From your hostess, Ellen Gozeling:
Day 35: combining organic and geometric tangles in a Zendala.Well, I have used both. And I know I love geometric patterns, as you can see, I used just a small piece of the string for it.And for some reason I had to let a big part of the mandala string without a pattern. Just put some shading in it and I does work for me.Again the coloring was fun. Did 2 different ones and feel like they have transformed the original in different ways. I can still tell it's the same drawing, but the feeling is different. Hope you know what I mean.Wising you all a great day and look forward to seeing all you work. Cris, again, and I will keep telling you: Amazing job putting the blog on every time!Ellen
Thank you, Ellen. Beautiful work. Love your echoism. I never would have thought to use it there. It really is a nice touch.
Also thanks to Ellen for sending me a scan of the book so I could participate. As you can see, you almost wouldn't even know we started with the same string! I think mine would look better with some color, but I didn't start it until late and I am tired. Maybe later…
That is it for Day 35. I tried to get Birdie to tangle one for us, but she had other priorities. I did get this late entry for Day 34 from Marty Deckel:
I used colored pencils on my tile and am not very happy with it...too many colors and part of the problem was the paper i used...afraid to put any heavy watercolor paper, or anything other than what it calls for, in my home printer and jam it up! I found these quite challenging because they had to be enlarged, copied, then copied again. I will try the techniques on regular tiles at some point, though.Loved everyones work for this lesson!!!!!
Lovely work, as usual. I agree with Marty about loving everyone's Zendalas. What is it about a Zendala that makes it turn out so beautiful? Any ideas?
