Zendala Dare #12

Photobucket
Behold. The blank mandala Erin gave us this week. This is a weekly challenge where Erin posts a blank on the Bright Owl, and we fill in the tangles! I thought this was a fairly easy one, but it actually turned out to be the most intricate drawing I've done. I think.

And this is what I did with it. I tried some new tangles that I hadn't used before: pokeleaf, pokeroot, fencee, and a variation of purk. On my hand-drawn tile I have a border of snookums in that vast whiteland seen above, BUT I picked up the wrong pitt artist pen and ruined it. Ruined with a capital Ruin! So badly I couldn't figure out how to resurrect it. So, I removed snookums in photoshop. On my real tile I am probably going to remove it with a pair of deckle-edged scissors. Please head over to the Bright Owl and check out this week's zendalas. There is plenty of time to join in the fun and add one of your own :).

  1. This is beautiful, Alice. I know what you mean about having to rescue a tile, even though there are supposed to be no mistakes in zentangling! I had to resort to some white acrylic paint myself this week........ooops I meant to keep that a secret!

  2. Wow! Awesome! I haven't even started yet. I am going to have to google the zentangle forms or buy a book or something. I know nothing about all these types of doodles. Time to learn, I guess. ;)

  3. Great zendala. We wouldn't have known if you hadn't told us that you removed something. And I know what you mean about no mistakes. I understand that, but when I finish something and don't like the way it looks I either have to figure out a way to "fix" the no-mistake, or throw the whole thing out. Maybe they'll change my mind in September when I go to the zentangle.com workshop. I'm open to new ideas, lol. And a special note to Rita: if you stop back here and see this, go to two places, zentangle.com and tanglepatterns.com; you will find a wealth of info there. Hugs; all.

  14. Love it! Love the colors, the tangles, and the bright, warm feeling it conveys. It looks perfect with the white border and the color-coordinated background. I'd never know there was any "mistake".
