Zentangle® with Tri-bee, Jalousie, and an Inchie

UMT, use my tangle, features Tri-bee from CZT Beate Winkler over at The Diva Challenge this week. Such a pretty tangle with so many options. I chose to do an aura and add some Knightsbridge.
The focus tangle for Square One was Jalousie by Stephanie Kukla. I added Hurry to this one.
And, Every Inchie Monday had a fun prompt this week: Lumberjack. Did you know that September 26 is National Lumberjack Week? Well, I didn't either. So, next year, pull out your plaid, grow a beard, and eat some pancakes!

Hubby and I were off on a camping trip (no phone or Internet service) for several days so I couldn't comment on everyone's blog. I will try to do better this week. I always enjoy reading your comments and I thank you for dropping by!

    1. Thank you, Cheryl. I had to add something so the aura would show up. Knightsbridge seemed like a good idea :)

    1. Thank you, Diane. I don't expect everyone to be able to comment every week. We all do have lives outside of the Internet that sometimes keeps us from being able to do that. I know we all understand :)

    1. Thanks, Simone. I do try to think of something different. My work is not beautiful like so many of the tanglers out there, so I try to make up for it by being different LOL!

    1. Okay, Zoe! It shows that you really read through the whole post. Of course it should have been "day" not "week" LOL! But, I wouldn't mind a whole week of pancakes. I think my birthday should be celebrated as birthweek, or maybe even birthmonth. Wouldn't that be grand?

    1. Thanks, Freebird. Somehow, I think I remember a pancake mix called "lumberjack"?

  10. What an unusual but wonderful variation of Tri-Bee! Lovely idea! Also I really like your inchie!

  11. I did NOT know that there's a whole week dedicated to Lumberjacks. I did know about pancakes as we've spent the past four days at Denny's for .breakfast. Their pancakes (and eggs and bacon and ham and..) . kept us going, though we did NOT have the Lumberjack grand slam. Have fun and enjoy the peace that comes from being disconnected for a few. Have a brilliant day! c

    1. I hadn't heard about this before either, Wendy. I think that's the fun part of doing the Inchies = looking for something a bit unusual. Well, for me that's fun anyway :)

  13. I like the way you did Knightsbridge in the petals of Tri-Bee. Very imaginative.

    1. Thanks, Donald. I actually have a daily schedule for myself for the different challenges and groups that I create for. I would be overwhelmed and I'd never get anything done otherwise LOL!

  18. Combination with knightbridge is a good idea.

  19. I really like the graphic turn Tri-Bee takes with the Knightsbridge -inspired! And while I've never tangled Jalousie, Hurry seems like the perfect companion to it.
