Zendala Dare # 97

This may be the only post that I get done this week. I was intrigued when I saw the template. I had an idea of what I wanted to do. I just was not sure exactly how to proceed or how it would turn out. I wanted to use the sections in the template as negative space. I did  accomplish that. I am generally pleased with the  results of the Zendala. The highlighting with the white pencil did not turn out as well as I would have hoped. I do not remember it being a problem before as I had used colored pencils on the Renaissance tiles before. The paper seemed to break down when I tried to do any blending. Was frustrating. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.

Tangles used: Vache (variaiton), Stripes, The rest is just line work.
Shading/highlighting done with colored pencils, Prismacolor white pencil, and 4B pencil. The colored pencils was a mixture of pencils. 

I have not had a chance to look at many of the things that have been posted on The Bright Owl. Would encourage you to take a look and check out her giveaway. You may want to try it yourself, even if you do not post.
