T_H_A_N_K_S.......... ZENDALA

Weekly Challenge #115
with Erin

   I just fell in love with this week's template! Right away I was going to use Mooka and brake up those bumps on the outer perimeter,.....but wait,.............Erin threw us for a loop and made the challenge an even bigger challenge!!!!!!!! WHAT????? Hahaha, just kidding'. But I do have to say, I was a little stumped this week. Thank goodness for Linda Farmer's,! Erin asked us to not only use her template, but to use tangles that began using the letters in T_H_A_N_K_S.
   So I used TanglePatterns to look up these lettered tangles. Linda's website is like using the dictionary but it's for tangles. If you haven't visited her site, I strongly recommend it because it is such a fabulous resource in the tangle community.
   The tangles I chose were Twile (also known as Stoic), Hypnotic, Agua, Narwal, Kelp, and Showgirl.
Here it is without color. Click on image to enlarge.

I used Recollections Signature Especial markers for the color. They have a really fine tip on one end and a brush tip (which I absolutely love) on the other. (They might be just a Michael's brand????)
  If you are a Zentangle junkie and would love to challenge yourself, with yet another challenge, then you should try out the Zendala Dares. I once was afraid of zendalas but now I look forward to see what Erin puts in front of us every week. So much enjoyment!!
   Have an awesome weekend and I will see you 'round the corner!



  1. Wow, Annette, you did such a wonderful thing with this week's template. It is so very elegant and festive! Have a great weekend.

  2. Thank for your nice comment, Annette. It's funny we have the same idea with Narwal:-) Your Zendala is so beautiful, I love the colours you used.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous zendala! Wonderful colours and choice of tangles! Is it telepathy? I also used Showgirl in the centre of my zendala!
    Have a wonderful weekend!
    Hugs, Annette

  4. So beautiful - In black and white or in color. Your colors are beautiful. I, too, thought of Narwal for those peaks. But, alas, I have not mastered that tangle yet - So I didn't use it. You are an inspiration! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Funny as my first thought for the outer parts was Mooka! Yours is delightful and I just love the addition coloring, especially the blending. That Narwal looks yummy, like a delicious ice cream cone!

  6. I am stoked by your tile! The composition of tangles is so clever and elegant! Love this tile!
    I used "Kozy" in the center, it is a little similar to your "Showgirl" I love it to learn so many things about several tangles - this is so inspiring!

  7. WOW! Elegant and lovely colours! Nicely done!

  8. Very elegant and lacy. Lovely colors. Beautiful.

  9. This is gorgeous! I had to laugh when I read your description of your creative process this week. My wheels were spinning until I saw Erin's additional challenge! You have created a beautiful zendala with your interesting tangle choices and colors. I am especially happy to see Agua. I think it's so pretty but never quite know where to put it! Thanks for sharing with us!

  10. This is so gorgeous, i Love the colors and the patterns you choose... So beautiful....
    Greetings Ulrike
