The Diva challenge this week is to use a smaller size tile. Bijou is a little snail that migrated to the US from Paris, when Maria and Rick were traveling. It is a charming story, that you can find at diva challenge 179: bijou space I don't have any Zentangle ™ tiles, but usually eyeball my measurements to the 3.5 inch size...or not. For me, until I get some Zentangle ® tiles in the house, the size isn't as important as the creativity and exploration.
However, with this challenge, I did get out my ruler and measured 2 inch squares to work in. One page of my sketch book can hold six two inch squares, so i did a couple of those.
On this page, I explored connecting the squares to each other just a bit. It was fun to do, but nothing struck me as special, really.
However, the binial, upper left corner, gave me an idea: why not take one element of a tiny design, and make it large, to fit into the two inch bijou square?

I liked this page better, but it was harder than I thought to find patterns with tiny elements to expand on. I wasn't really looking for grid things like camelia...but it's a favorite, so it's in.
this one is my favorite. Binial.
this is a fun challenge, and I'm going to make a template out of card stock, so i can always have some bijou size spaces to work in.
