This week’s I am the Diva CZT’s challenge #179 is to use the official small tile size “Bijou”.  Bijou, the snail mascot for the 2″x2″ tiles, is just the most darling thing!  I don’t even like snails (aka slugs with armour).  This li’l guy is very cute.  You can watch the Zentangle video here.  I created four 2″x2″ pieces.  I’m quite familiar with this size.  The dimensions are close to the squares I draw in my tangle patterns reference sketchbook.  I call this group of tiles “Les études de bijou”.  I decided to only use official Zentangle patterns and stick to the basics.  These didn’t take me long at all.  Enjoy!
