Dare #15This week's dare from Erin over at The Bright Owl was a tough one. All those boxes stumped me for a few rounds. I couldn't decide how to approach them. So I did my usual sit and stare. For a bit longer than usual. I didn't even touch it all of Friday. I did look at it - a lot.
I really liked the first one I did. Well, honestly I liked them both. But on the second one, I was almost done and got involved in a conversation with my brother while I was working and boom! There it was. A glaring mistake. Why is it when there is a mistake it screams "Notice me or else!" I hate that. It sort of ruined my feelings on the zendala, but here it is anyway. Hold your ears, because it does scream rather loudly.
Now for the Diva's challenge. We were asked to use Mi2. I love the way this tangle looks, but can't seem to control it. I did find that Rick Robert's steps using a dot rather than a seed to begin was somewhat easier. Not a lot, mind you. So for my tile I had to keep Mi2 in a very basic format - no spectacular flourishes or major creativity like you can see if you check out Diva's site and the other entries. I tried to dress it up a bit by inking the edges, using a sepia pen and a brown pencil, but honestly it still remains rather . . . basic.
