Here is my contribution to this week's Zendala Dare. A Zendala is Zentangle Inspired Art done in mandala style. Every week, Erin at The Bright Owl posts her Zendala Dare. She also posts a template that can be downloaded to get you started. You can find her Zendala Dares, what others have created, and even participate here.
Tangles I used are: Pokeleaf, Tracery, Auraknot, Flux, Rain, Crescent Moon, and Stayned.
Stayned is my new tangle. I'm not so sure Stayned qualifies as a tangle. But below is my step out for it (step by step illustration of how to complete the tangle). I used a variation of it in my Zendala on both sides of the center section. The key is to use quick light strokes in varying lengths. Although the step out shows Stayned done with boxes, I chose to do it without the boxes on the Zendala.
My source for Stayned was the pattern made by the water stains on the wall in the middle right of the photo.
