Zendala Dare #75

Hi there everyone!  I hope you all had a great week and had a chance to check out my new tangle Solow.  No need to worry this week because the Zendala Dare is on time, but if for some reason it isn't as timely in the future you can find a link to some "Emergency Zendalas" here.

As for my week, it's been pretty uneventful since I last posted.  I have clinicals at the local hospital in less than 6 hours so I'm just going to cut to the chase............

Zendala Dare #75

Here's this weeks template:






For my version I decided to go silver on black.  It didn't come out as vibrant as I was hoping but the combination of the silver and black gives it a lacey and ghostly appearance that is growing on me.  

Tangles: Senju, Diva Dance, Hollibaugh


Have a wonderful week and let's see some amazing Zendalas!

    1. When I first started using the black tiles I used a white pencil to color the back of the template and then traced over it onto the tile leaving a white outline on the tile. The white pencil has a strange consistency so it takes alot of white to cover the template and then the outline it leaves behind is not that impressive. I started using regular graphite and due to the shiny qualities of the graphite it is actually pretty easy to see on the black tile. I have been doing it this way ever since. I hope this helps.

  4. Hi Erin!

    Really like your own tile and this template! It went extra fast, so I just might have to do another one. A heartfelt thanks for how dedicated you are to giving all of us the Zendala Dare. Your personal sharing of family pics and stories is quite entertaining, too. Gosh, I feel like I know you!
    Happy Saturday,

    1. Thanks Jacque. I just feel like my blog would be sort of boring if it was just pictures of my Zentangles so I like to throw some personal stuff in there too! I'm glad you are enjoying them.

  5. Thanks for posting, Erin. This looks like quite a challenge. I loved the emergency zendalas and have posted one. I still want to do the one with the pacmen as soon as I've invented a solution. I'm looking forward to dare 75! Hope you got on well in the hospital!

  6. Erin, has something changed on your blog over the last couple of days? I cannot seem to find the page that has all the dare links. I thought it was a link at the top of your page but all the buttons are missing. Anyway I had some friends this weekend ask where I got my templates and I wanted to send them to the page where you have all the links.

    1. Unfortunately, my computer skills are limited. After I redesigned my blog I noticed that sometimes after a layout change all those links at the top dissappear. Most of the time I don't notice until someone like you alerts me to it! Unfortunately, blogging help is not readily available and I dont know how to stop it. It only happens every other month or so and its an easy fix. I just have to catch it! Thanks for letting me know. It's all good to go. Tell your friends!

  9. Erin, that IS kind of spider weby! It is interesting the way the negative/ positive areas kind of change with the silver as the negative space
