This week’s Diva Challenge is Earth Day. I decided to use a simple spherical shape for my string. I wanted to incorporate Square One’s focus tangle for the week as well; it is Funbee by Beate Winkler. It seemed like a really nice and easy tangle to use (and it was ).
The daily tangle on Pattern-Collections is Pointu by Genevieve Crabe. This one reminded me of a compass so I thought it would be appropriate for my tile too.
I drew my circle and my square freehand, which is not optimal for the best results. My lines didn’t exactly intersect where they should have but that’s okay.
I decided to add Funbee on each point.
I couldn’t use my scanner when I needed to before shading so I had to settle for a picture instead.
I don’t feel I did either of these tangles justice but I enjoyed doing it and that is the point.
I decided I liked the circle pencil mark there, so I gave it a little rubbing with my stump.
Hmm, it doesn’t really show up very well in the scan. Oh well. As you can see, I shaded on the upper side of the middle line in the center in an effort to get it where it was supposed to be. As usual, I think it looks a bit better in person.
My daughter thought it looked like a shield; we’ve been playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so she’s seen a few shields of late. My husband thought it looked like a ferris wheel. My son, who happens to have the same personality type as I do, thought it looked like a compass rose. Yep, we do that a lot.
I think it looks better a little smaller . . . see?
Well, I want to thank you for stopping by and give an extra thanks to those who take the time to leave some comment love! You all are awesome and are such an encouragement. I really, really appreciate each and every one!!!
Have a great day!
Until next time, God bless,
