My first thought when I saw the template for this week's dare - very small and this will be difficult - not enough to stop me just take a little pause before diving in. Another first thought was seeing strings of beads. Anyone that knows me knows I have a love hate relationship with beads. I love them however the beads don't seem to care for me all that much. I didn't intend a bead motif that's what appeared so I went with it.

Still playing a little catch up with the dare - here is last week's entry. The added element to Dare 13 - Play with Paper - the only rule was you cannot use the official Zentangle tile or Zendala paper. For a fun read check out Erin's post on her love of all things paper here. I pushed the outer edges of the envelope in my definition of paper - I woodburned the dare on a piece of basswood.
The reason I've been so behind on completing the dares is that I also participate in an annual swap with a group of online pyrographers. All of those tiles were due July 1st so I've been spending most of my free time working on those. Also, when I read Erin's post - it's an apt description of my love affair with wood that I can burn on. I just used paper in it's hardest state for the dare. It's the first tile and I've posted a few of the tiles I did for the swap.
