Zendala Dare #83: Owls and Moscow

In this week's Zendala Dare, Erin added to the challenge by asking that each zendala have something that is reminiscent of winter. I really struggled with the template and winter. Finally, the thought of Snowy Owls for The Bright Owl Dare seemed to work with the template.  Here is my version:

Then I started to see in the template the domes of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow.  It seems that every picture of I have ever seen of the cathedral was taken during the winter. So I did this version:

Here is a picture of St Basil's.

Zendala Dare #80

Here are my two attempts for Zendala Dare #80. In the first one I used Jean Chaney's Chaz, Paisley Passion by S. Bartholomew, and Cruffle by S. Hunter. In the second zendala I used Purk and Zenplosion Folds.

Diva Challenge with Cruze

This week the Diva's challenge was to use Caren Mlot's great tangle "Cruze." This is one of the new Renaissance tiles; it is tan and I used a brown Micron. I shaded with a white charcoal pencil and the soapstone. This is my first attempt at a tan tile.

Zendala Dare for Rick and Maria

 Erin's Bright Owl Zendala Dare to start off November, the month of the Thanksgiving holiday, is to draw a Zendala in thankful appreciation of Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, the creators of Zentangle. My heart is full of gratitude to Rick and Maria for the gift of Zentangle. I have put the initials "R" and "M" into some of the petal-like shapes on the outside ring in appreciation of these two generous people. Can you see them?
