Diva Challenge #133: Tipple - Love it or hate it?"

This was a great challenge. I use Tipple a lot. It is such a relaxing tangle and it is a great fill and embellishment. In deciding what I wanted to do with this challenge I chose to use other tangles that I see as using very simple strokes. Part of this is that my mind is not as creative as someone like Shelly Beauch. I admit I saw what she did as I get a feed on her blog. Her tipple wave is unique and a great piece of art. If you have not been to her blog, would encourage you to do so and see what she does. But I digress. It so happens that most of the tangles I used are also some of my favorites. The only one that I have not used a lot is Hi-Cs. To me these tangles represent some of the basics of Zentangle® in that you use simple structured strokes to create beautiful patterns. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.



Tangles used: Tipple, Hibred Betweed, Hi-Cs, and Shattuck

I mentioned Shelly Beauch's Tipple creation, but I did not look at a lot of the others before I completed mine. I try not to unless I am really struggling as I do not want to be overly influenced by what others have done.  Now I plan on going to I am the Diva and enjoy what others have done. Would encourage you to also.

Thank for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!

    1. Not hours. I really am not sure how long it took as I worked on it in small time periods over a couple of days.

    1. Thanks. What looks like sepia is actually the result of taking the picture without a flash in a little bit lower light.
