Zendala Moments 1

Zendala moments #1

If you have been reading my blog you probably know that I love using color and I love Zendalas. I used to participate regularly in the Zendala challenge that Erin at the Bright Owl used to put up but she has had to curtail those now. So when I saw a new Zendala challenge - well, WHEEEE!!

The Zendala Moments come from Annette. Her blog is in German but my computer automatically translates her page - although the zendala line work doesn't really need any translation.

Here you can see that I used the line work as a jumping off point. I did my own thing and didn't worry about 'staying in the lines'. I used a pink Micron pen on one of my handcolored tiles. I shaded with colored pencil and highlighted with chalk pencil.

More good news - I've been asked to teach at the Rocky Mountain Zentangle Retreat. And I will be going into detail about my color on color technique. It's going to be a lot of fun. Details can be found here. http://www.rockymountainzentangleretreat.com/ I hope I see you there!


  1. I really like your version of the Zendala - especially the way you go from deep pink to white highlights. I love seeing how we all took this in different directions.

    Annette provides an English translation further down her blog posts so you don't have to rely on the sometimes shaky computer translations!

  2. I'm excited to be taking your class and teaching at the Rocky Mountain Zentangle Retreat in June. Hope we sell out! Love this color, too!

  3. Wonderful and elegant zendala! Like your colour on colour tangling a lot.
    Thank you for joining Zendala Moments! I´m glad you like it.

    P.S. I have add your link to Mr. Linky.
