"Birds on a Wire", Challenge #121

What a surprise when I started my computer to write this post!!
First of all, I'd like to say "Thank you!" to all those sweet people, who are responding to this post of Linda Farmer on where she introduces my tangle pattern Orbs-la-Dee. And, of course, to Linda!
Please show me your zentangle or ZIA with Orbs-la-Dee, if you've given it a try! I'm very curious....

Since it was the first Monday of the month, the Diva's Weekly Challenge #121 was the Use My Tangle Challenge. This time we were challenged to play with Birds on a Wire, created by CZT® Mary Kissel. I decided to stay close to the original pattern, with a few tangleations and a little bit of color. I've added the angular tangles McDee and BrixBox as counterpart and I've used and Brandee, because it's fun to draw. I'm quite happy with the result:

Tangles: Birds on a Wire, Paushalöv, Knightsbridge, 
McDee, Brandee and BrixBox with Printemps
At the top right you see BrixBox, my new tangle pattern I've worked on last week. The steps will be in my next post, as soon as possible!

Thanks to:
CZT® Mary Kissel for Birds on a Wire;
CZT® Amy Broady for Paushalöv;
Rick and Maria from Zentangle® for Knightsbridge and Printemps;
CZT® Linda Farmer for the enormous resource of tangle patterns on;
CZT® Laura Harms aka the Diva for this Challenge;
You for reading this post.... and maybe even for leaving a comment!!!

Happy Tangling everyone!


  1. Je doet iets heel bijzonders met Birds on a wire Anneke! De hele tile is erg mooi.

  2. Mooie combinatie van tangles.
    Het beetje rood maakt het helemaal af.
    Ben benieuwd naar de nieuwe tangle BrixBoX, is dat de tangle links boven?
    Het doet me denken aan een theedoek met een typisch Hollands ruitpatroon.

  3. Anneke, this is just lovely. The tangles you chose to accompany Birds On A Wire compliment it perfectly and makes for a very pleasing composition. Thank you for sharing. I love it.

  4. Such a clever and beautiful tile! And your touch of red is just perfect.

  5. leuk geworden zeg! leuke zwaantjes en ik vind dat"theedoekje"erachter ook erg mooi!

  6. This is so pretty, I like the red, just the right amount of colour.

  7. Your tangleation is so striking! I love what you have done in this tile!

  8. Excellent versions and creative ideas for variation! I love the back to back version with the resulting diamonds filled in with Knightsbridge. The one on the bottom is lovely too with all the extra scrolls. I don't think I have seen that pattern before. Thanks for sharing.
