I had the Zendala Dare #40 Template from Erin K.Olson for few days but had no idea what to do with a heptagonal Mandala. After a visit to Zentangle Inspired Art group on Yahoo I finally found my inspiration in the TOW project -Tangle of the week. As it happens, this week we were encouraged to draw Bales - which I very rarely use but being a grid a grid pattern it's perfect for my mandala
My third Mandala is a template from Jo in NZ and I have it since I began Zentangling.
A simple Moebius strip and I'm adding a new pattern - Tesali -new to me among all pattern is the ever growing tangling pool ,there are so many of them ,it's hard to fallow .Anyway I'll be posting instruction later today .
I started many drawings since Monday and nothing worked either the colours were not right or the patterns or both .After all frustration I decided to go with the tree I did last night (that would be Tuesday)
I was going through may old sketchbooks and found some strings that I started but ,due to lack of inspiration,left them waiting for better days .So, this one had only the left side (I was practising or reinventing weaving I think ), and from there I upgraded.I mixed in two new patterns Squeezzles & Smubbles from Ellen Wolters-they remind me of a Checkers pieces.
Last Sunday I was browsing through Ellen Wolters videos on YouTube and was thinking about trying out Bunzo and on Monday I see a challenge with the tangle in question ....I was going to post the drawing as it was ,white background ,but I liked the combination with the watercolour paper and here it is (it looks like a pond )
