Zendala Dare #35 Where's My Template

It has been a long time since I've done one of the Zendala Dare's from Erin, at The Bright Owl blog.  I always love seeing the templates she comes up with and I wish I had the time to complete more of them.  This one intrigued me because it was to use a snowflake that you cut out yourself as the template.  I haven't cut out a snowflake for awhile and it sounded like fun.  See the link above for an excellent tutorial from Erin.  Once you cut out your snowflake, you trace in on your paper, add some lines (if you wish), and tangle.  I'm not really excited about how mine turned out....maybe I added too many lines to the original snowflake.  It just seems to busy and dark to me.  Maybe using colors would have been better.  None the less, it was fun and it is amazing how it doesn't look anything like the original snowflake pattern.  I will definitely try this dare again!

  1. Like the contrast created by the tangles. Like the highlighting done on the one tangle. I think it is Fife.

  2. You're a bit hard on yourself, Sue. I think it's quite pretty and I love the centre and Paradox in it.

  5. Love how this turned out. It didn't say it must look snowflake-like. Just that we use it as a guide. And I love the chunky solid feel of this. Very cool tangle choices.
