Zentangle Challenge UMT - Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam

Happy New Year! It's so wonderful to look forward to the Diva Challenge every Monday! (www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca) Thank you so much Laura! The first challenge each month is a UMT (Use My Tangle), and this month it's the tangle Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam. This is a tangle I used a few times when I first saw it, but then forgot about it - one of the reasons I love these challenges. So, my tile is busier than what I've been doing lately and I had intended to put Orbs-la-Dee in the centre but made a "mistake" when starting it - and that's how 'Nzeppel happened. I just love the way Zentangle tiles can end up so very different than what was envisioned… This is one of those tiles that I wish I had taken a before shading picture… I almost tore it up at that point! I don't love this one but it turned out better than I thought it was working toward. And I apologize that I don't comment on every post. I don't post comments on photo's taken on flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, and sometimes when there is a blog post with lots of responses to many challenges. I won't comment if I have to sign up for or or sign into something else - it's partly time management.

Wonderful tile - I love it :-)

Lovely composition. I completely agree that shading is what makes Orbs-la-Dee special. We want the orbs to pop above the surface as they do here. Happy New Year.

I like it, how the sturdy Orbs-la-Dee contrasts with the other tangles!

I do like your tile, Sue. Great, that we had the same experience with a tile that 'just happened':-)

The Orbs-la-Dee pairs very nicely with 'Nzeppel to make a really nice tile!

Wonderful tile! ´Nzeppel fits so well to Orbs-la-Dee! By the way ... I can´t see no mistakes.

I really liked reading how this tile came together! Definitely a happy accident! Beautiful! Such fine lines and the shading is wonderful!
