Zendala Dare

The Bright Owl

  Zendala #39


 I am new at Zentangle so I don't really have a collection of Zen Do's or Zen Don'ts yet, so I am just going to wing it this time.  I had a theme in mind when I started ... the sun and all that it nourishes.  I made the mistake of doing my tangle on the small form and found it hard to get the detail as clear as I wanted it.  When I was finished, it seemed very confusing.  It needed something to pull it together ...


So .... I tried something different.  I combined my Zentangle with my texture art that I do for PAF and this is the result.  
  Now it makes a little more sense, right?  I love this art form ... hope to be doing a lot more of it this year.

  2. I agree with ledenzer that it looks like you had fun. Paricipating in the dare and challenge is a great way to enjoy the art of Zentangle®. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

  4. I do agree with both comments above. They look great, and it is magical how adding some color can fill in the missing part! I hope we will see more of your work this year!

  5. Simply brilliant. I liked the original, and I loved it when you pulled it together with your Photo Art Friday skills. Clever, clever, clever.

  7. Sorry, Ronnie, I shouldn't have assumed everyone would know what it was. PAF is "Photo Art Friday" a wonderful photo art challenge that I participate in. It is sponsored by Pixil Dust Photo Art ... you should check it out and see if it interests you. It is great fun:)
