Zendala Dare #5

Erin from "The Bright Owl" creates a mandala for us to tangle each week - creating a Zendala. (Still can't figure out how to do a direct link - you can find her blog at: www.thebrightowl.blogspot.ca) I really had fun with this one - it was tough going though as it's a beautiful day and the garden beckons so I was back and forth between the porch, drawing, and digging in the earth. I started out with Punzel which is a tangle I love, but have trouble with. I was determined that it had to go into this one and I confess, I did it in pencil first. Another of my favorites, Moving Day, had to go in as it's such a crazy random yet still a grid pattern. The rest just sort of came together. Thanks Erin for putting together such a great dare each week, and I particularly like the shape this week so may try another! I enjoy reading comments, so please let me know what your thoughts are. Have a wonderful day.

Wow! I love what you've done with this zendala. I also find punzel a little intimidating, but it is great here. I think the curve of the outside black and white curve is a perfect touch. It really showcases the curve of the punzel. And the grid tangles really set off the curves. Wonderful.
