Challenge 85: UMT-Copada

It's the 1st of the week of the month again, and time for UMT (use my tangle) at I Am The Diva's blog.  This month we get to play with Margaret Bremner's tangle, COPADA.   This is a fun little tangle that I have used a couple of times.  I love Margaret's blog, which I have learned so much from, and her art work is beyond gorgeous!  One of the things I have always loved on her blog is the mandala's she has created with the apple peeler corer as the template.  I have made quite a few now too, and got it out again to play with Copada.  It worked well with one of the blank Zendala tiles.  I really debated on whether to use color or not, but I gave it a go with two Prismacolor water color pencils.  I still have a lot to learn with using color, but it sure is fun practicing.  Thanks, Margaret & Laura!

  3. I love this--it feels almost tribal to me. An apple corer for a zendala--that's brilliant! I'm a huge purple fan and I love your coloring. Beautiful job! Now I have to go find my corer...haha!
