Laura en Adele gaven deze weel dezelfde challenge: de mooie Ratoon van Molly. Na wat oefenen is dit een mooie tangle met veel mogelijkheden, uitermate geschikt om het hart van een zendala te vormen. Dat is wat ik gedaan heb. Vervolgens werd Ratoon verbonden met mijn eigen patroontje Zanda (en aura’s), daarna volgde Beadlines, fragment K14 en tenslotte Bubbles. Voor de afwerking gebruikte ik gewone kleurpotloden.

Laura and Adele gave this week the same challenge: the lovely Ratoon of Molly. After some exercises, I like this nice, versatile tangle very much and it is a wonderful start for a zendala. That is exactly what I have done: I begun with Ratoon, connected the tangle with my own pattern Zanda (and aura’s), than followed Beadlines, fragment K14 and Bubbles. To finish I used ordinary colour pencils.

      It’s nice to get positiv feedback, thank you very much Gudrun. On my first try, I struggled a bit with Ratoon but once you “get” the pattern, it is not a difficult one and I like it very much. I saw on your contribution for Annette’s zendalamoments, you too master already this pretty tangle!
