Zendala Dare 9

It is the 9th week of the Zendala Dare hosted by  Erin at The Bright Owl.  I've completed several but I"m a little behind in getting them posted.  Doing a little catch up and posting a few of the others with this post.

Trying something different with this tile - leaving more open/white space.  While I understand the importance of open/white space my tendency is to fill in the whole string or tile.  I find it hard to strike the right balance and not think a tile is unfinished just because it has open spaces.  I like this tile but there is still a strong urge to pick up the pen and keep working on it.

These are all delightful. The white space you've left in this week's dare gives the eye more room to appreciate the detail in your beads. I 'specially like your dare #4 though - the "surfboard" pattern is terrific

I like the open space too. I also have trouble knowing when to stop.

Very nice. I did not leave much white space in this one, know what you mean though.

All your tiles are great. I have the same problem with white space.
