The Bright Owl Challenge #101




The Bright Owl   Challenge #101

Erin is back at The Bright Owl Challenge. She persevered all through her nursing school and general living so I can understand that when she finished nursing school she needed a break. However, I'm glad she's back. She always provides us with a template in 3 sizes.
I'm going to enter the 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 tile in the challenge, but I just had to post all three of my attempts here. Not only are my three templates different, but if you click on the link above you will be amazed at all the other artists beautiful tiles they entered. I'm am still amazed at how many variations can be achieved with patterns and templates.
I'm sure you will notice the wonky black spiky circle toward the middle. When I first learned about Zentangle one of the things that drew me to it was the statement Rick and Maria made about there were no mistakes, no rulers, no erasers, just pen to paper. So you will always be able to find some flaws in my art no matter what medium I'm using, but it's so much more noticeable in black and white.
It's been awhile since I read Erin's rules so I'm not sure of the deadline, click over and check things out. Even if you just print out the templates and do them for your own pleasure that will make you creatively happy.

Happy Creating,
BeverlyG

That is a lot of work. I like all of them but a little partial to the first. The way you used Shattuck and filled in the bottom makes it look a lot like Arc Flower and Mumsy. Also like the spikes in the second one.

You did great work on all three zendalas. The middle one has such depth and the last one is whimsical and lively.

Wow, so much beautiful zendala's and all from one and the same template. The last one is my favorite, it looks a bit like lace.
