Thank you everyone for your well wishes in the last post, I am feeling well enough to participate in the festivities now. :)
Here’s my tile for Joey’s 48th challenge. The theme is polka dots, and we are to draw a tile with non-overlapping circles and fill them with tangles. I used Mak-rah-mee to outline three circles, then filled them in. I added some colour with watercolour pencils. It was my first time using colour in a tile and I still feel like there’s something missing. Does anyone have suggestions on how I could improve this? (Feel free to leave a comment even if you don’t have suggestions!)
Assunta, Avreal, Crescent Moon, Echoism, Mak-rah-mee, Rain, Tagh, Verdigogh
It’s a String Thing #75 involved TanglePatterns String 75, designed by Maria Thomas, and five of Maria’s tangles, Bales, Echoism, Ennies, Pokeleaf and Pokeroot.
Bales, Echoism, Ennies, Pokeleaf, Pokeroot
At first I didn’t intend to use all five of the patterns, but as I tangled, they all emerged. I like Ennies a lot. It’s a combination of Flux and Tipple, two patterns that I enjoy a lot. Bales and Echoism have lots of room for customisation as well. I was a little less inspired by Pokeleaf and Pokeroot, but I’m looking forward to see what other people did with them when Adele posts the tiles on Tuesday.
