It’s day 9 of the TangleFolie challenge for the Francophonie 2021.

If you don’t know about this challenge, you can read more about it by reading the article introducing it, published here.

The theme of this year’s “Dis-moi Dix mots” is AIR.

“Dis-moi Dix mots” is an event organized by the French Department of Culture. The ten words are all related to the theme AIR. Read more about it here

With this theme about AIR, we are faced with a lot of words that speak of breath and wind. I like today’s word “Insufflate”. It means to me there is something that carries or is carried by the breath. A feeling, maybe, that we are in charge and not carried or carried away by the wind as on day 6 or 7, for example.

So let’s dare a little more today.

Let’s let our pen lines swell, let’s be bold. Let’s dare to breathe new life into our tiles (into our lives?).

Tell me what is driving you today!

What are you breathing into your tiles or your lives?

DAY 9 TangleFolie 2021

The WORD: INSUFFLER (insufflate, breathe in, instill)

The TANGLE: SEAWAVE (Seawave –

The SUGGESTION : Instill a new breath or a new wind in your tile today, change some of the weight of
your lines.

If you are a beginner, we suggest that you choose what you think will work best for you. Maybe choose one word or tangle or suggestion per day? Don’t try to do to do everything if it seems too much. You can see a short video of the TANGLE Pepper on day 4 here

This challenge is about having fun!

For those of you who don’t know the Zentangle® Method is a fun, relaxing and easy to learn method of creating beautiful images using basic elements like lines, dots and curves to draw patterns. These patterns are called Tangles and we draw them on a small piece of paper called a tile.

By practicing with the Zentangle method, many discover an increase in concentration and creativity as well as more self-confidence and an increased sense of well-being.

Zentangle is a trademark.
