|One of my best costumes ever! I made it myself.|
But wait! There's more! This week I noticed that I now have 200 followers! Yes, 200! Can you believe it? I remember how thrilled I was when I hit 20, but 200? That number boggles me. I couldn't just let such a momentous occasion pass without some kind of celebration so of course I decided on a giveaway!
To celebrate all my amazing followers I will be giving away two sets of official Zentangle Zendala Tiles. So two of you, my faithful readers, will walk away with an awesome set of Zendala tiles! For this giveaway I am using Rafflecopter since it seems to be the easiest way to manage these things now. Enter below, it's easy!

Now onto the main attraction
Zendala Dare #26 - It's here, it's finally here!
It's the first Saturday of the month so time to mix it up a little. To celebrate my favorite season, Fall, and my favorite holiday, Halloween, I thought we would use those two things as prompts for this weeks Dare. Your Dare for the week is to use the template below and make a Zendala that represents Fall or Halloween or a combination of both if you are so inclined. You can use tangles, colors, papers, or anything that you can dream up to create an amazing Zendala inspired by the season and/or holiday. Here's your template:
UPDATE: So when I said I would post my Zendala's the next day, apparently I meant within the next 6 days! Sorry for the wait, here they are:
I don't usually use the white gelly pen but I thought it might look good on the orange paper I wanted to use to get a fall look.
|Tangles: Pearlz, Spokes, Candle Glow,|
I really like the way this turned out but need to remember to use white charcoal to transfer my image next time. I ended up with some visible graphite that was not to attractive. I used Striping to make the triangles look like candy corn and Blooming Lace reminded me of spider webs. I finished it off with Candle Glow because they looked like little ghosts to me.
Then I decided that I had so much free time (yah, right!) that I should make one that was the opposite of the first.
|Tangles: Beadlines, Pearlz, Crescent Moon,|
There are a lot of amazing artists out there who do single colored pieces and I am always in awe so I decided it was time for me to step up to the plate.
This piece has its good and not so good. A) I need to use something other than graphite for the transfer. B) I could have probably chosen a better tangle for the grid in the middle. I tried to make it less plain by adding Beadlines and I think that was a really bad move. C) I learned that I really like using colored microns. D) I learned a lot about shading with color. So overall, I think it was a successful Zendala.
I hope you all have a fabulous week!
