Haloween in tangling world

Halloween is all over the web. Also in tangle-challenges! Halloween is quite a new  phenomena in Sweden and here it is driven by commersial sources mostly. That´s why I am a little split about the whole thing. I like party-feeling and celebrations, that is not the problem! I also like to decorate a pumpkin or two from my garden and eat something good. But some things has gone to far. You´ve all heard about clownmasks, which shouldn´t have anything to do with Halloween at all, but these clowns has exploded during this time of the year in Sweden, and that is totally a new and unpleasant thing for this year´s celebration. Noone should be afraid to take a walk or just being hanging out when it is dark outside... But I decided to not bother about these problems when I sat down doing the Diva´s challenge for the week!



This is my celebration-tile for Halloween 2016! I made it on a black zendala-tile and I had a lot of fun doing it. I haven´t worked on a zendala for some time, I don´t have many of them left so I only do that for special occasions and to make a Halloween-zendala is such an occasion! Patterns I have used: Boze (Jan Stainle), Web(Suzanne McNeill), Garlic Cloves (Jacquelien Bredenoord)and Tipple. This time
Boze are my Halloween-Bats! If they have evil minds they will be trapped in the Webs -Ha-ha-!

I too am a little less than enthusiastic about Halloween, or, to be more accurate, Trick or Treat. It's a purely commercial thing and not part of our tradition at all. However, it has become part of life and so i tolerate it, even if I cannot embrace it. We keep a basket of sweeties by the door, although no-one came around this year, so I will have to give them to the neighbours' children some other time. Your spider webs are very nice and I think your tile sums up the spooky atmosphere.

Love the look of your black tile. I find them very difficult to work with and yours is so delicate and lovely.

I love the design of your tile, your very special and delicate web is beautiful. You did right to choose a nice black Zendalatile for this challenge. (and I agree with your words about Halloween!)

Wow! this is fantastic Anita. I love how you got those highlights on the web and the detail on Boze is really great.

wonderful tile, the lines are so delicate! I totally agree on your reflection of what Halloween turned out to be. I live so much in the countrysides that I don't get in touch with all that. But a friend of mine told me that she was almost scared to death, when someone with that clownsmask suddenly was behind her. It is so spooky and not fun at all.

Beautiful tile, with great linework and shadowing/ highlighting!
We have the same 'clown-problem' in the Netherlands :-( Not funny at all.

You're right. It's sad that crazy people have to ruin everything. Your tile is really nice though.
