Zendala Dare #73

Hello fellow Zendala aficionados!  I hope you have all had a fantastic week.  Mine has been filled with the standards.  Work, school, and a little tangling time.  I wish I had cool pictures to post for you but unfortunately I haven't been any place that is picture worthy this week so lets just get to it..........


Zendala Dare #73


I have to admit I'm a little scare to show you the template.  It's not my usual work and it may appear difficult but let me just say, this is one of my favorite Zendala's of all time.  So here ya go.



When I first created this template I thought the points might create a problem for tanglers so I was hesistant to use it.  When I looked it up I realized that this template has actually been in my arsenal since the second week of the Zendala Dare.  Isn't it wierd how we can blow our fears out of proportion no matter how minor the consequence.  I mean, what's the worst that can happen?  I don't create the best Zendala of my life? My fellow readers voice their dislike? No need to worry, both of these things have already happened.  lol  Here's what I did with it.

Tangles:  Hibred, Pearlz, Apeel, Baton,
Printemps, Caviar

I felt like this Zendala had a lot more definition before I shaded it, but regardless I LOVE the end result.  It appears Asian, Indian, and amazing all at the same time.  This one makes me feel like an artist.  

Tangles:  Black Pearlz, Caviar

On my second attempt I was going for something a little more organic.  The end result is not what I had intended but it never is with Zentangle.  


Have a wonderful week and remember to link up!
