Rock Pool Twinchie

When I first saw the subject of Summer for the second Twinchie challenge I didn't think I'd be entering anything. I'm not quite sure how it came about but I found myself thinking about looking into a rock pool to find shells - a typical summer pastime when holidaying by the sea &, since I had a vague recollection of seeing some kind of shell tangle somewhere, that's where I began.

tangles: Sanibelle, Squid
I recently ordered the Official Zentangle® Kit from TanglePatterns.com run by Linda Farmer as I was particularly attracted by the idea of the 20-sided die & Zentangle Legend™ that it contains. At the moment Linda includes an interactive e-book (emailed as a pdf file) of official tangles with purchases from her site. As I've already received the pdf file I printed it out & had a look through. It's a lovely comprehensive graphic guide - as is Linda's web site which I find myself turning to as well as the Suzanne McNeill books. Imagine my delight when I saw several shell patterns & then stumbled upon this rather magnificent squid. So here I am entering a tangled Summer Twinchie after all - I do hope it is acceptable to enter tangled Twinchies as I can see me doing this upon a regular basis now that I think there might be a way of interpreting the challenge themes.
