Zentangle® Weekly Challenge #179 – Be Like Bijou

One of the most exciting features shared at Certified Zentangle Teacher Seminar #14 was the release of Bijou and Bijou tiles from Zentangle®. Check out this awesome video introducing the world to this adorable snail and his philosophy on tangling.

Above, you can see a few of the Bijoux tiles I tangled this week while on vacation with my family in Colorado. Laura Harms of IamtheDivaCZT invited us all to be like Bijou this week. I have found that I love creating monotangles on these small tiles. I also love my new gold, sparkly Gelly Roll Pen from Sakura.

The Zentangle Weekly Challenge Keeps Me Motivated

Below you can see another video of Bijou and his new tiles. Fun stuff! For those of you who are intimidated by the larger size Zentangle® tiles or are just getting started, this can be a great way to begin your tangling journey.

    I really love all your little Bijoux! The one with tripoli keeps catching my eye, I love that little bit of yellow in it.

      I had fun with the Tripoli and adding the gold shiny Gellyroll pen to it! Thanks Anoeska!
