This week’s Zendala Dare #93 is suppose to represent a Snowfake, I tried to keep my interpretation as light and airy as possible.
Just joking…. I’m not literally “on a roll,” I’m just been keeping very busy Zentangling. Below is this week’s Zendala Dare from The Bright Owl. I did not alter the original template, so I’m not posting it. You might enjoy checking out the other entries. It’s amazing how each entry is unique despite using the same template. That is what makes doing the Zendala Dare each week so much fun.
I used a Micron .005 pen to outline the template and draw the tangles. Fine-line pens and colored pencils added the color. I shaded with a graphite pencil. I do hope you’ll take a minute and leave a comment. Thanks so much for viewing.
On this Sunday afternoon, from the template offered by Erin, at The Bright Owl, I drew this Zendala Dare with Micron .01 pen on white card stock (8.5″ x 8.5″). It’s colored with fine line permanent markers and shaded with graphite pencil. A new tangle, created by Cheryl at Artful Creations, called “Boho,” is used on outer rim. Be sure to check out the other beautiful Zendala Dares at Erin blog, The Bright Owl. Thanks so much for stopping by. I do hope you have time to leave a comment.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”
— Melody Beattie
This week’s Zendala Dare is the template which inspired these hearts. The challenge was to show what we are grateful for. I’ve featured my daughter-in-law (left), my daughter (right), my dog and my kitten. All of them bring me joy and love and I’m very grateful to have them in my life. Stop by Erin’s blog, The Bright Owl, to see the original template; and check out some of the other great renditions of this template. Thanks for viewing. Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”

Wow! The first day of 2014. I’m looking forward to the new year and hoping it holds good things for me. I guess everyone feels that way. One never knows what the future holds but it’s always good to be optimistic and hope for the best.
I’ve been working on lots and lots of bookmarks for an upcoming Swap with the Yahoo group “Zentangle Artist Trading Card Swap.” They are posted on my Flicker page (http://www.flickr.com/photos/80288200@N03/ ) and also on the group page. I would like to add them to my blog but I just seem to run out of time. So, stop by and check them out and leave a comment.
I started this Zendala Dare last night and worked on it most of today. It’s drawn on 8.5 x 8.5 beige card stock with Micron .01 and .005 pens. I used metallic gel pens and Prismacolor pencils to color it.
