I like this string very much and enjoyed tangling while using Starawn in the middle, followed by Sindoo. To fill the squares, I found inspiration on Scape and the border is made with Zander. Ordinary colourpencils gave the final touch.

      I’m glad you like the zendala, it is thanks to you. I loved the string immediately and like your tile very much. There are many wonderful contributions. Every tile is made with love, that is so important. Unfortunately, you know I can’t give comments on tiles published on Flikr, Instagram…

    I like everything about the tile, especially the Zander border and the centre star. I didn’t know that was a tangle! I like the shading of Tipple too!

      Zander is a beautiful tangle, especially for borders, I use it often and shading gives that tangle just that little bit more… Recently I discovered Starawn on the Internet and liked it immediately. There is always progress: a new tangle, a new technique,a new colour… as Maria and Rick say:” everything is possible, one stroke at a time”. Thank you very much for your kind comment!

    You createt a beautiful Zendala, dear Ria! The elegant combination of classical black and grey with the shining violet, blue and red in the coloring and the used graphical patterns are great! Zander as a border gives an interesting but harmonic touch. And your wonderful shading let the star come into the front and gives a wonderful depth.

      Thank you very much dear Margarete. In fact, preprinted Zendala’s are my favorite tiles to fill but I need as much time to fill them with tangles as to colour them, so I’m very glad you like this result.

      Dank je wel Annemarie, als ik het tanglewerk gedaan heb, dan leg ik meestal al mijn kleurpotloodjes naast elkaar en ik vind het heel prettig om dan combinaties te kiezen. Het is fijn om daarover een complimentje te krijgen.
