Zendala Dare #112: Layer Up!

I love Erin's Zendala Dare. Not just this week, but EVERY week! It's the last challenge of the week for me, and I usually do it on Sunday while my husband,Larry,is listening to the American Top 40 show on the radio. This week was no exception. When I saw this week's template, I thought of woven Damask ribbons with the pattern appearing in the negative form on the back. I also thought of one of Maria Robert's tiles I saw this week where the lines change from black to white. And yet another where she used white ink on a gray background done with a Fabrico pen. (My white on gray was barely visible, so I added some black to those sections. Can you see the white? It might have been good to go back and add some white on top of the black in the A-maze sections.) Thank you, Erin and Maria, for your inspiration. I couldn't have carried this one off without you!

Tangles used: Betweed, A-maze, Mist, Mooka


  1. Really nice. I love how you added a border and your contrasts are well done!

  2. lovely! I like the tangles you used, especially the background.. And the black and white Betweed gives a very nice contrast!

  3. Nice work. I like the negative form on your Betweed. Also like the tipple border around the outside. Think the parts in the gray sections look fine.

  4. Your Tipple border gives this zendala an extra soft look. I love it.

  5. Wonderful zendala! Lovely choice of tangles and I like the touch of red!

  6. Very beautiful! You have got movement to Your zendala and deepness, too.


I appreciate your comments and suggestions!
