Zendala Swap

One of my favorite things about teaching Zentangle is when we create a mosaic of everyone's tiles. Seeing how everyone did the same tangle patterns but did them in their own way, with their own style, brings home the message that we are all unique in this world. We may walk similar paths, but we have the power to make it our own. Since we just celebrated Earth Day, I choose to look for the ways we can find our points of agreement among our differences to save our earth.

I recently attended a seminar with over 100 Zentangle Teachers in Florida. Many of us created Zendalas using 4 tiles. We then traded with others to create new unique Zendalas. I did two sets and the two pictures that start this post are the two sets that I did.

All of the tiles were displayed on tables so we could see all of them at once and ooh and ahh. I took LOTS of pictures. These are just a few.

As you can see, you don't even have to arrange them in a circle to make an effective display.

These two sets are the ones I went home with.

Thank you to all who participated!!!!
