Class "Zendalas"

Here are three finished mandalas from the Gallery 510 class a couple weeks ago. These were all made from the same template. SO exciting to see completely different things happen from the same starting place.
     Thanks, Cathy, Jann and Peg! I can't wait to see what else happens.


  1. I absolutely love it!

    I have to try this!. Thanks for reminding me.

  2. Are you going to post how to amke a mandala without math?

  3. What we did: Make a paper snowflake using folded paper and scissors. Trace the cut-outs onto your drawing paper, using light pencil (This is your string). With a pen, begin by connecting the shapes and corners of your marks to make new shapes to then fill in with tangles. Whatever mark you make, make it all the way around your circle. It's much easier to see how the shapes connect when you see it in person, but that's the basic idea. Most importantly, don't worry about it being perfect. Just let the lines and shapes happen. I know these look very calculated and perfect, but believe me, they just evolved as each mark was made. They are thrilling to do because you never know what you will end up with!

  4. What a fab idea. The Zendalas are truly beautiful. Do they take much longer to do than an original style Zentangled size tile? I will have to add this to my ToDo-tangles list.
    Thank you for sharing.
