Purple Power

The Diva Challenge #103 was to raise awareness for Moebius Syndrome. I felt like I needed to stretch out when doing the Moebius Foundation graphic, so I used a Zendala tile. Drawing the logo was a little daunting, but I actually found it a bit easier to do once I just broke it down into shapes, and stopped thinking of it as a never-ending ribbon that I might need to understand. Even if it's a little cattywampus, I like it that way. I filled the background with NZeppel, and the edges became PokeLeaf. Not sure why I chose those two tangles, but after it was there it seemed to say something about growth and connectivity. Symbols are everywhere, even though we often don't know their meaning. I added purple, which I hardly ever do, but that's the color for MSAD. Read more about it via Laura's blog.
   I loved doing this tile. It seemed to go on and on, and after that I did 3 days worth of Tangle calendar entries, and then another whole tile. I had pretty 'pencilly' hands after all that shading. Fun. Thanks, Laura, for another jumpstart for me to get tangling.

  2. Carole, I love the feel of this Zendala. The "cells" of the NZeppel and the Poke Leaf border really make it seem alive.

  12. Very nice Zendala. Like the pokeroot border. I think the 'Nzeppel and shading give it a very curved dimensional look.
