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!
