A few weeks ago I had a heart to heart with myself (which was difficult since I only have one heart, haha) about what I wanted for the future of this blog. What I decided is that first and foremost, I want it to be a resource. I love collecting, organizing and re-purposing information that I find, especially from the internet, and I think this blog is an excellent vehicle for that. Of course, I will be primarily focusing on Zentangle, but also including a few of my other favorite subjects like crafting, healthy living, and cooking.
Over the next 2 weeks I will be introducing you to some new features of my blog. Today I would like to direct you to the new "Tangle Links" tab at the top of the blog. Since starting the Zendala Dare I get a lot of emails asking which tangles I use in my tiles. Even though the tangles are listed below each photo many people, especially those new to Zentangle, have difficulty deciding which is which. I decided to provide a link, whenever possible, for all the tangles I have used. I think you will find it a valuable resource for finding new tangles and a wealth of inspiration. Please read the information I have posted on that page before reposting.
Zendala Dare #50
This template is a bit of a departure for me. I have masked the edges so they are hidden at the edge of the circle. I have always liked this style but it can be a little difficult to master but I think this is an interesting first attempt. Here's what I did with it:
|Tangles: Printemps, Tipple, Courant|
My first vision for this tile involved filling every space, but as is the nature of Zentangle, my primary vision is not what I ended up with. And thats ok. I started with the middle circle, then the star points, and finally ended with the Printemps around the edge. Once I had the Printemps in place I liked the negative space that was left behind so I decided not to fill it. All in all, I think its a pretty good attempt.
I hope you all have a fabulous week and enjoy the new blog!
