Diva Challenge 181

Trying to get sorted earlier this week...

The Diva has spent a wonderful weekend on, near and in the water and this inspired the challenge for this week. Water!
It is a great inspirer and I suspect I may be inspired to do another one as the week continues...there really are so many options. Thanks Laura!

I used Agua, Tipple, Scallops, Verve, Angel Fish and oh gosh, the ferny one whose name I don't know...can anyone help me?? I'm afraid I scanned it in at a bit of an angle...



Yes, there's definitely another watery one making waves in my head right now....Can't wait to see what everyone else does with this one!! Axxx

  7. This is really fabulous! Would love to escape to the beach right now, but I'll be content looking at your great tile because it reminds me so much of the ocean!

    Happy tangling,

  15. if I was at the beach, and exploring tidal pools, and found one packed with interesting delightful creatures, I would make a tangle like this! It's just wonderful...so many "creatures", so much flora and fauna hahaha!

  17. Nice job. I agree that it is like looking through a window at a wonderful underwater scene. Like all the tangles that you used to depict this and the sense of movement. Half expected to see little fish swim by at any second.
