Zendala dare # 16

Zendala dare # 16

A nice template we got  for the weekly dare from Erin Olson's The Bright Owl. I liked it because there are more wide open spaces than in a few dares before. So I did two this week. The first one gives me a kind of psychedelic feeling :) haha. But it felt a little tight, so I wanted to do another one to see if I would be able to bring in some fluency and colors. The colors: yes. But fluency.....????

Hi-C, Paradox and Drupe 

Angel fish, Dragonair, Flora and.....

Diva challenge # 80

The Diva's challenge this week was to play with Mi2.

I never used this tangle pattern before because it looked so complicated and difficult to draw. But that was wrong thinking. I followed the steps Rick Roberts showed us here. It was fun to do but I am not very happy with the result. I forgot to do some shading. It looks a very flat. But the result  is never more important than the process. That is what I have to bear in mind every time, so therefore this is what I made this week. Zentangling is a perfect way to let go of my perfectionism.

Zendala dare # 14

 These are my results for this week. It was fun to do. After I made the yin/yang zendala, I wanted to do something with colors.  After that back again to black and white.

Diva challenge # 78 Auraknot

This week I am late with my entry because I had to visit my newborn baby grandson in Belgium. I was very happy to hold him in my arms.

This week we could play with the new official tangle "Auraknot" from I am the Diva. It sure was fun to do, but after some trials, I had to watch the video again and again because I got lost every time. But after watching the video over and over I think I know how to do this. But still it is a tricky one, to me,  which asks a lot of concentration. Especially when I am tired I can't find my way through it.

So this is what I did with Auraknot.

The second one, below,  I did in black and white. It got that strange form after drawing Hi-C around it.  Can't decide whether I like this one or not.

Zendala dare # 13

This week we had to play with paper. The only paper I could find was a very  very light bleu and white marmered piece of paper. After filling in the patterns and scanning, there is nothing to been seen anymore of the marmering. That is a pity, maybe I'll try once more on an other piece. But this is the result. It was fun to do.

I found a piece of children's wrappingpaper. So I did give the challenge another try. I thought it could work, but it didn't. At least not with me. It looks too messy to me.

Zendala dare # 12

This is what I made from the zendala dare for this week. I think it is very busy, and doing all it in black and white would be too heavy. So I decided to use some colour in it, but it is still too busy. I should have left more open space in it I think. I used Dragonair, N'zeppel, Arckles and ?....(sorry, I don't know the name. Anybody does?
The final version

Erin Olson from The Bright Owl gave us this zendala template for this week
