Another great Zendala dare!

   Friday morning and the anticipation begins.  I can't wait until I get to take a peek at the new zendala dare posted by The Bright Owl.   This is so much fun!  I usually print out both pages of templates and then sit and stare.  And stare.  And stare.  Then finally something (hopefully) hits me. 
  The last Diva Challenge was to use a new tangle called pea-nuckle.  I really didn't like this one so much, so I hurriedly did a tile so I could at least post.  The problem?  Now I love it!  So I knew I had to put it on this dare.  It is simply a very fun tangle to do - it's the basket weave around the outside.  Then I before I knew it my pen was making betweed the center.  That tangle crops up even when I don't ask it to.  I love it, so I have a tendency to overdo it. 
   I guess I better cap the pen and move on to fun things - like grading papers and finishing up school work.  Only one more week to go with kiddos!  I am looking forward to summer, but I really love this group. 
   Have a great week and see you next dare!

  1. I love both of these! They have such flair. Love the beads on the first one. And your pea-knuckle is amazing in that space.

    I agree about betweed. It's hard NOT to use it, it's such a great tangle.

  7. Both are great, but I think you have really done a super job with the first one. I found pea knuckle impossible but you've done it so well! And I love the simplicity of the beads...
