Zendala Dare #19 and a new challenge!

     Arrgh!  My summer is slipping away!  In a few short weeks, I will be off to a mad dash!  But for now, I can enjoy the dares and challenges provided for me.  And they are so much fun!  The dare this week by Erin is awesome.  See the button for The Bright Owl and check out all the beautiful work that others have done.  This template appeals to me.  I love the boxes!  I copied several others and hope to get to doing some more.  The first one is really a mono tangle - unless we have to count the woven lines in the middle.  I love the tangle "shimono" by JJ LaBarbera.  Actually I love lots of the tangles she does.  But I chose to do shimono both large and small to cover my boxes.  I also like how they turned out 3D.  Kinda cool.
Boxed In
The next one I really didn't have a plan for.  I just wanted to see how Cindy Angiel's tangle "sprigal" would look on the boxes in color.  Then I needed something for the center of each box and something to pull them together.  So I chose fengle and paradox.  Of course, there had to be some paradox somewhere!
       I found another neat challenge this week you might want to check out.  It comes to us from Judy West at Creative Doodling.  She has shown us how to make a freestyle celtic knot then asked us to use one in a piece of art.  So here is my entry in her challenge.  Oh by the way, Diva, you have inspired me to keep at mooka - can you tell?
      Hope everyone is having a wonderful week and happy tangling!!

  1. I love the way you have made the first tile 3-D and it has turned into an Escher type picture. Great work

  5. All of these are great. I particularly love #3. I like underwater/marine life so I find it particularly endearing, but, aside from that, it's just really cool looking. =)

  12. I love all of your work here. I love how you've "zoomed in" shimono for some of the boxes in the first one. That is really cool. The 3D effect is really wonderful. I envy your Fengle and lovely colors in the second zendala. Beautiful work all around.
