Tangling Zenith in white ink on a black tile with CZT Molly Hollibaugh

zenith-tile-molly-hollibaughSomething a little different for our Monday tangle, a video treat …

The Zentangle®-original tangle Zenith was released in April of 2015, a pretty ribbon-style tangle. At the time I wrote:

Zenith is elegantly simple, composed of Zentangle’s elemental strokes of a curve and a straight line. And an aura and an orb here and there. Not only is Zenith a very easy tangle to draw, but I think you will be quite amazed at the wide variety of variations possible with these few simple elements.

Sakura of America recently produced the 16-minute video below featuring Zentangle Product Manager and CZT Molly Hollibaugh tangling Zenith on a black tile.

In her calm and encouraging style, Molly tangles while sharing several tips about using a White Sakura Gelly Roll pen on a Black Zentangle Tile.

She also demonstrates how to use a white charcoal pencil to add a layer of dimension to the white-on-black piece.

Molly adds more layers of interest with a regular graphite pencil and a Sakura Black Micron pen over the (well dried) white Gelly Roll ink. Molly’s finished tile:

I hope you’ve enjoyed spending a few meditative minutes with Molly today and are inspired to give these tools and tips a whirl in your Zentangle practice.

BTW, for future reference you can also locate this video on Zenith’s page.
