Zendala Dare #54

Here we are again!  Bright eyed and bushy tailed (what the heck does that mean anyhow?) and ready for another week of the Zendala Dare.  First I need to announce the winners from last weeks giveaway.  The winners of the the 2013 Tangle-a-day calendars are:




The winners will receive an email telling them how to claim their prize and I will get them sent out this week.

Thank you so much for all the compliments, comments and kind words regarding the 1 year anniversary of the Zendala Dare.  It looks like you guys want me to keep going so I guess I'm in for another year of templates!

When I got home from work this morning, I had a few minutes to kill and noticed that the bees were going crazy on my salvia plant in the front yard.  So I took a few pictures while I was looking around the yard.







The weather has been amazing here in Sonoma County so I figured I should take advantage of it while I have the chance.



Zendala Dare #54

I'm mixing it up a little with this weeks template.





This template has more movement than some of my other Zendala's so I felt like there were many options for tangles.  I really like how it turned out.

Tangles:  Mooka, Kwiet, Ambler

Make sure to post your submission below.  Even if you are new to the Dare we would love to see what you do with the template!




Have a fantastic week!

  12. This was a very interesting template. I decided to go down a contrary path and avoid making it floral (though there is one little flower). So I started with the bird shape. But it all got out of hand, as usual, zoologically speaking......
    Thanks for the dare, Erin!

  14. Love your flower pictures Erin. Wish we had them here. We've still got piles of snow. I tried to make my entry this week flower like.

  15. I found this template more challenging than I thought it would be. I think I liked it better before I colored it, but I forgot to take a picture of the black and white. As usual, I enjoyed this week's challenge very much.
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers with us.
