I think that I'll try my hand at this template again and see if I can't get something floral to come out on the second go around.
|Cancer Awareness Zendala|
I first drew the background pattern of Bales and the edge of Ramykin and then made a photocopy of the basic design onto watercolor paper. Using watercolor pencils, I colored the ribbons to remember those I know with cancer. The Blue is for prostate cancer, pink for breast, (My God Mother died of breast cancer, my aunt battled it and I have a friend fighting now.) orange for leukemia and lavender for all cancers. The lavender is more pink that I would like but no matter. After painting the ribbons, I shaded the design.
I have one more zendala to share with you all before I end this post. I made a donation to Erin's team and received the Thank You gift of even more zendala templates. They are all really wonderful and I can't wait to get pen to paper and explore them more. One of the templates however really spoke to me and I sat down and got started right away. My final piece is really quite simple and I love it so much! I am calling it Spring Zendala. For the first time I wish that I had the coloring skills that so many of you have as the desire to add green here is almost overwhelming. I'll keep it as is though.
(I totally see now, that the spring zendala is turned the wrong way. I love however that it doesn't matter!)
