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.
I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I’m also very surprised with how the swaddle flowering turned out. The sample on pattern collections was in color and I think it really took away from the pretty flower aspect of the tangle.
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!
