   Erin, is the Diva's guest blogger for this week. Erin has a weekly challenge of her own on her blog The Bright Owl. She challenges us to create Zendalas. Go to her blog and join in on the fun!

    The tangles I used were, 'Mooka', 'Narwal', 'Paradox' and 'Murmylies'. I am going to try and do Erin's Zendala Dare challenge weekly, hope to see you there! 

   Last week I did do the Diva's weekly challenge with guest blogger, Sandy Hunter at Tanglebucket blog. She challenged us to focus on negative space. I actually like to have open space on my tiles, so this was fun and enjoyable for me. You gotta love that open space!!! Anyway, I had so much fun, that I did two entries.
   My computer was down last week so that is the reason of delay. I do have Instagram,  (@theartzenter) where I can easily and quickly post photos. So I did have it posted on there on time. Anyway, here are my open space tiles. 

Did this one pretty quick for a friend.
   I'm hoping that all of my computer problems will be done. This post was quite a challenge to finish. (I just wish I could get better at all of this tech stuff.)
I hope to see you all next week. Have an awesome one!! And thank you to all who make me smile with your comments. I try to respond on your blog rather than on mine, that way you don't have to revisit mine, and I get to see your beautiful work!  (((hugs))) to all!!!

Go put
into this


  1. Your zendala is so free and delicate! I love the open spaces and the use of Mooka to soften the template.

  2. New blog site? Nice! I love how you used Narwal - everybody's new fave, it seems - and gave them wonderful little helmets! It's funny, but totally beautiful at the same time! Love it!

  3. your zendala challenge tile made me smile...because it reminds me of baby astronauts, or astronaut cocoons hee hee Love that narwhal. And mooka peeking out. Very cool Fun to look at.

  4. Annette, I LOVE your zendala and the way Mooka is in it!!!! The other two are lovely as well.

    1. Thank you for your comment on my blog, I always like your comments a lot. I had forgotten to tell you that this font is indeed much better; still soft as you want it to be, be better to read.

  5. Lovely work, your zendala is really pretty!

  6. Hallo Annette,
    your Zendala ist so beautiful, i love the shading and the patterns you choose.
    Thank you so much for your nice comments on my blog :)

  7. Your response to Erin Olson's challenge is really lovely. I was thinking of trying to use Narwal, but I haven't quite mastered it. I think it turned out really well in your composition. Lots of successful 3D going on. Very nice work.

  8. Beautiful zendala! I love your pattern choices. Narwal is a current obsession of mine and I love what you did with Mooka.

  9. Fabulous! Your zendala has so much personality it should have a name. I have never used Narwal, but now I will absolutely try it. The murmylies are wonderful also. You've introduced me to 2 new (to me) tangles.

  10. Wonderful zendala with a fine contrast! I really like your choice of tangles. What a creative way to use Mooka and Murmylies in combination! I´m so glad you like my Murmylies, dear Annette!

  11. This looks amazing Annette, I like what you did here.

  12. Very gentle zendala! Refined ... Like it!

  13. Great work on the Zendala. (The others are great too.) I like your use of stippling for the shading. Is very effective but also very soft. Like the contrast you created with your bold lines. I am hoping to be able to participate in the challenges and on FB a little more regularly. My tired old eyes appreciate the change in the font color. It is easier for me to read.

  14. Fabulous Zendala! It's really just perfect! Sarah

  15. Very beautiful zendala! You found a very creative way to make those big circles in the zendala template not look so predominant. Love the one with the heart in the center, too!

  16. Beautiful! Such depth to the Narwhal.
