Een tijdje geleden heb ik een kaart gemaakt met gedroogde bloemen waarrond Tripoli werd getekend. Voor deze challenge heb ik eigenlijk iets soortgelijks gemaakt: een Zia met  gedroogde Hortensiabloemetjes  en een mix van Tripoli en Maryhill. Ik heb getekend of licht bruin papier met een blauwe pen en blauwe en paarse kleurpotloden. Dit was voor mij een heel ontspannende challenge!

A while ago, I have made a card with dried flowers, surrounded by a variation on Tripoli. For this challenge, I have chosen for the same idea: a Zia with dried Hydrageaflowers and a mix of Tripoli and Maryhill.  I have used light tan paper and coloured pens and pencils (blue/purple)This was for me a very relaxed challenge!

      You can make such a compostion with all flowers and all tangles but I’m fond of Tripoli because you can “put in” everything you want. I’m glad you like this result and thank you very much for your kind comment. I hope to “see” you soon on other challenges, let us enjoy the summer, finally we also have in Belgium also real sunny days and the weatherforecast promises us more.

    Your wonderful combination of dryed flowers and the interesting variation of Merryhill in such a soft coloring make a very beautiful ZIA-card, Ria!

      Thank you Joyce, I’m glad you like this composition. Basicly, it is very easy to do and possible with different tangles, important is that the flowers are really dry.

    Just lovely! I have been thinking about mixing dried flowers with tangles. I am so happy to see that it is possible for it to work out well.

      Thank you Sharlie, I’m glad you like this Zia. There are different flowers and tangles you can use together. Last year, I also made a composition of Spoken and the small blue Forget-me-not on a Zendalatile. When you go to and than to Impression, you will see the result.
      On this tile, I “worked” a bit on the flowers too (maybe to much) in fact, it is not necessary. I wish you succes and fun and hope to “meet” you later on other challenges.

      Thank you Trudi, I’m glad you like this (maybe last) challenge of Joey.I’m fond of Tripoli, just because you can fill this tangle with everything you want and it is a very relaxing one to draw.
      I like your pretty Zendala with lovely colours and beautiful drawn tangles, especially Maryhill.
      Wish you all the best for the summer and hope to “find” you back on other challenges.
