Zendala Dare #100 !! Wow, 100 Zendala's - so wonderful!

This is my celebratory contribution to the 100th zendala template from Erin at www.thebrightowl.blogspot.com. I haven't done every zendala, but pretty close, and many I've used several times. I love playing with the templates. Sometimes Erin adds in a twist, and she was subtle about this one - encouraging us to celebrate. So with Easter coming up next weekend, I decided that this template was great for easter eggs, and jelly beans in a sort of basket. I had intended to do something more with the 5 Copada-like things on the outside, but they weren't speaking to me so I left them as is… Happy Easter everyone, and happy spring!

Zentangle Challenge #210 - Spiralstring - that's the thing

This week's Zentangle Challenge from Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca is to use a spiral as our string. Challenging! I used Michelle Beauchamp's spiral guide to do the string for the second tile. Love it, and want to play around with her way of doing it a bit more! I started both of these tiles while waiting in the hospital for a family member's minor procedure. Hospitals are stressful, and I can't think of a better way to change focus, keep relatively calm, and pass the time while waiting there! Thanks again Laura for another wonderful challenge!

Zendala Dare #99

My entry for this week's Zendala Dare from Erin at www.thebrightowl.blogspot.com. I'm down with a cold after spending a fabulous week in Cuba, but really wanted to participate in this week's Dare. Why is it that I often get sick after a week in the sun? Could it be coming back to colder weather? Or maybe airport germs? Oh well. So I decided to keep it simple, and to choose tangles that are in my comfort zone. I think it needs a bit of something else… maybe colour? I'm going to leave it as it is because I don't have the energy right now to carry on, but maybe I'll look at it again tomorrow.
