For this week’s tile I decided to participate in Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic facebook group’s prompt. Sandy has a very thorough prompt each Monday, although I do not know how she handles holidays yet. There are about a dozen suggested tangles, a suggested string, as well as a tangling term of the week.
I attempted to draw a string similar to hers and proceeded to try and select tangles that I was ‘drawn’ to. Here is my tile with the string; please forgive the quality of the picture, I was too lazy to get up and take a scan or go outside and take a picture. I thought the lighting I had would be sufficient. I never did get the entire tile in the picture.
I thought the loops of the string lended themselves to Indy-Rella rather nicely and had hoped that I could do an auraknot in one of the triangular sections. My Auraknot was not pleasing to me but I moved on. I then decided to use Fife ‘behind’ the Indy-Rella. Once again, I placed my dots too closely together and wished I’d made my ‘grid’ larger. But I pressed on and I’m okay with it.
So here is my tile (scanned) before shading. Oh, I opted for the blackening of the ‘triangular’ sections in Fife.
Here is the pre-shaded tile in natural lighting.
Here is the scan after some shading.
Here is a picture of the tile taken in natural lighting.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll let me know you did so in the comments.
Until next time, God bless,
