aka water lilies

I’m trying to decide how to organize by pattern collection. It’s growing and the binder I have is too large to fit in my Zentangle organizer. Still playing with ideas, but while looking through all the patterns I was drawn to lilypads. A small Zentangle break later I had this tile.

inexpensive frame option

While traveling, I came across this inexpensive option for framing 3.5″ x 3.5″ tiles (I paid $1.85 for a package of two frames). These frames are available at some Walmart stores (and on their site). They are Walmart’s MainStay brand and at 4″ x 4″ they work just fine giving you a bit of black background around your tile.


MainStay 4″ x 4″ frames

They are plastic frames and the front glass pops out. With a bit of double sided tape (I used a swipe of a glue stick) just center the tile and pop the glass back in. You can hang them on the wall or use the small easel (that comes with the frame) for table top display.
