Springish – A Philadelphia Almost “Spring” Inspired Tangle

by Suzanne Fluhr on March 26, 2018 · 10 comments

Almost spring trees in Philadelphia

Out there in Zentangle® land, there are so many tangles (designs), it is hard to be sure one is publishing a “new” tangle. I usually post mine in CZT Facebook groups and ask if anyone recognizes it as something that has already been named. If people a) like it, and b) don’t recognize it, I’ll go ahead and do the step outs and share them. So, here is Springish.

My latest tangle deconstruction is inspired by this view as I walked outside and looked up through some tree branches on an almost spring day here in Philadelphia. This is what I saw:

I liked the lacy effect of the branches with seed balls. I wish I could identify the type of tree for you.

I deconstructed the look and came up with these step outs:

A few days later, we had our 4th N’oreaster winter storm in March on the first day of spring and these people appeared on Rittenhouse Square.

Here is Springish used on a few days of Carole Ohl’s Tangle*a*Day© 2018 calendar.

When it snowed on the first day of spring, I was concerned that the heavy, cold, white stuff might have snuffed out the budding spring flowers, but then the day after the storm, I found this:

That is just amazing – to see that in those trees – then helping the rest of us see that, too! I see stuff all the time now thanks to you! I just love those snow people!!! And the flowers fighting their way through because they KNOW it’s time!!!
