T Stands for….tangle and loads of dressing!!

I love to join Elizabeth and her furry pals Bleubeard and Squiggles on Tuesdays, you're invited too as long as you bring your drink with you!!

Today I have been returning to something I did a while ago - it's on my blog somewhere(hmm…should I have saved this for '2nd Look'?)
Every so often I get an urge to tangle, although I don't think it is really - just doodling!!!(I even have a board on Pinterest devoted to zentangling and doodles)
This is how I'm getting on
 The one on the right started almost the same way except I used inks for that one. This time I scribbled on some Neo-colour IIs and used my water brush to blend the colours.
I am now using a Pitt pen to draw around and separate the colours - I will enjoy sitting with this at our caravan to fill in the patterns.
Now, my drink, not entirely healthy but we were on holiday, our first day in Troyes. We found a lovely square..
not far from here
and here
this is what we had
I'm sure your eyes are drawn straight to the huge amount of dressing on that lettuce - it's a good job we had decide to order one with frites and one with 'salad' so we could do a swapsie.
As you can see our drink was Coke Zero, we had been drinking our water all morning!!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Wow, really like your post from France! I don't think I have been since we got married on the Swedish embassy in Paris, more than 10 years ago... I envy doodlers, I subscribe to Doodlers Anonymous, but simply don't have the imagination, it seems. Happy T-Day!

I enjoy patio eating and areas where buildings are close to the street. This looks fun :)

Lorraine said...

Well you know how much i love doodling and tangling. Love your page! The food looks delish! Ahhh eating out in the market... reminds me of our first meal in Germany... sitting outside at a table... church bells ringing in the distance... it was a surreal moment i will not forget.. Happy Tday! Hugs! deb

Your tangles are just amazing. I really like the background colors and it must be really relaxing filling them in.

I've had a go at tangling but would never have thought to place colours then separate them with patterns. What a fun idea to take to your caravan. Barbxx

Fabulous doodles...you are creating magic on your pages dear Chris!
Glad you were living it up on your travels and enjoying yourselves.
Those streets look SO inviting.
Happy T Day oxo

Fabulous tangles, the colours as well look lovely, it seems like this could be a restful calming way to journal. Super photos as well.

Your doodles are fabulous and I love the buildings on your photos.
Many thanks for your comment on my post. Happy T Day (even if I am a little late) :D

Your journal pages are superb. I like the colors on the left, but I suspect all will change once the doodles start. I really like these, even though I have no desire to make them.

What actually caught my eye was the HUGE salad, not the dressing. It's amazing that no matter where you go, some things remain constant, like COKE. Thanks for sharing these wonderful holiday photos with us, as well as your coke for T this Tuesday. And I apologize. I'm so far behind, I may NEVER catch up.

LOvely photos, the salad looks wonderful! Have fun with the doodling, looks like you put a lot of hard work into that page, well done. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

Love the journal spread with the amazing designs

I really like your zentangles. I've only done a couple of them. Love the photos! Mr. G and I often swap half of our meal at restaurants. Then we get a taste of two different things. :)
Happy T day...a day late!

Pamellia Johnson said...

Krisha said...

What wonderful pictures, I would love to visit places like that.

I happen to like dressing, so I didn't even notice it...ha, ha.

I really like your doodling, nothing like relaxing with a pen in hand......I think.

Thanks for the T-day visit, sorry I'm so late in returning the visit.

Whether it's tangling or doodling it looks marvellous. I really love the pretty colours on the left hand page too. Troyes looks like a wonderful place to visit... need more Tempus!!
