Zendala Dare #43

I went to my group, Glentanglers, yesterday. I am amazed at how beautiful the work these women do is. I almost cringe when I have to put my work down next to theirs. I feel like mine looks like a child's. Maybe it is because I am a beginner? Maybe it is because I still work full time and just don't have the time to be more careful? Or, maybe it is just my "style" and I should accept it?

My second challenge from The Bright Owl. These are really fun to do.
Thanks for looking.


  1. A beginner or not, I think it's lovely!!!! You can be proud of yourself. I know what you mean, thinking that everything from others is (of course) better than what you make. I had that all my life until .... I met Zentangle.
    So, let's just read the words from Erin on her blog and 'feel like an artist!!!!

  2. Thanks Anne. I think we are all too critical of ourselves, in everything, not just art. Tangling is a great way to express oneself without judgement. I appreciate your reminder of that.

  3. Beautiful work. I think you are a talented artist.

  4. Nicely done, and artistically put together! I think you've done a great job - especially using lots of different tangles that have angles, and curves and fitting them into the spaces - then really good shading! Very much art!

  5. Nice job on this template. Sometimes have to keep reminding ourselves that it is about the process. The end result will take care of itself.
