This week Elaine suggested we base our creations on String 109 from Tanglepatterns.com. This week, I had time to create two tiles.
Tangles: Knight's Bridge, Warped Eggs, Paizel, Framz, Emingle, Zinger, Pippin
Tangles: W2, Hollibaugh, Bead Lines, Panthe, Ahh, Mr. E
As you can see for the first one, I ignored the border and run into some "interesting" challenges, which resulted in some "interesting" shapes. ;) For the second one, I can see that I missed a few shading opportunities and part of a line. The shading isn't that great, but until I added it I was thinking of trashing the tile altogether. It's just meh.
I guess it's my turn to suggest the challenge. How about we work with some negative space? That is, you draw a shape and tangle around it so that the shape in the end is white (or whatever colour paper you are working with) and the "background" is patterned. I've been wanting to do this challenge since one of the other artists (Tami, I think) did one a number of weeks/months back. Since it's summer and everyone is probably a little busy, I'm thinking we wait for July 10 for this one.
