I thought I would have a go at a Zendala this week as I haven’t done one before and I’ve admired them on other tangler’s blogs. The Zendala Dare is a weekly challenge over on the Bright Owl’s blog. Every week a template is provided and this week’s dare is a Snowflake Surprise.
As I said, this was my first Zendala, but I must admit that I found it less relaxing to do than a regular tangle, because I found the repetition a bit tedious. My gut reaction was to do each of the 10 points the same but next time I’m thinking that I’ll alternate around the template instead to get some more variety in.
I do like to add a bit of colour to my tangles and as we were on snowflakes it had to be a little blue.
Last week I tried my hand at getting some perspective into my tangle and I decided to carry on in that vein until I feel like I’ve cracked it. Still have some way to go I think. Feathers was my last tangle and I started at the top in an attempt to get the sizing right, but was half way down the page when I realised that I hadn’t lined the curves up correctly! So it became a feathers variant!
As I still had my blue ProMarkers out from doing the snowflake, I thought I’d highlight Charlie a little too.
The sun is out now so I’m off to do some gardening while I can.
