing tipples,
Some marasu encircling,
Winsome bits of shattuck,
Fetching diva dancing,
And a tile full of tripoli!

If you thought we were a big company, well, here we are . . . family, friends and neighbors who love to work with each other and for all of you in this worldwide creative and appreciative Zentangle community. We never take it for granted. Thank you!

And thank you again for all who commented, shared and enjoyed this year's Twelve Days series. We are in awe to watch this renaissance in Zentangle Art. We love that this creativity seems to build on itself, inspiring others (and us) to explore new possibilities . . . and then share it back with everyone.

You can see so many of these sparkling creative gems on the Zentangle Mosaic app (free to view on iPhone, iPad and Android smartphone). We are so proud of and grateful for all the artists who have allowed us (and everyone) into their "portphonio" of Zentangle art.

Here's a mosaic of all twelve day's 78 tiles. Each row represents one day!

'Til next year,   Our Best Good Wishes for a wonderful life.


Rick, Maria, Bijou, Alfie and all of us at Zentangle HQ!

So much fun to watch you all enjoying singing the 12 days of 3Zs! It was a wonderful 12 days of creative sharing, inspired by this challenge and the group of you at zentangle HQ, to reach outside and stretch our collective selves. So much joy in participating and tickled to have won to boot! Honestly the true gift is what you offer this community every single day. Thank you. I am grateful to have discovered zentangle. A wondrous Christmas to you all and a new year filled with family and friends, love and laughter!

I am so so happy to be on the list of recipients of this wonderful gift! I am feeling so blessed, not just by the gift of tiles, but also by the community, support, and genuine caring I have experienced these past months. Thank you, for all that you do. I know a lot of people have stories about how the practice of Zentangle has made a difference in their lives. I know it certainly has been that for me, and a time of emotional/spiritual healing I have been going through since June. Sending all of the Zentangle family and community much love this holiday season.

Thank you for a wonderful little journey of tiles running up to the festive season. As PamS commented - the real prize is the gift you've given to so many with a way of creating patterns, a pen in my hands is no longer just a tool for writing with. Thanks again & have a Blessed Christmas & New Year.

This was such a fun event. Thank you so much. I am still really curious about the book Alfie and Bijou used in their photo shoot. Happy Holidays.

Thank you for the 12 days of fun!!!!

Ingrid said...

Yahoo! Lucky to see my name on that list! My first time engaging in such an activity and loved every moment. A bit intimidated at first but after a few tiles a comfort level set in! Surprised myself!

Ingrid said...

Belgium! Special place to me. Both my parents from Belgium - Flemish!

Lianne said...

Loved your 12 Days of 3Zs song. It bought a smile to my face. Thank you for running the 12 Days of 3Zs. It was so much fun. It was also very inspiring to see what others had created as well. Merry Christmas to All. I look forward to a wonderful 2017.

Unknown said...

Soooo, fun to see your video (Martha, no fair hiding! ;-) and so fun to see so many names I know (even though we've NEVER met :-) and follow on Mosaic! It made me feel like I'd won too. Congrats to everyone for being a part of this great "family"! Blessings to All!

Carol Graham said...

Wow! What a pleasant surprise to see my name on the list!!! I loved, loved, loved participating in this my first challenge.The gift of the tiles are icing on my Zentangle cake. Thank you all for all of the love, care and time you gave to give us this opportunity. It could not have been done better! Happy Holidays to all! 💕😘💕

Congrats to all the winners.

Congrats to all the winners, which really includes all of us, even if we weren't on the prize lists, because we all had a good time doing these 3z's (🎶we 3z's of Zentangle are...🎶 haha). It would be fun to know who each of these singers were, because other than Rick, Maria, and one or two others, many of us do not know who these gentle carollers are!
Happy Hol's and Merry Christmas, to all.

Lisa W said...

Congratulations to the selected winners! Merry Christmas to each and every one of the lucky tanglers who have been so fortunate to have shared this experience with each other. What a creative, engaging, and interactive activity. And the bonus video at the end... Priceless! Cheers!

Kat van Rooyen, CZT said...

I gasped and did a double take when I saw my name on the list!! Shocked doesn't cover it and neither does grateful. I can't express what the past year and a half in the "family" (I call you all my "tribe") has done for me. I love all my fellow CZTs and fellow tanglers. Thank you for being there for me in my time of sorrow, Rick and Maria. I love you. ❤️💜💙💚💛💖

What a fun challenge... and you didn't even get your tongue twisted as you sang the 12 Days of 3Zs. Thanks to all of you at HQ, and your continuing to reach outside the box with our wonderful Zentangle Art.
