Zendala Dare #5 with the Bright Owl



It is hard to believe it’s already the 5th week of Erin’s Zendala Dare! This is the pattern she gave us this week. It’s really very simple (snicker, snicker!) Erin gives us a pattern and challenges us to fill it with various tangles. Then we get to share our work through her blog and we can visit everyone else’s page and learn from their work. The hard part for me is deciding which tangles to use. Sometimes it just comes to mind – like last weeks’ surboards. Sometimes it’s a bit of struggle for me. I’m sure that is what Erin has in mind with this dare – to challenge us, to push us, and to help us learn. So, with that said, here is my finished zendala for this week :).

I am really interested in steampunk design right now – for whatever reason – and I knew I wanted to use that this week. It was a lot of fun! I used: spinner, metal plate, assemblies, deha, and two patterns that I just made up – geerz and barz. For the color I used Derwent Inktense Pencils with a water brush.

You can find the Zendala Dare here. Check out everyone’s zendalas for the week and maybe you’d like to post one of your own! We’d all love to see you there!

  1. Very, very cool zendala! I wasn't familiar with steampunk design until you commented that one of my zendalas had a steampunk look, so of course I had to look it up. This is a great design. It's amazing the different looks we all get from the same template.

    • i agree! everyone's zendalas are so different. sometimes it's hard to realize we all started at the same place and used the same template 🙂

  2. Very cool! Love the depth of color, and the very mechanical feel of all the tangles. Great detail!

    • thank you so much, sue! sorry, i didn't know a lot about comment etiquette back in may 🙁 i do appreciate you leaving me such a wonderful comment!

  3. Wow, I love this Steampunk style. I have seen it lots in cardmaking before but not in Tangles. I will have to give this a go, thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Love the steampunk! Very clever way to combine two different art styles and come up with something so dynamic. Great work!

  5. Your Zendala rocks! I love how you got a very "rusted" look on your steam punk interpretation.
