Zendala Dare #72 - Through thick and thin

This week's dare had the added challenge of using either an 005 or 08 micron for the entire zendala. This was an easy choice as I do not  have an 08. The largest I have is an 05. It actually would have been a more difficult challenge for me as I do use the 005 on a fairly regular basis. Would be interesting to see what I would have come up with with the larger nib. Was not interested enough however to go out and purchase an 08 just for this challenge. I usually do use one of the larger nibs for fill so that was a challenge to fill with the 005. Also had a little trouble with Midoosa. I did fairly well with math in school, but apparently I am not as good at counting. When I started I thought I counted 10 points. Since it was an even number thought it would be a good opportunity to try this tangle in the middle. Well it was not too far in when I realized that there were not an even number of points. Not being one to just discard a tile I persevered. Oh well. Other than this I was generally pleased with the outcome of this. I hope you enjoy it.

Tangles used: Midoosa, Genoa, Munchin, Trimonds, & Zander.

If you have not all ready done so would encourage you to go to The Bright Owl to see what others have submitted. There are always some great pieces. Check back often as things are posted throughout the week.

  1. I like your tile especially the Trimonds! Midoosa looks good, too. You can't tell theres a mistake at all!
