Another Laura-the-Diva Challenge! Create a tile using ONLY the official tangles Dex and Verdigogh.

Now I use Verdigogh quite a bit, but had never actually used Dex, so this was fun!
It's good for us to try new things.

But of course, I had all the awesome new Black Stuff, so I had to start there!

And then I thought I'd do a black-on-white one, too.

Looking forward to more classes, the next Challenge, a new granddaughter . . .

but now, to sleep, and tomorrow to Work!

I am having a somewhat impromptu class on Tuesday, June 28. If you're in Asheville and interested e-mail me!

The Black Stuff is here!!

My new Zentangle supplies, including BLACK Zentangle tiles and ATC's, arrived today! First thing I did was pull out a black tile, and a white Gelly Roll pen and white charcoal pencil. I handed these to my Last Daughter to play with, while I unpacked all the other goodies.

I suggested she try the pen by signing the back, but she chose instead to pen the name of my Next Granddaughter. Then she turned it over, dated the front, and took the charcoal pencil in hand. She drew a little sort of squiggly string-y line, and gave it back to me, pronouncing all materials "fabulous."

Now I could not leave a strung tile un-tangled, so:

I've designed a Sampler Kit of the new Black tiles and white pens and hope to have these available for sale next week.

I had a Great Class yesterday with a group of Tangling Quilters. Unfortunately I failed to get any photos, but we had a lot of fun!!
