Zendala Dare 57 and more Tangle A Day
Zendala Dare 57 from Erin at The Bright Owl. I decided to do the whole thing with just one stroke, the same strokes that Erin uses in a pattern she calls Socc. I do this so much, I am lucky there isn't a tax on it. First is the template for the week and then my take on it. I used mostly the lines from the original mandala, only needing to add a few extra lines to make some of the more rectangular shapes triangular. I believe Socc begins with all rectangles since by mathematical definition squares are a subgroup rectangles. Erin is using a guest host this week, a fellow CZT Genevieve Crabe. Genevieve has an amazing blog with the Weekly Roundup featuring all kinds of good links for tangles and such. She also is the creator of mandala stencils and tangle organizers. The last photo is a page from one of the Tangle A Day calendars I am working on. I was a year behind, so to speak, when I started, so I am trying to do two in one year. I am up to May in one and March in the other. I meant to post this the other day when I posted other calendar pages but this one mysteriously got lost in the shuffle. You can find out more about Carole's calendars here. It has been a while since I completed the calendar page, but I am thinking the floating hearts may have been inspired by something someone else did. I can't remember who now. If anyone recognizes it, let me know. I like to give credit where credit is due.
