Diva Challenge: No Strings Attached

 
This week's Diva Challenge was to create a tangle without putting down a string first. Fortuitously, I worked on this all weekend and it started without a string.  I did a few spiral designs, then added starfish and sand dollars and filled the background in with the rock and seashell pattern. It's  called 'Cockles and Mussels' and was created by the fabulous Margaret Bremner.  It is one of my go-to designs.

I suppose it's kind of a cheat to submit something you did 3 days BEFORE you knew what the challenge would be, but so be it. Maybe I have precognitive abilities (or ESPN as my 5 year old nephew used to say)! Whoa! Yet another superpower!

 Thanks for another wonderful challenge, Diva!

That's beautiful! Through your shading, those sea beauties appear to be at different depth. BTW, love your slip of keyboard in Cockles&MusCLes :D

Blush! Thanks for the catch RitaN. Can't imagine WHERE my mind must have been! :-)

Don't think it matters when you did it unless you were always pulling things out from years ago. Glad you decided to post this. Like all the tangles in the background.

Love the colors and the theme, and don't think it should matter when you made it as long as it was recently. I suspect we have all done similar posts if we work on lots of tangles. So glad you showed it to us.

It's not hard to see where your head and heart are when you look at this tangle.

I think your seashell ZIA is just lovely! Your execution of the tangles is perfection!
