Zendala Dare #64



 
 
The Bright Owl      Zendala Dare #64

Erin is feeling the heat in Sonoma County. We're starting to feel the heat here in N. TX also. Summer is coming into it's high point so it will be hot here probably up through September.
Consequently, Erin has set an extra challenge for us this time around. We are to pick tangles that start with the letters HEAT or HOT. The colors red, orange, and yellow immediately came to my mind so I created the first tile with a red pen, and orange souffle pen(which didn't photograph as orange) and a yellow pen. The 4 tangles I used spell HEAT:  Hourglass, Eyeballs, Accordian, and Traffic. If you don't really see the Accordian tangle it's because it's a variation and I added an extra point to accommodate that. 
Erin if it doesn't qualify just ignore that one. 
However, the second tile done on the large template: 7" from point to point does qualify.
The tangles I used spell out HOT: Hi-Cs, Orbs-la Dee, Trimonds. I really like the way this tile turned out. The Hi-Cs in the middle really started it out with a dramatic effect.

Happy Creating--

I really like the second one! The tangles used to get that 3-D look are cool! Great job!

The first one really shows HEAT in the colors.
My favorite is the second one.

Both zendalas are lovely! The first has "hot" colors. The second is my favorite.

Love the bright HOT colors in the first, but you second one caught my eye! Beautifully done, and a nice choice of contrasting tangles that gives a lot of dimension.
