This week Erin added an extra challenge.  We were asked to base the challenge on The Robert Louis Stevenson novella, “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”   This is  the story of a prominent doctor who has a split personality.  His alter ego, Mr. Hyde, is a total opposite to Dr. Jekyll and is a murderer with no ethics or morals.   Erin asked us to explore the concept of opposites this week in our zendala.  The challenge this week is to split the template into two distinct sides, each the opposite in some way from the other.  We are free to do that any way our artistic muse suggests.

I will admit that I had a bit of a problem getting going on this one.  I think the reason is that part of the appeal of zendalas and/or mandalas for me is their symmetry.  The symmetry speaks to me of peace, tranquility, order…..all things that are often absent in life.  As a result, I wasn’t comfortable with total opposites in the tangles, so I chose to work with color.  This worked out well since I had just received a new set of Glittery Gelly Role Pens.  I chose green and red, opposites on the color wheel.  The only problem I ran into was that when I copied it after finishing it; the green glitter looks very very blue.  (The reason is that it is blue.  I thought it was green in the light I was working in, but I was mistaken.)   Oh, well.  Here it is:

For any of you who did black on white and white on black (which appeals to me a lot) I have a question.  How do you transfer the template onto black card stock??I know there is a white transfer paper that is used to transfer an image onto dark fabric.  Is that what you use?  I thought you had to use a transfer wheel to do that.  I’m totally stuck, and I’m sure if anyone can enlighten me it will be a “Duh” moment, lol.

Thanks for stopping by.
