Portable tangling!

I find myself tangling everywhere – waiting for the kids at appointments, at coffee shops, you name it.  Anywhere I used to reach for my smartphone, I now reach for my tangle kit!

It includes black Sakura Pigma Microns, usually in 01, 03, 05, the Zentangle pencil, a pencil sharpener, (my glasses…) and an envelope I made for storing tiles to keep them clean.  All of the items go into a mesh zipper case.  I super-duper love my tangle travel kit!   This is what mine looks like..

The only problem I’ve had was tangling when a desk isn’t available.  I recently bought some foam board to make some large boards for demonstrations, and had a little left over.  This made me wonder if I could make a mini-lapboard for tangling.  I cut a foam board scrap to be one inch larger than the tiles (i.e. 4.5″), then added two self-adhesive photo corners, and voila!  A mini-tangling surface!

I tried it out today, while waiting for my car to be serviced, and it worked fine.  It’s super cute too!
