No challenge this week and so I find myself just tangling for the fun of it. I purchased some blank cards. They are always smooth and fun to work with. I will just put some of them up as I go about making them when the zentangle bug hits.
I have been trying different things with Quandary ever since I received my newsletter last week. I love this tangle! It has so many possibilities! I am happy Laura chose it for the challenge today! I purchased some blank cards on Sat. and today was the perfect time to try them out. I went ahead and framed them in my apps.....I am playing with my new ipad. Can't wait to see what you all do with this one! Thank you Laura!
A card I made for a friend!
Quandary is a fun pattern full of possibilities. Thank you Rick and Maria!
There is definitely more scope for the imagination when thinking about how to accomplish this challenge. In the past people have always seen snakes in my ribbons and I wasn't sure I wanted that...this time I have permission and I find myself resisting the snake. I'll get there I promise. As for now....these are my first attempts at the challenge. Thank you Laura!
Playing with editing I put the pattern into negative mode and then placed it in a frame.
Seeing all the fabulous responses to the challenge......I decided
to embrace the snake!
My zentangling is a process and I must say that is not the way it is supposed to be. They all say there are no mistakes and so this morning I wanted to confess to you all that I am not good at that. As I began the zendala I began with the one on the top right and you can tell how far I went before I gave up on that one. The top left was my second attempt....you will not be able to see where I gave up because it is tucked under the finished zendala. I just wasn't sure I liked the direction of where it was going. The third is finished and I am al---most happy with that one. So now you know my secret of half finished or just started zendalas. Do any of you have that problem?
Check out the template and dare at Erin's site.
I love this pattern.....I am still not sure that I have it right but there is a great video at her blog and I know you will have as much fun I as have, when you give it a try!
Use my tangle week and I was happy to see a Margaret tangle. "Dansk" is a smooth flowing tangle pattern and Margaret suggested that you keep the tear drops to a minimum but as usual I found myself going overboard. It was great fun. Thanks to Margaret for a fabulous pattern....and to Laura for the challenge that gives my week a boost!
I am a wife, mother, grandmother, clerk, and appreciator of art. Sometimes I try to produce some art myself. Mainly I love the art of others. Doodling has been a big part of my life. Notes were never left unadorned. Now that I have found zentangle....doodling has become more exciting and fun! I hope you enjoy.
