Challenge #28 Trip to Tripoli

TRIPOLI is the new tangle introduced by Rick & Maria at Zentangle this week.  I had the feeling that this would be the challenge for the week from Laura, the one and only CZT diva, so I started playing with it a little last night.  I love this tangle because it has so much potential and variety, but I will need to play with it more because I am having some trouble getting all my little triangles the same size, turned the right way, and the same distance apart.  Normally, I would wait and work with this more, but I have a full week planned and I am not sure I will have the time to get back to this again.  So, I am posting my 1st attempts, one on a tile and the other on a small piece of Stonehenge paper that I had left over from another project.  I applied a color pencil wash to it first and then tangled.  I had fun experimenting with color, trying a new tangle, and really enjoyed the process of creating.  So after reading the post on the Zentangle blog today, I am not waiting for time to try something "better" to post!  Thanks,  Rick and Maria for that great post!  Thanks, Laura for another great challenge.
