Once again, last night I had the best intentions of posting, but I
Zendala Dare #77
So the last time I posted I promised a cool extra challenge and a really cool template and I am still prepared to deliver on that. This template was love at first site for me. I'm not sure why, but as this template was developing I just loved it more and more. It is a departure from my usual but I think it has so many possibilities. I think you are going to love it!
Now, onto the added challenge. The added challenge usually occurs on the first Dare of the month but I couldn't pull it together in time so your getting it now and it's a great one. You
probably will freak out may be resistant to it, but I am really encouraging you to try and complete it.
There is a new trend afoot called Random Act of Zentangle. It is in the same vein as Random Acts of Kindness or Paying it Forward but with a Zentangle twist. Here's what you do:
1. Print out the template, transfer to an appropriate tile and then fill with amazing tangles.
2. On the back of the tile write something about it being a Random Act of Zentangle. I usually write something like "Congrats! You have just found a Random Act of Zentangle. This piece of art has been left here for you to find or pass it on. Enjoy!" You can write whatever you like. Some people like to write something about their website or Zentangle.com but that feels a little like an advertisement to me so I personally choose not to go that route.
3. Take the tile to a public place and leave it somewhere. Take a picture of it wherever you are leaving it and then........walk away. Yes, back away from the tile. Come on, you can do it. It will be ok. Someone will find it in just a few minutes and give it a new home. Alternately, if you want, some people choose to give it to someone directly as a sort of Random Act of Kindness. Either is fine, the point is to give it away though.
4. Now take your picture and go to this Facebook link and post your picture and a little bit of info about where you left it. If you are not on Facebook, that is fine too. You can just write about it in your blog or on your Flickr or Picasa album but the Facebook page is a lot of fun to look at.
Here's what I did with mine:
This was my first attempt.
|I left this Zentangle in the restroom at Chevy's|
in Santa Rosa, CA.
|Tangles: Allium, Floo, Zinger, Enyshou|
I can't wait to see where you leave your Random Act of Zentangle!
Make sure to link up and post on the Facebook page!
Have a great week.
