Twenty-four and Six

    I can't believe how fast I flew through these two dares!  The ideas were flowing and I had time and oh, how sweet that was!  I am really loving that the zendala dare doesn't post until Saturdays now.   That is perfect, Erin!  I also am now caught up with the celtic knot challenge.  I see all these awesome challenges, dares and what-nots as I roam around the art blogs, but I honestly don't think I have a moment for one more.  Unfortunately.  These three - no more.  That's what I keep telling myself.

Celtic Knot #6

Judy's instructions were to think about adding something outside the celtic knot pattern she gave us.  I took it quite literal and only drew outside the knot!    I did outline the knot, but other than that I only worked outside.  It was sort of fun, thinking outside the box knot.
Playing Outside
It is so funny.  I have admired nzeppel for ages, put it in my pattern notebook and realized it wasn't for me.  Now it seems to crop up on lots of my tangles.  I love it all of a sudden.  Amazing how our favorites change over time.

Dare #24

Grabbing Sandy Bartholomew's e-book Inspiration Book of Kells,  I went to work on dare #24.  Lots of what I used came from there.  I was rolling along and made a real bungle.  I so hate when that happens.  You can't go back - it is in ink.  You fight (in your mind) going forward.  Then you sit there thinking "do I junk it, or will anyone see it?"  Well guys, it's there.  But I really tried to hide it. 

I am sure there is some profound statement there.  But now is not the time to ponder it.  Now it's off to lesson plans, entering grades, etc. 
             Have a great week!  Happy tangling!

  1. Great tiles both tiles . The celtic knot is beautiful great that you tangled outside the flower. The zendala is very nice to. The balance between white and black is great. Love both of them

  3. Great tiles, I love the Celtic knot, the tangles you used really make it stand out. What a great idea to (k)not tangle it at all ;-)

  8. Okay you sure hid that bungle, cause this is a great zendala. And I'm with the comments above, as to wanting to try the celtic knot. You have definately made it a stronger desire with how pretty yours turned out.

  9. I think there is no bungle and your just getting a kick knowing that we are all staring at our screens looking for it! Great job, I love your choice of tangles!

  10. Seriously, folks, despite what Erin said, it's there. See those four boxes in the center? Well they are all supposed to be the same. I did one, my mind wandered a bit and for the second I colored the wrong part black! Being incredibly picky I nearly trashed it! Instead I decided to do two of each - two "wrongs" and two rights. To me it is so frustratingly obvious. I do appreciate all your lovely comments, they are sunshine to my day!

  11. these are all great, cathy, and i don't see a thing 'wrong' about your tile. i love the new ebook, although i haven't used the patterns yet, i've looked through it probably 20 times! i love both your tile - the challenges are so different this time.

  12. Glad you tried Cathy even though you do not like thinking outside the box. I like what you have done very much.
