Seta and Swaddle Flowering

Well, Festina Lente 2019 is over and there is still no Diva Challenge so I went off to Square One: Purely Zentangle to find the focus tangle of the week. I was pleased to find it was an easy (ish) one and by one of our Diva Challenge Participants: LonettA named Seta.

I then checked Pattern-Collections tangle for today and found it to be Swaddle Flowering by Lila Holter. I wasn’t too sure about this one and I didn’t get it exactly right because one of my lines was not quite bulbous enough, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

It was nice to do a smaller piece than I had been doing, going back to the standard 3.5″ square tile and just simply getting back to basics. It was also much quicker to complete. ;) Here is my tile before shading.

Overall both these tangles were enjoyable and I would enjoy using them again. I hope this sparks your creativity and you give it a go as well.

Thanks for stopping by!
