Two Challenges in One: Diva Challenge #239 & Zendala Dare # 112

Have not been able to participate in any of the challenges that I usually do. Decided
that it I was going to do it needed to come up with a way to use one tile for both challenges. The Diva Challenge is to use the tangle Muchin. You could also add the challenge of doing white on black. The Zendala Dare was the usual format of The Bright Owl posting a template and pretty much leaving it up to the person what they wanted to do with it. This did present a challenge as I usually do not change the template a lot. There is nothing that says you cannot change it but I always viewed it as part of the challenge was using the template. Well to complete one tile for both challenges I did not think I could accomplish that with the template that was provided. What I did was a pretty significant change. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.




Tangles used: Munchin, Tipple
Shading done with White Charcoal pencil. 

To see the original zendala template, and look at what others did, go to The Bright Owl. This is the first Zendala Dare that I have done in a while.

To see what people have done with the tangle Munchin, go to I am the Diva. I would encourage you to try either one of these challenges or if possible both of them. I am hoping to see what is posted in both challenges. I may also get lucky and get to the the focus tangle of the week on Square One.

Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!

  2. This is gorgeous! I would never have thought of using Munchin as a fill type pattern as you did. The Tipple is the perfect contrast to Munchin, and the result is really striking.

  6. This is so lovely and lacy looking, Donald. I did both challenges and decided to use Munchin in my Zendala as well. It isn't nearly as pretty as yours!
