Zendala Dare #49

The Bright Owl     Zendala Dare #49

My circle ended up being a 4 1/2" circle and I'm so bad about not keeping up with the names of the tangles I'm using. I've got about 12 different Zentangle books by various artists. After I look the template over for a bit, I start thumbing through the books, choose one tangle at a time, start tangling then forget to jot down the name of each tangle. Then, like the peaks under the outside boxes those are just fill in lines that I thought would look good in that spot. I hope that's kosher when you're tangling. 
Erin at The Bright Owl continues to challenge us with such interesting templates even with her busy life schedule. Here's a big hug to Erin for giving us such a fun place to play and meet other tanglers. 
If you've never tangled before it's very addicting, hence a second version of Zendala #49. I usually print 2 templates in case I mess up or don't like the first one I'm working on. I couldn't sleep last night so I started tangling on this second template. I liked it right up to the point where a wild hair came over me and I tried to make the center look like a Spirelli. Since I'm not the do over girl I just shaded and considered it finished and in the spirit of not letting anything go to waste I decided to post it here but not enter it. 

Now off to the next challenge, oops, laundry first--

Happy Creating--

I like both your zentangled mandalas. And I think the Spirelli center looks good.

Thanks for stopping by one of my blogs recently. I'm sorry to be so late coming here to respond.
