Weekly Challenge #120: “Tangleation Nation; Bales”

Another fun challenge from the Diva. Thanks Laura! Bales is one of my favorite go-to tangles. There are so many different things you can do to change it up. My first tile combines Rick’s paradox with bales. I added a little color because bales seemed to get lost in all the lines. If I had it to do over again, I would have used just one or two colors instead of four.  My second tile combined bales and a variation of strircles. I think it’s my favorite!

Thanks for the comments people have made on my page. I read them all and they’re always appreciated.


Weekly Challenge #119: “Ebony and Ivory”

This week’s challenge is to use both black and white versions of the same tangles. It took me a long time to get to it this week, but here is my contribution using strircles, up n down and knightsbridge. I have to say I enjoyed this challenge a lot.


Weekly Challenge #118: “UMT v. XVI – Kuke”

This week’s Diva Challenge is to use Kuke by Katy Abbot. I hadn’t tried it yet and discovered that I really like this pattern. I’m not usually a big fan of color, but since this pattern was inspired by a cucumber slice, I decided to add a touch of pale green.  Also, this week I’ve seen several black tiles and zendalas done with metallic gel pens.  I really liked the look so I thought I would give it a try. It’s a different feel than using the micron pens, but I liked using them. They really pop on the black tile.
