Oooh Shiny!

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #257: "Guest Post - Oooh Shiny!"

Oooh shiny in gold with tassels! Last week I enjoyed a special day with Gill from England. Gill was visiting Tasmania on holiday with her husband who is a keen fly-fisherman so he was off to the lakes and rivers for a fishing trip, fortunately Gill found my name on the CZT site on Zentangle.com and we had a very pleasant day tangling and chatting. With our gold Gelly-Roll pens and Opus tiles our time together flew by, we didn't quite finish on the day and I'm hoping Gill will send me an email of here completed creation, it was fantastically full of pizzazz. 

I truly enjoy tanglers coming to visit so if you are ever in Launceston Tasmania please pop in for a cup of tea and tangle a tile!!

As it happens today's challenge fitted in perfectly to share my oooh shiny Opus tile.

  1. Beautiful work. I always get mildly frustrated at the fact at how difficult shimmer is to capture on camera. :D

  10. There's something very Fin de Siecle about this, don't ask me why. Anyway, it looks rather grand and decorative and theatrical... Enough waffling, M, I just like it a lot.

  12. Gorgeous work! Is all that intricacy on a 3.5 x 3.5 tile? What is an Opus tile?

  13. Wonderfuk, I love how you have turned a gourdeous into a sort of squid in the bottom right hand corner.
