There are many techniques to learn in Zentangle-world. Recently Rick and Maria posted a video in the Zentangle-app, demonstrating something they call Wholly Hollibaugh. It is fun to do and easy to learn. I practiced it a few times on little Bijou and here I made it on regular tile 8,9x8,9 cm:
It is like cutting wholes in a pattern to be able to watch what is going on underneath! I used Hollibaugh and Pixioze (Margaret Bremner) for this one, after watching Melinda Barlow´s video. I like to tangle in a round!
Rick and Maria explores this technique aplying it on a couple of tangles so I wanted to give Elven (Elena Hadzijaneva) a try. I also used And (Sandra Harsveld) and Printemps. I am happy the way it turned out and I did enjoy the process.
Next one is a Heart-Zendala for the Diva´s weekly challenge. I hesitated doing this. I think I have had enough of hearts by now. But I searched for a template and found one on pinterest. Since I don´t have any prestrung zendalas this was my option if I didn´t want to create a heartstring myself. It works pretty good to do it like this! Here is my zendala for the Diva:
The patterns: Tipple, Paradox, Hibered and 5C (Ina Sonnenmoser). I am glad I did this challenge after all. It was relaxing and I am satisfied with the outcome. Using a template is very much the same as using a prestrung zendala and there are a lot of them to be found on the internet!
