Zendala Dare #10

To participate or view other entries for the Zendala Dares visit The Bright Owl

What do you know, I'm getting this week's dare posted before the last minute and I'm finally caught up with completing past dares.  While I do enjoy working on the Zendalas, the process is different from a standard Zentangle.   The symmetry of the Zendala templates presents a different challenge.  Instead of just winging it with selecting patterns as I would with a standard tile, I've completed the first 10 staying true to a symmetry with the patterns.  Seems to require a bit more thinking and planning.  That's not a bad thing just different.  There are no rules so I could go free form just have not allowed myself to do that yet.  It's interesting that I would notice and maybe find this a bit "nudgy" since I very much like balance and symmetry.  Just one of the ways that Zentangle has changed things up for me?

Wonderful zendalas! I especially like #6, but they're all really lovely.

The process is really different than a regular zentangle. I really like doing both now, even though I wasn't too sure about the zendalas at first. They do require more planning, but once you start, there's a lot of repetition, which can be very relaxing.
