Diva's Challenge #230

This week's guest blogger is Erin Olson, she's asking us to make a Zendala. A real challenge to me, I think this is my first (or second...?) one. I sketched the template she gave us on a tile and started filling it with different kinds of patterns. Made most of them up myself, apart from Jax ;-)

At the Diva blog, you can take a look at the other entries. Always a great thing to do. 

Thank you for visiting my blog, you're comments are always much appreciated!

  1. Very nice. I like how you kept those kind of triangular areas open to give this more movement!

  2. I love how your layers seem to swirl down like a whirlpool! I find myself wondering what might be behind that center circle. :)

  4. Mooi, zeker de diepte in het midden.
    We hebben allebei de cirkels met hetzelfde patroon gedaan; ik ben benieuwd of er veel meer tanglers zijn die dit deden.

  5. Mooi Ilse, en knap dat je het template op een tile met de hand hebt getekend. Ik heb dat ook gedaan maar dan op een ronde zendala tile, dat is toch makkelijker en een beetje groter, dan het vierkante tile formaat.

  6. Jax! What a great choice for the "ribbon." Great job as always.

  7. I love how light and airy your Zendala turned out. Mine ended up way too dense.

  15. For some reason it reminds me of hair tied into pigtails. The Jax ribbon really lifts it.
