Add the berries! . . . . and 3Z mosaic!

Last week, I had 5 students in the Introduction class. By the end of the session, I think that we all felt as though we had made new friends! (3 of the students had previously taken the Intro class, but had the great philosophy that "you can always learn something new"!)

On her first tile, Marti said that it reminded her of holly leaves . . . . and asked if she could add berries! You bet! I love it when students add their own creativity, and say, "what if...."!

(Check out what Pat did with both of hers: She made beautifully soft tiles, using just pencil! This is a great example of playing with "what if.....?")

Here are their tiles:
Their first tile! 

A few days later, I received the new "3Z tiles" from Zentangle. I love them! Each one is a great tile in itself, but you can also put them together as a prestrung mosaic. I can also see experimenting with the Fragment and Reticula concept that Rick and Maria introduced recently! More on this soon....
