Since this week’s diva challenge is a duotangle with specified tangles, there was no need for me to check focus tangles from my usual sources. However Tripoli and I are not very good friends, so I decided to look for a video tutorial to give me some help with it. I found this one by Melinda Barlow.
Melinda pointed out in the video that when Tripoli was released it was noted as a grid tangle. Well, I can do grid tangles. Mine are usually pretty wonky, so I don’t expect it to turn out perfect like others’ do.
I focused on her suggestion to work it n rows and imaginary grid. I did a lot better keeping my lines evenly spaced this time, so it will probably serve me well in the future. I didn’t end up with those pretty circular sections that I usually see in other people’s use of Tripoli but it worked here.
I decided to draw large Shattuck sections/strips diagonally across my tile. Then started in the middle and tangled in some Tripoli. I did two sections alike, and behind one separating bar in Hollibaugh fashion. I did do a section with just Shattuck only I used arches instead of straight lines. I generally forget that Shattuck is supposed to have straight lines instead of arcs. I also did some small Tripoli.
Here is my tile before shading.
Overall, I like how this tangle turned out.
I’m really glad I tangled the arches over the medium size Tripoli, I like how it looks.
I really appreciate you stopping by. I also really enjoy and am encouraged by all your comments.
Until next time, God bless,
