Having breakfast with a fellow CZT yesterday, she asked me if I have a tendency to over-work or under-work my tiles. I try to not do either, but if I had to chose, I definitely tip the scales towards to side of over-work side. I like things detailed and I like exploring to see where the tangles will lead me. I try not to over-think, but I do like to have lots of interesting things to look at. With that I present you Renaissance Zendalas #5, 6, and 7.
This one was “finished” at least half a dozen times, but I kept wanting to add “one more thing.” I still want to add some color to the striped cones toward the edges, but I am restraining myself 🙂
This one I started while waiting for The Fault in Our Stars world premiers. I thought it was appropriate to decorate it with strands of beads in honor of Artoo for this week’s Diva challenge. On this one, I think I over-worked it. Should have stopped before that last strand of tiny black beads.
For an experiment, I decided to use the same string and keep it mindfully simple. So, what do you think? Is it finished? I see half a dozen things I want to do to this. Is in under-worked?
