I had company all weekend....and believe it or not we zentangled shoes, so I did not get into the da until today. Thank you Erin for the wonderful template. I so love the dares
This one was inspired by the pattern in the photo above.
Maria Vennekens has issued a challenge, as a guest at I am the Diva,....and wants the thoughts of how it worked out for us, well Maria I must tell you that my first thought was, is there a pattern that hasn't been made? With so many people developing patterns and tangleations I am sure it is almost impossible not to step upon someones toes. Keeping that in mind and knowing that I might not be the first to step out some patterns I do want to share this experience with you. First of all I took a google journey into patterns of nature, then I looked around my house. The 2 pieces I did today were influenced by those searches. So here goes. The first pattern I found was through google and here is the picture I found:
And below is my tile
And the step out
The second inspiration
And my crazy response to what I saw
And the step out
and it was zen because I did free flow after the first attempts of figuring out a pattern I had a pattern and so I didn't have to worry any longer. Maybe I didn't do the challenge right. Maria, tell me if I should try again. Thanks for the fun!
And Laura, I am so happy to have the challenges each week. Thanks to you too!
To begin I want to share with you the new Denzer Art Site as I promised when I received requests. I just posted all my patterns on there. I thought you might enjoy seeing what my daughters, Sarah, Eve, and Martha have posted.
For this week's challenge I have just finished my first tile....I hope to keep on working on this one for several days. It was a fun challenge and I am excited about where it will lead me.
The swan appeared as I was playing with my first tile,which is the third tile in this post. Sorry I took them off the wire, Mary, I just couldn't resist. Me and my swans. Thank you for the great pattern and Laura I so appreciate you. I do love the challenges!
So this week Erin decided that we should choose a template that just didn't go our way and revisit it! There have been a few that really gave me the run around and talking about round I chose template Dare #52.
I hope you all have fun with this dare!
I love using Bales, it makes for a fabulous adventure.. Tangleations are my favorite. I just love figuring out new things to do with basic patterns. I so appreciate the wonderful challenges that Laura sends our way.
The template inspires and calls out to me, the pen hesitates again and again but voila I conquer! Thank you so much Erin for the dare and your wonderful efforts to give us a fun Saturday activity!
Not dare related I just used a real tile! This was fun!
What a rich fun challenge, thank you so much to Maria and Laura for the inspiration! I am going to be going places with this opportunity that I do not even know yet, So much to explore!
My son talked me into only shading half of each zendala dare......crazy but it works.
