Seeing Stars!

   I am really seeing stars after this fun zendala dare by The Bright Owl!  This dare has been so MUCH fun!  When I first saw the template, I thought that it was interesting, but not exactly my favorite.  But the more I have played with it (and I played a lot) the more I liked it.  I grabbed the tile size and my first thought was facets for the star points.  After that it was flip through my books and see what stirred my thoughts.  I backed it on pink paper after I finished it because our school media specialist is crazy about stars and pink.  I decided to give this tile to her to say thank you for all her hard work this year and the nice things she has done for us as a staff.  Great lady!
      It was too much fun to quit.  So I cut out the circle template.  After roaming through my collection of zentangle books for inspiration, I spotted a drawing of a lotus flower.  Aha!  Perfect for the center.  Then the rest of the tile had to be oriental in theme - kogin leaves, yin yang symbols.  I love the peaceful feel of this one.

     What no color?  I started to color Lotus, then just couldn't "interrupt" that lovely black and white.  So I absolutely had to do another one, you understand.   Working my way out from the center again, I "grew" a flower garden.  I am not real comfortable with color, but I love to play with it.

        I think I shall stop now and go back to the drudgery of school work.  This time of year is full of reports to be filled out, papers to be completed, etc.  Ahh, summer is just around the corner though.  Nine more days with children and a few inservice days and I will be a lady of leisure.  Have a great week and thank you for dropping by!

  4. These are stunning! I loved the "thready" look of the first one best, until I saw the second one...and so on. You were on a creative roll and they are all beautiful.
