Diva Challenge #193 "Trio"

This week's challenge is from guest Diva Holly Atwater is to use three tangle patterns:- Huggins, Trio and XYP.
I've been away and working in my small watercolour book, so decided to work in that for the challenge. I did the zentangle in the traditional manner first, then used watercolour pencils for the colour.



Our next swap on Facebook is to represent "Winter". At first I found this difficult, then started to look at images of bare trees, which became my inspiration. I created some watercolour backgrounds, some with luminous effect and went from there. Below is a selection of some of them.



Wondering what to do with old ZIAs, decided to use them for Christmas cards!



In Australia Spring continues to bless us with colour and more colour! I am continually amazed at the beauty of flowers. Here I have one of my rose bushes and some ground cover which, when the sun is directly on it, seems to glow with quite a brilliance.



I hope I have brought you some colour and inspiration today!

  2. Wow! Love the color version and great cards! Someone is going to be very pleased to get them in the mail. I sighed at the roses... My poor bushes have been tipped into the ground for the winter. I can almost smell them.

  10. Both tiles look great. The US is currently in the throws of its first cold snap. Our colors are the reds and golds. Like the way that you used these tangles in your tile.

  11. Wow. Color really makes a difference. In a day that feels a lot like winter here in Philadelphia in the northeastern US, the color actually lifted my spirits---along with those beautiful flowers. Thanks for sharing them.
