Zendala Dare 31
When I first saw the template for Erin's challenge for her Zendala Dare 31 I thought, no way, those spaces were just too tiny! Look at The Bright Owl for the template But the more I thought about it the more I knew I just had to accept the challenge. So I got the design onto my blank tile and just stared at it. It took me a couple of days to figure out what I wanted to do with it.
Easiest thing for me to start with, was to color it. I started by just coloring it all a soft yellow. Then I added my orange and red. Now I had something to work with!
OK, now I had to do tangles. But what? My favorite, bread and butter tangle, is Bales. So I looked at the template over and over, how could I get the Bales tangle into the tiny spaces? Finally it hit me. Just do a monotangle! So I got out my red Sakura Micron Pigma pen and off I went.
The simplicity of doing a montangle was so soothing, I was really feeling the zen!
