On the fifth day of 3Zs . . .



On the fifth day of 3Zs
Bijou wrapped for me
Gold, glowing tipples . . .


Some marasu encircling,
Winsome bits of shattuck,
Fetching diva dancing,
And a tile full of tripoli!


Although Bijou insists on not being photographed, Alfie sensed that Bijou was a bit irked at being left out of the photo shoots. So we all talked with Bijou and (s)he consented to pose so that Maria could create a portrait.


Alfie arranged all the 3Z tiles we've done so far into a mosaic and he loves appreciating how they all fit together so beautifully.



-----+-----

Thank you all for continuing to play with these twelve days!

The hashtag for today's tile is: #5thdayof3zs

For tangling today's tipple, we used a brown Micron® 01 and a Metallic Gold GellyRoll®. We'll keep that tradition throughout the rest of the tiles when tangling tipple . . . just like in the song!

To see the guidelines for these 12 days, go here.

We will give out a prize for one randomly chosen poster of each day's tiles on the app and also for one randomly chosen commenter on each day's blog post. (We'll announce the winners shortly after the twelfth day.)

And here's tipple:


See you tomorrow!

Gold Tipple is perfect! You guys are definitely making this a challenge to look forward to! Now where's my gold pen?? ;o)

Does Bijou have a girlfriend? Hopefully he will make an appearance soon! I'm starting to use the Renaissance 3Z's.

Kim said...

Oh wow...and Tipple is my favorite :D

PamS said...

Wow, they positively glow! Love how the tiles are magnifying one anothers' beauty. My wonderful 3Zs arrived today, alas, I need to wait for 12/25 to officially open them! Back to my journal for this awesome challenge till then, I go! Maybe a little tipple of wine this evening for when I tangle tipple!

Anya Ipsen said...

Lovely tiles! I am looking forward to your daily post and it´s hard to wait all day (well at least in Germany it´s around 9 pm!)
It is so fitting that you added the most simple and perfect tangle in gold!!

Esther Piszczek, CZT said...

Gorgeous! I love the sepia /gold pen combination, what a lovely way to dress up tipple, already a wonderful tangle! YAY!

I am seeing a beautiful quilt-like pattern emerge.

Laura Carpenter CZT21 said...

How fun is this!! Gold tipple...beautiful!

Edwin Ortiz said...

What a great choice for the 5th day!

Carol Graham said...

I think the "gender neutral" pronoun "ZE" would be perfect for our little friend Bijou!

MayAnn Scheblein-Dawson said...

Such a lovely, simple tangle... great for filling in between tangles too! Perfect for day 5!

Chrissie Frampton said...

Oh these are wonderful, what a super idea to do this Maria and Rick. They are all stunning.

Sarah Hluchy said...

I got so excited to tangle my own piece with all five tangles that I forgot to comment! Thanks for having this challenge, I'm very much enjoying it.

Laura said...

5 golden rings! I can't start yet, but I look forward to a few tangling moments while the cookie dough chills! Thank you!
PS...I love the portrait of Bijou

Barb Bradley said...

Almost like kaleidoscopes!! Love the 3Zs!!

I love the addition of the gold. Your ever-changing mosaics are now both beautiful AND festive.

A lovely uncompicate tangle to continue the mosaic and beautiful is the combination with the gold!!!

Amy in TN said...

The beauty of all of this is astonishing. It is such a joy to look forward to each day's additions. Thank you!!!

Lisa Anderson said...

Golden tipple...Love this it!

Mamie Pennington said...

Alfie and Bijou are doing wonderful work in presenting the tiles! I think that sometimes we forget that "simple" tangle like Tipple can be so dramatic and eye catching. Thanks for the beautiful reminders.

Jami Lawniczak said...

I love your twelve days of Christmas, so much fun!!

Bette Abdu said...

Tipple is a great tangle. It goes with everything!

Deanne Biron said...

I love Tipple! "Gold Rings".... Tee Hee... Too Cool! :)

JLOmans said...

The mosaic is absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to make my own 'golden' rings!

Lianne said...

I'm glad Bijou has come to the party with his/her portrait. I was missing him. I hope everyone at ZTHQ enjoy a good tipple as you look through all the amazing tiles for the 12 days of 3Z.

Michele Wynne said...

Wow! Gorgeous. I love Tipple and use it everywhere, but I've never used gold. Thank you for all of the wonderful eye candy and inspiration.

Denise Fairbank said...

Excited to add tipple, which is always so easy to do!!

MartyG said...

I just wanted to take a moment and commend Alfie on how well he is doing presenting the tiles. Kudos on convincing Bijou to have his portrait taken. I know he is shy. I am off to tipple.

Linda J F said...

Golden Tipple!!! Amazingly beautiful! Thanks for sharing such awesome inspiration!!!

Sue Clark said...

Gold glowing Tipple...say no more!

Eve Knight said...

Love the color in these!

Angelia Lanouette said...

Golden tipple for day 5....perfect!

