A quick note about my Relay for Life raffle: I promise, promise, promise, that it is in the works. I hope to have a winner announced by next week. Thank you for your patience.
Zendala Dare #22 - Monodala
As most of you know, on the first Friday of every month the Zendala Dare comes with a little extra challenge. This weeks challenge is to make a Monodala (yes I came up with that myself, even though it does sound a little like some kind of exotic disease). A monodala is a Zendala that is made using only one tangle. You can create tangleations to your hearts delight but try to keep your tangles to just one!
I find that one of the hardest parts of a ZIA is deciding which tangle to use next. This exercise was very liberating because I just picked a tangle and then modified it as I went without having to think about "Oh no, what now?" It went much faster than most of my other Zendala's and it took me to that restful place that I love so much when I am tangling.
Here is this weeks template:
I chose to use the tangle Striping for my Monodala. I like that I could add a lot of sparkles to my monodala to achieve some depth while still sticking with only one tangle. The mostly black pieces in the four corners were actually a mistake so I decided to just color them in to add a little more depth to the piece. I really like the way this turned out and will probably be doing more of these.
Please post your Monodala's using the link
below. I look forward to seeing your creations
and hope that you have a fantastic week!
