First is the Diva's Challenge #157, which is to use the tangle "Charlie" in a tile. For those of you new to this blog, The Diva posts a challenge every week (for 3 years now!), and artists post their responses. It's so fun and interesting to see how people respond to the prompt in so many different ways.
Bright Owl. I'm posting them along with the templates, since I'm doing several at once. Erin at the Bright Owl provides a mandala template every week for followers to fill with tangles (Zentangle patterns). Again, the myriad of responses is just amazing.
Zendala Dare 93 is called snowflake surprise, and Erin asked us to make it look like a snowflake. Although I have LOTS of inspiration outside, I'm not sure it really looks like a snowflake, but I do like it anyway.

Next is Zendala Dare 92, which was a simpler template. Nevertheless, I managed to make so complicated that I got all mixed up! Hey, that's half the fun of it, right?

Finally is Zendala Dare 91. I used a lot more tangles than I normally do, which gives it a less refined, more fun and whimsical look.

A special thanks to these two wonderful ladies who have built such a special community of people who love doing zentangles!
