Diva Challenge #335: "UMT - Tint by Henrika Bratz. CZT"

This week's challenge is a Use my Tangle (UMT) challenge.  It uses the Tangle Tint by Henrika Bratz.  I was not famillar with this tangle but I like it because it uses simple strokes and you can do a lot to embellish it.  I needed some simple tangling so it fit really well for me.  Won't go into a lot of detail but life has been a little more stressful lately for a variety of reasons.  I started the last two challenges and never completed the tiles.  One all I got done was the string. Another, I got about a third done and never got back to it. I finished this tile in a relatively short time.  Did not try to do a lot and kept everything simple. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.

Tangles used: Tint, Florz
Shading done with graphite pencil

I have not looked at anything other than the Diva's example on her blog.  I would encourage you, if you have not all ready, to go and look at the pieces submitted. There are numerous pieces of astounding art.

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

Go Tangle !!


  1. Donald, I know exactly what you mean. Life has been that way for me too. I got this one done, but not sure how. Ugh! Anyway, I really like how your tile turned out. Very simple but really nice. Things will get better, I'm sure of it! :-)

  2. I like your tile! Some days are like that... life gets in the way. Great thing about Zentangle.... it's always waiting for us to pick it back up!💕

  3. It's strange that I did not see this tangle as "simple" at all, Donald. I guess everyone's brain is wired differently, LOL! Yours looks really nice, and I hope life starts treating you better very soon!

  4. I do like your tile; it seems that eyes are looking at me :-) I hope tangling can help you in relaxing and reducing the stress!!!

    1. Thanks. Did not even think about the ones in the center looking like eyes. Almost a little cross eyed.
