Square Tic Tac Toe style plastic reusable art stencil for Tangling

As a Certified Zentangle Teacher I often get asked about storage for step outs for Tangles as it’s rather time consuming to draw a grid pattern page after page, so I designed this ‘Tic Tac Toe’ style plastic stencil for those who use sketchbooks to draw and store their Tangles. My aim was to create a uniform grid pattern stencil that my students can use with a pen or pencil and without the need for time consuming measuring, making sure each page matches the page before etc, so I decided to make two, this ones fits perfectly over the top of an Apprentice size Zentangle Tile. There is another listing, the a smaller ‘Tic Tac Toe’ style stencil that works in the same way but for the standard size official Zentangle Tiles.

There are 3 parts to this stencil, with the overall size of 140x140mm, 14x14cms with an inner square that measures 115x115mm, 11.5x11.5cms, then a further x9 smaller squares spaced to form a grid pattern with each small square measuring 34x34mm, 3.4x3.4cms

Over the top of the grid there is a ‘Title line’ that has been cut out so you can use this to include the Tangle name, Designer and or the date, which measures 115mm, 11.5cms across.

This stencil is ideal for use in a sketchbook to create a uniform library or Tangles either just use the x9 squares as an outline and fill in with your chosen Tangles ‘step out’ and then on the adjoining page use the outer 11.5x11.5cms square as a Tile showing this Tangle in use.
