Zendala Dare 4, plus a new pattern
So, I'm a bit late getting this one posted, but I finally scanned my entry for Erin's Zendala Dare 4. I've had it finished for a couple of weeks now, it's just been a matter of getting it scanned. The idea this time was to have either a beach or Mexico theme. Well, I love ancient archaeology, and will always remember the trip my parents and I took to Chitzen Itza when I was in high school. So, when she said Mexico, I thought Mayan. To finish the piece in the way I wanted, I needed a pattern that in this setting would evoke thoughts of Mayan Hieroglyphics, so I put together my own pattern. For Mayo-Hiero, the idea is to put formless blobs in the center of the block.
