Zendala Dare.#90 - Happy Birthday! - favourite ? tangles

This week's Zendala Dare has the added request from Erin that we use our favourite tangles in honour of her birthday. Not an easy thing to do for me since I have many, many favourites, and even my absolute favourites change frequently. Some days I favour grids, some days, something more organic. Some days I force myself to tangle when I'm just not in the mood, and then if I'm not happy with the result, a particular tangle may take on disfavour for a while… So. This one is for Erin - Happy Birthday Erin! The Heartstring is for the love of Zentangle and all that Erin gives, and gives, and gives. 'Nzeppel was really hard for me to understand, but once I got it, I've had hours of fun with it. And Gneiss - well it worked here, and I love how it is so simple but has such huge impact. I wanted to do another Zendala this week, because there are a few more tangles I would like to use on this template, but it's not going to happen. Now I'm off to look at others work. (And Erin, I didn't get a chance to comment on your blog post about the fellow who just wanted the templates and nothing else - so I just want to say, WE LOVE YOU! KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING, 'CAUSE YOU DO IT SO WELL!)

'Nzeppel is one of my favorite tangles also. I like how it develops and that you can do it in a structured grid or more free form. Never quite sure it I think of it as a floral pattern or a stone walkway. Like the Heartstring around the outside.

Your Dare turned out just great! I also did mine using a fine line colored pen. I really like the way this looks.

Heartstrings makes a great border. All in all, a great Dare.

I like your zendala, I like it a lot. The color in it makes is very beautiful as the tangles do too.

Oh yes, really good choices - when I see other people's tangles, I think, oh no, THAT's my favourite! Nzeppel took me a while to get but now I adore it. Great Zendala! Axxx

Oh Sue it is beautiful the Nzeppel with the brown and black pen. Gives so much depth. I like your hearts at the outside of the zendala, they are looking great.
