This week’s Diva challenge is Betweed as a monotangle. I have to say I like Betweed, not sure why I don’t use it more often. After I put my initials on the tile I decided that I liked it better on it’s side.
This week’s Diva Challenge is to use pink to honor her grandmother Ardath who passed away from breast cancer this past year, and in support of all those affected by breast cancer. I was able to work on my tile tonight. I wasn’t sure when I started what I would tangle. I just knew I wanted to include hearts to symbolize love and hope for everyone affected by breast and other cancers.
Laura received a letter from a 12 year old young man named Daniel. In it he says “I think it would be a good way to further inspire tanglers and raise awareness if you considered a challenge to somehow put some aspect of LGBT in a tile. Perhaps using the colors of the rainbow, or using tangles that start with L, G, B, and T, or using those letters as a string?” Laura was so impressed with this young man that she decided to make his request this week’s challenge. I had completed this tile earlier this week, but decided to add the colors of the rainbow to it. The colors are brighter on the actual tile. The auras radiating out from the flowers and leaves seemed to me to represent how acceptance of our many differences continues to grow as people realize that we are all more alike than we are different.
This week’s Diva Challenge is to use a blind string. I need to do this more often. I always like the results. My tiles seem to have more of a “free spirited” feel to them, less controlled. I forgot to take a picture of the string for my first tile, but it was so much fun that I decided to do a second one and this time remembered to get the picture of the string before I started tangling.
