Zendala Dare #13This week the dare from Erin was to play with paper and move out of our comfort zone and not use white paper. See the challenge here Dare #13
I did this in 2 steps, first I tried the zendala on white paper and once I was happy that it worked I redid it on coloured paper.
Here is my white attempt using Rick and Maria's new tangle pattern Auraknot, this is a really fun pattern.

Here is the attempt on coloured paper, this is checked background paper. I struggled to find paper without too much of a pattern on it. Also When I came to shade it I used pencil which made it look muddy and grey so I rubbed that out and ended up shading with a coloured pencil. I found this tricky as it doesn't smudge. I am not sure if I like the finished article as much as the version on white paper as it disappears into the paper a bit too much. Perhaps I should have used a thicker nibed pen rather than the 0.1 micron.