Betsy (Ben Stein's Grandma) said...

Love the brown and the metallic. Hi Bijou. Glad you could join us.

Cathrine Nicols said...

Tipple always rounds things off nicely!

J East said...

That really warms (spices?)things up beautifully --- nice complement!

Weaver chick said...

I am loving these triangle tiles!

Danita Noland said...

So many glorious possibilities! I haven't looked at the app yet to see all the golden tipples! (I won't say what my auto correct always changes tipple to, but this time it really made me laugh!)

Shoshona said...

love this one - so versatile

Gerri Hanus said...

I've loved experimenting with gold on many tangles, whether a gold gelly or when truly adventurous, gold leaf, it truly adds a wonderful dimension to tangles!

Andrea said...

Just keep these coming. So cool!

Heather Jackson said...

The 3Zs are so cool! Can't wait to try some!

leanne jao said...

Getting more interesting now! can't wait to see all 3zs.

Dana Jones said...

The addition of the gold turned already beautiful tiles into simply magnificent works of art. I love it!

elianna987 said...

Beautiful! I love the gold, and I love the fun you are having. Thank you!

Charlene said...

Oh, how fun! I love to see how you both interpret the tangles

Lady Dragoness said...

Alfie does a good job arranging the tiles, and I love how the mosaic changes each day. Endless entertainment.

Vanessa said...

Kathy Young said...

Yay! I get to use my little gold pen! πŸ˜€

Ellen said...

Another great mosaic

DebM said...

Love the use if brown and gold with tipple!!

MariΓ«t said...

I am having so much fun doing these 12 days, but I cannot get the app on my tablet,(the app is not compatible with my version) so I also cannot see what others do on the mosaic.

Paulette Kirschensteiner said...

Awesome! Tipple is one that I use a lot! Love the adding of gold color! You have two great helpers too! Thank you.

Donna Pilato said...

Wow the gold really added pizzazz to that tipple! Great idea- thanks for continuing this holiday tradition and bringing this daily dose of beauty to our days.

April Black said...

Very beautiful! Where could someone buy a book like the one pictured with the gold leaf edges?

Anonymous said...

I like how this is building and building and the addition of tipple is sweet !

Zentangle said...

APRIL BLACK: It is a very old book that has been in the family. SO you would inherit it or buy it in an antique book shop. It is 10" x 12" and about 4- 5 inches thick. It is not blank. Maria

Maureen Stott said...

They just get better and better. It is like opening an advent calendar. It is so hard to wait to see what the next one will look like! Thanks for sharing...

Kerry S said...

I love Alfie's shadow holding Bijou. Even if (s)he doesn't want to be seen, (s)he is lovingly held and supported by everyone in this community. Beautiful necklace, by the way.

Carmela said...

great idea for day 5.

MayMaple said...

Love it! 😍😍😍

Ragged Ray said...

Tipple really shows the benefits of slowing down. If I rush it there's load of little tags and it looks a mess. Slower, and it becomes something quite elegant. Although in brown ink I couldn't stop thinking of bubbly chocolate!

Kat van Rooyen, CZT said...

I love gold tipple!!!

Taz42 said...

The days are passing too quickly. 12 days is just not enough of 3Zs.

JanLo said...

Love tipple and the gold just makes it glow. The way the tiles fit together is really interesting and could also be done as "ing" I would think.

Mary Boettcher said...

I love the gold mixed in with the black and white. So pretty. I'm excited to see what the mosaic will look like on the 12th day.

Donna F said...

The gold glowing tipples are gorgeous!

Kim Mastromartino said...

CIRCLES ARE MY FAVOURITE! THEY FIND THEIR WAY INTO EVERYTHING!

Evelyn Browning said...

Nice to see your portrait Bijou, c'est magnifique! Aloes, that's about what I can manage written..........
You do bring your own inimitable character to bear on proceedings Bijou & great that you & Alfie are having such fun with these new tiles. Tipple adorned, who'd have thought such a small simple something could have such an impact - a bit like you Bijou, eh? Not to say that you're simple.......... think I'll go dig myself another hole somewhere else......... (that I think is an English turn of phrase)

Cyndee Pelley said...

I just love this! How much fun! And what an elegant job Bijou has done.

Emily Classon said...

The golden rings really make it pop. This is so fun, and I'm already singing the tangly version of the song.

Awasthlm said...

Longing to do the next tangle!

Sara said...

Tipple with metallic color is lovely! :)

Tipple with metallic color is lovely! :)

JackieSaundersCZT19 said...

Tipple, what would I do without you?

Roseanne V. Sabol said...

So beautiful with the color added. OMGoodness.......!

Natasha Dash said...

Wow! Love this! So gorgeous!

gobarb26 said...

Tipple looks so pretty in gold. I love the way Alfie is arranging the tiles.

stacie dibona said...

Gold tipple!

Chris Collins said...

Not one I tend to think of as its own tangle. It usually finds its way into other tangles.
