"UMT v. 1"- Sanibelle - Weekly Challenge #57

On the first Monday of each month, the Diva will announce a challenge which features a tangle that has been created by one of us human inhabitant of earth.

"UMT"..... "Use My Tangle" 

Laura says:  "I came up with this feature because so many of you have created fabulous patterns, but I never seem to get around to trying them.  So this week, I used a random number generator do choose the lucky winner!  And this week's challenge is: Tricia Faraone!  Nice!!  I have been eyeing up her tangle Sanibelle for quite some time.  I was happy to dive in and play with it!  To find the directions for this tangle, please follow this link to her site .  It's such a fun and delicate pattern, and i can see this finding it's way into my repertoire! "

Well, was I surprised??  OMG, yes.

This week, I spent most of my computer time surfing and viewing the Challenge entries as tanglers used Sanibelle in their Zentangle or ZIA.  Wow.  I'm overwhelmed at the creative talents of my fellow tanglers.  I've seen so many  gorgeous and lovely and beautiful works of art... and learned so many different tanglations!  

Thank you to everyone who has penned my tangle, Sanibelle - and especially appreciated are the kind words and comments.  Thank you so much.

I started this ZIA a few weeks ago and filed it away because.... I didn't like it.  Today I finished it.

ZIA - 6" sq. Bristol; Sakura Micron Black #'s 01, 08, 005; graphite shading.
Thank you for this challenge, Laura.

Thank you for visiting...
 .... and happy tangling.


  1. Tricia, your ZIA turned out wonderfully! Isn't it funny how sometimes we have to put things away for a while and come back to them, and then they morph into something fantastic like this! I love it! Thank you for sharing Sanilelle with us! I really enjoyed using it in my tangle. :)

  2. I love it, a true piece of art! I love sanibelle and I want to say thank you!

  3. Thank you for your nice comments on my blog. Congs for your tangle to be chosen by the Diva! Well done! Your work is still beautiful and unique, glad you share it with us.

  4. I would call it "Sanibell Harvest" - very unique!

  5. I love your ZIA, and I love Sanibelle! Thanks!

  6. it's pretty wild to see your tangle in action, isn't it?? Thanks for submitting it. (Working on the slideshow, it'll be up soon...)
