Zendala Dare #13

Erin at 'the Bright Owl' has been putting out some lovely zendala patterns that I've been enjoying working with. This week she had another good one but added a twist to the challenge. She challenged us to use a paper other than our usual tangling paper. So - being contrary as I sometimes am, I decide to take this challenge and do it ONLY with a variety of papers. So there is no ink involved here. I used my scissors, paper cutter and craft punches to create a variety of shapes. I had fun creating the 'tipple' pattern using my papers. I used a colored pencil only to sign my initials.

Will I do this again? I doubt it - It took me sooo much longer to punch out all the paper first - and my fingertip hurts from rubbing away all the excess rubber cement. - Oh, and by the way, this one was done on an 8 1/2 inch square - I'm not totally nuts!


  1. Poor fingers! But it is worth it, I think. The result is quite nice.

  2. I know how much hard work was involved in this, Sue, as I paper-crafted for years before I settled on patchworking and now zentangle. You did an amazing job!

  3. Good grief . . . I can only just do SOME patterns with my pen (I'm a beginner) let alone with cut out pieces of paper! Amazing.
