9th December - Holly

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

Wednesday, 5 December 2012


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...
