I loved the class. It's amazing what a frame can do for a tile. I like how you go into detail as we are going along.

Loved this class Eni! I almost feel it was two classes in one. learning the logistics for framing and corners then effective use of water color and background tangling. Thank you for your willingnesss to share so much of your thoughts and talents! God bless and have a wonderful day!

Zentangle is, from a purist standpoint, black and white, monochrome. However, Eni, you pull me in wonderful directions. This Framed & Cornered lesson gave me intensive information on the use of watercolours and layering of colour, both areas I need to develop. I have a number of tiles that, unbeknownst to me, were crying out for these intricate frames. Your 1.2 hour video imparted a wealth of knowledge. Each of my tiles, under your influence, are showing the advances. It is interesting to arrange them in chronological order; I can see the improvement in my style, thanks to your generous sharing of knowledge. My Littles especially like the colourful tiles and you now have them working on your techniques as they try to emulate my tiles. I wonder where they will go?

There is a time to create contrast and a time to use low-contrast. This lesson explores when to use each one


You can transform all your unfinished projects into mini-masterpieces!
