Diva Challenge #269 – Ellish

Diva Challenge #269 Entry
Tile for Diva Challenge #269

The Diva’s challenge for this week is to create a tile using the newest official tangle called Ellish. The step outs are available in the May 20th newsletter from Zentangle.com. Ellish was inspired by the cursive letter L, and of course would make a lovely monogram.

I was first introduced to Ellish at the Zentangle Retreat that I attended earlier this month. My initial attempt was okay, but I wanted to practice and get better at it since it is such a neat tangle. The release of the step outs helped, and I think I more or less have it down now.

For this challenge I went for simplicity. When I finished up ellish I couldn’t resist adding the zingers at the ends. This was a fun challenge!

  1. That’s a beautiful Ellish…nice and simple, like it should be…or at least, that’s the way I look at it. I love the little zingers. I use them a lot when I don’t know what else to do, lol.

    1. Thanks so much Joyce! I agree about zingers — they make great toppers or to add some flourish. I guess my default is to go for simplicity. Having said that, I do like complex patterns as well. 🙂
