Zendala Dare #11
Erin at The Bright Owl presented us with the eleventh zendala dare this week. Above is my traditional zentangle approach to the dare: betweed, zedbra, and something I learned on Art With Mr. E's page. Sorry, don't know the name of the pattern.
This is the blank mandala Erin gave us to use. I chose to ignore some of the lines and to let my patterns overrun those areas.
Then I drew this one up. I'm really enjoying the steampunk angle, and though this design is a simple one - the mandala was perfect for the steampunk idea. The outer ring is called linked. The background is a pattern I've been referring to as barz. I don't know if it's anyone's pattern, but I have been using it a good bit. Filled in the color with what else? Derwent inktense pencils, Pitt artist pens, and slicci pens. This is actually an instagram pix of my tile.
You can see all the zendala dare offerings at Erin's page here. You can even join in the fun! Erin posts a new blank every Friday.
