Zendala Dare 46

This week's template for the Zendala Dare reminds me of a jelly mould! 

And here is what I did with it!

I used a little Quandary, some ZedbraBales, Tipple and Tripoli.

Last week when Maria and Rick launched the new official tangle, Quandary, I knew it would only be a matter of time before Laura would serve it up as her weekly challenge.

I did two variations of Quandary and threw in a little of my new favourite Voga.

Do check out the Zentangle newsletter for the step out and some fantastic examples!

So with the Chinese New Year of the Snake dawning, Laura set us the challenge of using Snakes as our inspiration for our Zentangle this week.

I used a Nzeppel for the background for a nice tiled effect, and Voga and Striping for my snake.

Zendala Dare 43

As it's the first Saturday of the month, Erin set us the extra challenge of using tangles that make us feel like an artist!

Well for me that means Nzeppel has to be involved... This tile I drew made me feel really proud!

Bales and Sand Swirl are other favourites of mine, and this tile really made me feel like an artist!

So here's the template for the dare:

And here's my Zendala:

The first challenge of the month is always a Use My Tangle challenge, and for this one Laura randomly selected Dansk, a lovely, swirly tangle by Margaret Bremner.

I added a some Koryl and Crescent Moon and snuck in a little of my Khirkee to finish it off.

Happy tangling...

String Theory

I'm super late on this one... A last minute posting even though my tile has been ready for a few days now!

This week Laura challenged us to use TanglePatterns string 003 for our tiles. I like these challenges as it's fun to see the huge differences in everyone's finished tiles!

These are the tangles I used: Pia, Shattuck, Bunzo, Hekzee, Postl, Beelight & Florz.

Happy tangling...
