Northwest. Various parts of the country have a history of native, tribal art which influences the decorative choices of that particular area. Recently, my husband traveled to Portland, Oregon for a business conference. While there, he found a book, “Looking at Indian Art of the Northwest Coast” by Hilary Stewart. I like the graphic effect produced by using black, white and red. So I decided to give it a try on a Zentangle.

One of the things I love about tan tiles is the ability to add both shades of grey and white highlights. In addition, these tiles are perfect for both brown, black and even white ink, creating lots of variety. All of these factors, added together take simple tangles to a much more sophisticated level!
