Well finally I got round to doing the zendala dare and the weekly challenge this week…
I had a very exciting weekend. We had municiple elections last weekend here AND I was a candidate! I never expected to get elected, but I did!
260 people of my town thought I would be a great town council, so starting January I’ll be there representing them.
Maybe you heard about the elections on the news! Antwerp, the biggest town in Flanders, had clash between 2 very important politicians.
I started the Diva challenge just today. Laura got her inspiration at the ‘Beads of courage‘ project. I love the idea! I think it’s amazing to see what some children have been through in their lives!
I took a piece of vintage background paper and started to draw beads on a braid. One way or another my tangles began to look like a tree and it reminded me of the tree of life of Gustave Klimt. And I think this is a very nice symbol for this challenge. I never intended it to become a tree, but it did and when I took a look I remembered the tree of Klimt.
Strange how zentangles seem to to this every time…
The zendala dare was done last Sunday evening.
When I took a look at the template I feared a kind of outcome like zendala dare 25. This template isn’t really balanced either, just like the one of dare 25.
So I decided on beforehand not to use many different tangles, to keep it simple.
When I used the aura’s it made me think of big pools of water, so I used blue as a color and the child in me couldn’t resist putting little flying fish around the pools.
