My wife gave me a gift card to Blick for my birthday a few months ago. I finally used it, and part of the order was a full sheet of Fabriano Tiepolo paper, the stuff official zentangle tiles are made from. It was my first time using the paper (surprisingly, I've never purchased official tiles!), and it was pure fun! That said, I found pencils definitely reacted differently, and I had to try a few different ones to get the deeper shadows I wanted. Looking forward to more tiles! Tangles include Kercott, Airis (using watercolor pencil), and Printemps. #zentangleinspiredart
