Zendala Dare #22 – Monodala


Ok when I saw the Zendala Dare #22 I got a little excited, this dare merged two things I have grown to love, Zendalas and Monotangles. I had to resist the urge to do my favorite Tangle, and my go to tangle since I attended CZT-9 which is Indy-Rella. So I let chaos reign and decided to go completely random. I went to Tanglepatterns.com and had excel choose a random number for me from 1 to 26 [=ROUNDUP(RAND()*(26-1)+1,0)] the result was 23, the letter V. The letter V has nine patterns currently so I had Excel choose another number for me [=ROUNDUP(RAND()*(9-1)+1,0)]the result this time was 5, which meant Verve was my pattern.
            This was a mixed blessing, I happy as it was a pattern I had not used before, but I was really wanted something I could do more Tangleation of. Though it was a pattern I was not very familiar with I am very happy with the outcome. It almost reminds me of a curvy Rick’s Paradox.
            Hope you enjoy this.

OK - I was walking the dog tonight, and it hit me that I should do a second Monodala.... I felt that I should attempt it in Auoraknot, so here is the second Monodala.

  5. Great work, and glad to hear I am not the only one who tries out the random tangle generator, although I get my kids to randomly select the numbers for me. It makes for some interesting works.

  10. Both of your tangles are beautifully executed! I love them both - hard to pick one as a favorite, so I'd have to choose both.

  11. Love to hear how you arrived at using Verve - and well done too! But I really like your use of Auraknot in this zendala pattern.

  12. Both are wonderful...amazing that they are "only" lines, but can express so much, soft chaos, hard order. Great job!

  14. I really like your tangles, especially the first! I'm beginning to think Verve is my favourite tangle and, seeing how flowing and alive it looks on your Monodala, I know why.

  15. Both of your monodalas are lovely. Verve is one of my favorite tangles to look at, but I have trouble doing it; haven't figured out why. And your auraknot is also lovely.
