This week’s Diva Challenge is a “Use My Tangle” challenge to use Rautyflex by Kathrin Bendel. We were forewarned that Rautyflex takes a considerable amount of focus and it did.
I decided to use its simplest form even though I think I will like the wavy form better when I can play with it a bit more. The simplest form was challenging. Ahhh, duh! This is called a challenge not just an assignment or suggestion.
I picked string# 196 from tanglepatterns. Since the tangle was very angular, I wanted a string that was a bit curvy.
I decided to put rautyflex up front and center and then proceeded to look for tangles that would go with it but not overshadow it. I’ve been wanting to try using antidots for a while and this seemed like a good opportunity. When I first drew this tangle I crosshatched the centers but didn’t like that, so I filled them in and then wished I had left them crosshatched. Oh well!
I wanted something a bit airy for the top section and settled on floatfest but struggled with shading it. It is what it is.
I’ve been considering doing a few more tiles each week and will share them here on Wednesdays. I hope I follow through on this.
Thanks in advance to those that make the effort to comment. I really appreciate it!
Until next time, God bless,
