Sooooo late on this dare, but a bad cough and cold, too much work and my daily Christmas Countdown slowed me down! So yes, I'm publishing this on Christmas Day, as I finally get some time to myself...

I liked the template as soon as I saw it:


And this is how it turned out:


I used the tangles Pooma, Fife, Diva Dance (Waltz), Socc and Sand Swirl.

9th December - Holly






8th December - Snowflake


So Erin's Zendala Dare this week challenged us to make a paper snowflake and use that as our template.

This fit perfectly with my Advent countdown, as I'd planned to draw snowflakes on the 8th!

In the Zendala I used these tangles:
Loblolly, Hurry, Khirkee, Shattuck, and Waft.

Here are a few more pics to show the process:

Zendala Dare 34

I'm a little late posting my response to last week's Zendala Dare. I've been tied up with my Advent tangling!

The template is quite a nice one:


The tangles I used are all new to me...  Loblolly, Bugles, Fungees, and Lanterns.



I think I should have avoided the colours though.

Happy tangling...

7th December - Presents

Keenees

So the challenge from Laura this week is to use the Keenees tangle from Donna Hornsby.

I also decided to try some pencil shading for the Hollibaugh background. It looks better in real life!



Check out other recent posts for my Zentangle Advent countdown... So far there's a snowman, a star, a candle and a stocking.

Happy tangling...
