I know why… I’m not an official zen-tangle person so I would not be looking.
But I doodle, and these are great for that!
These are perfect for Inktober — 9 x 9 cm/3.5 x 3.5 inch
(310 gsm) cards made for ink, small enough that you can easily do a drawing a day!
Except, 25 cards to a tin… dang, have to buy TWO.
*i would so hate to have to find a use for two tins… sarcasm, see bottom*
I tried watercolor over a second sketch of carrots…
The traditional watercolor didn’t love the paper, and what might be bright paints
ended up a bit washed out because the paper absorbed the paint.
*nix wet watercolor…. oh well, I didn’t think that would work!*
Then I tried liquid watercolors and inks in a waterbrush.
This worked better — maybe the even delivery of saturated color?
This is one way I might color them if I am doing middle-of-the-night drawings.
Markers, in this case Pitt pens and Tombow, worked wonderfully on the paper.
With rounded edges, acid free and age resistant paper, it has no printing on the back so both sides can be used for mark-making. And, the surfaces appear identical front to back.
*i can imagine using the tiles to make love-notes for mitchell,
stashing them in a book he is reading or on his keyboard or in his guitar strings…
hearts and a salutation on one side, image on the other!*

Me… why I journal!
