Zendala Dare #92

This is my first blog.  I have been intending to do this for a while but other things take over!  Friday 14th evening we had a power cut here in Dorset (UK) and it was still off on Saturday evening.  So we came down to my office where it was warm and light and finished setting up blogger.

Like many people, I found Zentangle by chance.  I was looking at art videos on You Tube and found Maria & Rick demonstrating Mooka - I was hooked.

Sunday was an absolutely glorious day and we went to the Purbecks. It is a World  Heitage Site and now known as Jurassic Coast. We walked along the ridge from Creech Hill to Flowers Barrow, a 2,500 year old Iron Age Hillfort, 600 feet above sea level. The views over Worbarrow Bay and Arish Mel towards Lulworth Cove were fantastic. 

Then home and time to tangle!

Work has a intervened but finally the first posting of a Zenadal Dare

Thanks to Erin who creates these wonderful designs.

  1. Welcome to the Zendala Dare. This is very flowing with some great shading. Like the subtle color.

    1. Thanks Donald. The challenge was to make it flow! It was tricky though.

    1. Thanks Chrissie. Yes I agree, there are not many in the UK. Hopefully more people will discover Zentangel soon.

  4. Although I'm no longer in the UK, I'm delighted to see another person from that part of the world discovering Zentangle - and how lovely that you and Chrissie are relatively close....
    Your Zendala is stunningly beautiful and I'm really impressed that this is your first attempt; you're a natural!
    I envy you being able to walk along the Jurassic Coast - though so glad not to be sharing your weather this winter!
    Axxx

    1. Annie. This is my first post not the first tile. I discovered Zenantangle in April last year so I have done quite a few tiles.
      The weather has been grim and wet this winter and so many people have been flooded.
