First, the updates. I have had a very busy schedule the last couple of weeks and was falling behind on my own tiles for the Zendala Dare. I was a little embarrassed about it but I'm all caught up now and appreciate your patience. If you would like to see what I posted for the last two Dare's you can look here and here.
Secondly, I noticed some weirdness on my blog this week. Every once in a while an old blog post will get some extra hits but it is usually because someone has posted it on Pinterest or mentioned it in a class. This week I noticed that my post about my tangle Socc was getting a lot of hits and I mean A LOT! I have to admit that my schedule has been preventing me from keeping up with the Diva Challenge for the past few weeks so when I finally realized that Socc had been chosen for the Use My Tangle challenge I was completely taken aback. I have been overwhelmed by the positive responses I have received and am so honored to be featured on the Diva's blog. Thanks Laura!
I was also very excited to get a surprise in the mail this week. Several months ago Suzanne McNeill, the author of many books about Zentangle, asked if I would like to be in a new book about Zendala's. Well of course you know my answer! Yes, Yes, Yes! The book arrived on my doorstep this week and I don't want to brag (but I'm going to anyhow) but my Zendala's turned out great! It is such an honor to be included with so many other amazing artists, including some of my fellow CZT 7 graduates!
Want to see more than just the cover? Well it just so happens that I am giving away a copy of this awesome book. Simply enter below using Rafflecopter and you will be entered to win.
I also wanted to give you a heads up about a tutorial I will be posting within the next week or two. I have been working on it for over a month now and I think you guys will really enjoy it so make sure to check back! Not only is the tutorial pretty cool but you know how much I love giveaways!
Now for the main event:
Zendala Dare #31
When I scroll through my templates each week and decide what I would like to use, this template seems to always catch my eye but for one reason or another I decide against using it. Well, this week it won out, for good or bad, you decide.
Since I needed to do a tile using Socc for the Diva Challenge I figured why not kill two birds with one stone. This piece measures 8 inches across and is a mono tangle which was a lot more time intensive than I had bargained for. What do you think?
Remember to link up below and don't forget to enter the give away!
Hope you have an amazing week.
