Zendala Dare #9

Every Friday, Erin at www.thebrightowl.blogspot.ca posts a zendala template for us to tangle and submit. This week is #9, and here is my entry. I was inspired by her use of some tangle I'd never seen, so I went into Pinterest and found H2O Flowers by Lori Howe - fell in love with it! That was the beginning of what my pens led me into - a koi pond. I wasn't going to try to make this look like anything in particular, but it just fell together, as tangling tends to do. It looked a bit bare without color, so once I started... again it took on a life of it's own, and I even had a go at some watercolor pencils. This was fun, but took way more time than I had expected (again, the way of tangling). I love looking at others contributions, and I love that people take the time to make comments. Hope everyone is having a terrific weekend. (I did my first craft sale this weekend - see my owl post - and was pleasantly surprised at how much I sold and how much positive feedback I got.)

This is so lovely. The koi pond is a great idea. It definitely captures the zen moment!

Beautiful art. Looks very oriental altogether, not just the koi.

Fiona said...

Wow, fantastic, so much detail and I love the mini fish which finish it off perfectly.
