For this challenge I  have chosen  the tangle ING as a spring string. I ‘ve used fresh green details for giving my tile a bit” a spring-look.

Voor deze uitdaging heb ik de tangle ING gekozen als lente string. Ik heb hier en daar frisse groene accenten gebruikt om deze tile een beetje een lente-look te geven.

      Danke schön Anja, weisst du noch am Seminar, wir sollten ING zeignen? Und jetzt dachte ich: “wieso nicht diese Muster zeignen als “string”. ING hat soviel Möglichkeiten, es war toll und überhaupt nicht schwierig. Und nachher ein kleines bisschen Grün darauf…

      Thank you Sue, I always like adding a little touch of colour in my tiles and so using a bit of green was the best option for this “Springtile”

    Hello Ria,
    thank you for your nice comment at littlesplashofcolour! Your tile is beautiful. I like the thin lines and the way you combine square shapes and round shapes, like nature does with stones, water and plants. 🙂

    Mooie frisse combinatie Ria ?

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Dank je wel Maddy. Je moet ING echt eens proberen, ziet er moeilijk uit maar is het helemaal niet en deze tangle heeft zoveel mogelijkheden, echt de moeite om te ontdekken.
      Volgende week is het zover, de workshop zit vol. Ik zie ernaar uit…

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Sandra. I like to use colours in my tiles but it is still a bit a try out. I have to learn much more, there are so many possibilities but I have time to learn, every day a little bit more. I’m glad you like my tile.

    Ria this looks beautiful …

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Reena, welcome on the Diva’s site. I was thinking about that ING that we have made on the seminar. Why not using this tangle as a string and so I did. I like ING and there are so many opportunities to draw this tangle.
      I saw again your spectacular poema on the newsletter and I like the picture of us all. I will never forget those wonderful days, but I’m also glad to be back home.
      Wish you a happy tangletime!!!

    I really like your spring string response to the Diva challenge. I’ve thought about using ING as a string, but have never done it. It works very well here and you picked the perfect green for the spring theme.

    Thanks for your Scottish reminiscences on my blog. What you said helps me look forward to our upcoming trip—rain and all.

      Thank you Suzanne. The Diva’s site is a nice way to get in contact with people from all over the world. I’m happy that I’m joining this big “Zentangleloversfamily”.
      And again: Scotland is so beautiful, so quiet and peacefully, I’m looking forward to read about your experiences on your blog!
