Zendala Dare #27

This was an interesting undertaking for me. When I first saw the template I was a little overwhelmed. I saw all the small, irregular sections and was a little baffled about what I was going to do. I knew I did not want to leave the center empty and started there and worked my way out. Once I started though it seemed like ideas just came. Before I started I had thought of some entirely different tangles to use. There were a couple that I had never done before. One is Helen Williams  twirl tangle. As I was thinking about what to do, I went to her blog and saw this posted. I really like the things that she does. I tend to do more grid tangles and her lines are so smooth and flowing. If you are not familiar with her I strongly encourage you to visit her blog and look at all the things that she does. I do not think you will be disappointed.  Click on her name to see this tangle. My use of twirl has a slight variation on the border that was due to my lack of familiarity with the tangle when I decided to make it go all the way around. Over all though I am pleased with the result. I enjoy detail work but this one took some time to finish.



Tangles used: N'zeppel, Puf, Chillon, Twirl


Now that this is done, I can move on to the Diva Challenge.

    1. Thank you. The border was fun to do but challenging as it was a pattern that I had not tried before. Hope to use it more in the future.

  5. Beautiful, Donald :) So much detail! I love seeing how you've used twirl here - and made it go in a circle - you've inspired me, as I haven't tried that. Thanks also for the link back :)
