Weekly Challenge #238
UMT (Use My Tangle): Tri-Bee

   Before I get straight to the challenge, I just wanted to show you a little bit of 'life as I know it', here at Casa deCarlo's. Back in April we bought chickies for the kids, (I mean the Easter Bunny brought chickies for the kids). So now that we're in September, we can definitely see which 'one' turned out to be rooster. (Thank goodness, it was only one!)  So we have 5 hens and one rooster. And as of this week, we are now benefiting from these little ladies. We are getting eggs! (I guess I should say, one of them is laying. One egg a day!) Beautiful brown eggs!!!!
The white ones are from the store. (I just added them in the photo shoot.)

Anybody want a rooster? We need to get rid of him now that there are eggs coming!  This is our mobile chicken coupe.
   And then we had a glorious rain!!! Oh, how I wish we would get a true 'Fall' like so many other states!

This is my view when I'm washing dishes! Oh how I would love to Tangle that wall!!!!  As soon as I find out that our house is in escrow and they will be tearing it down,......I'm gonna be tangling this whole house:0)
   So there is a bit of 'life as I know it'! Now on with the fun!!
Oh, how I love this new tangle by Beate Winkle, CZT. Thank you Beate for sharing it with us, and thank you Laura for choosing it for UMT! It's always exciting to see new tangles that everyone has created.
Ok, I wish I had taken a picture of the true shapes of Tri-bee, before I started turning them into Narwal.  But for step outs for Narwal, the pencil shape used, can be like that of what is used in Tri-bee. That is what inspired me to use Narwal. Turned this way, it looks a little like a wonky elephant.

I know,....... a little crazy and wild!!!!! But I tell you what, when I got started I just couldn't stop! I got so into my zen that I completely got lost!!

As I had finished the original, I kept thinking what would it look like if I colored it?  So my good friend Jean Chaney, gave me the perfect solution,.........Scan it and then print it and color the print! (now why didn't I think of that?) Thanks again, Jean :0)
   I also figured that since it is October and close to Halloween, I might as well spook it up even more.
Please remember to go to the Diva's website and check out how everyone else has used Tri-Bee. Also, if you like to tangle, why not give the Zendala Dare at The Bright Owl, a try. It's lots of fun, and this weeks' challenge is getting us ready for Halloween too!
   A big THANKS to all of you who visit and leave a message! Your words are always appreciated!

Have an awesome rest of the week!!

  1. O.M.G.!!!!! Clever and beautiful! I adore Narwal, so I love how you combined these. I don't know what's more stunning - the color or the black & white one.

  2. You are a lucky person with that view!!!! Your Tri-Bee turning into Narwal made me smile and it's BEAUTIFUL.

  3. Oh, what a beautiful idea! Narwal looks lovely. I love the simplicity of the first drawing. I can see the skeleton of Tri-bee in it. The lines look alive. Lovely work.

  4. Oh, what a beautiful idea! Narwal looks lovely. I love the simplicity of the first drawing. I can see the skeleton of Tri-bee in it. The lines look alive. Lovely work.

  5. What a neat way to combine the two, and I love it colored!

  6. Gorgeous Tri-bee - Narwal combination!

  7. Very creative putting the Narwal into the Tri-bee! I enjoyed all that you have done on this challenge.

  8. Great tangleation to use Narwal and Tri-bee. Looks great. The black/white piece is great but the color piece is stunning. I have to admit that I did not have time to read your complete post but I did enjoy the pictures.

  9. What a lovely idea to combine Tri-Bee and Narwal! Absolutely beautiful! I like the coloured version a lot!

  10. If I had seen the final version first, I would never have seen where it came from. The way you developed the idea is fascinating. Excellent piece of work.

  11. I had to laugh. When I first saw this, I thought you made a "mistake" and did Narwal instead of Tri-bee! Amazingly clever. I love it!

  12. Wow, the. Colour is fabulous, how clever

  13. I love your Tri-Wal. It's amazing how things go all werewolf close to Halloween, isn't it?
