Good thinking Sandy, is what I say this week. I am currently COMPLETELY obsessed with Zendalas and Mandalas. I think I am drawing them in my sleep and I am so enjoying them. At first, when the challenge popped up in my news feed, I thought - hmmm....not a zendala opportunity, perhaps I'll give it miss...
And then! Guess what, my opportunity presented itself.
My tangle this week is a Zendala with a central negative space! Interestingly, I didn't enjoy it as much as a proper mandala as the best part for me is the development from the centre starting point - but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it at all. No, it was lovely to do, though I did go off the edges a tad.
Thank you Sandy! I'm sure there are going to be some really great entries this week and I do love looking at them all.
Here are some of my recent zendalas - I have been so happy with the results, done on various sizes of canvas, that I took them to be framed. I am going to hang them ALL in my bedroom! Apologies if you've seen them before - I have posted them (and some others!) on Facebook and on my other blog recently....
|This one is A4 size and I did it with my micron pens...bad idea!|
|This is a 20x20cms canvas, painted with acrylic paints and using a permanent black marker and|
a variety of gel pens to add gold and white accents. The border I did on BeFunky photo editor.
|Also done on a painted 20x20cms canvas - much more Zentangle in this. The lady who is framing|
them was very taken with this one!
And whilst out shopping, I saw this material and HAD to buy some. I now have two gorgeous cushions on my sofa and may have to buy more...next time, I'll pick a more photogenic spot to show them off...
