Wonky Orb: Knightsbridge, Cadent, Florz, and Striping

This week I decided to do the prompt from Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic #TTKICPrompt082619 which was to round out the square created by the corner dots and then draw a ‘z’ to section it off.

Of the couple dozen tangles given to select from, I chose Knightsbridge, Cadent, Florz, and Striping (top to bottom on the tile). Unfortunately I made a few lines that were opportunities for creativity. ;) And I was so focused on covering up those bits that I jumped right in with some shading and forgot to take a pre-shaded picture. :( Oh well.

So here is the scanned finished piece.

My light that I use for my tangling was not charged and I was doing a lot of this with limited light. :( Also my microns were nearly all dried up . . . I guess I’m going to need to get another set.

Here is a picture I took of the tile in natural light. It’s been overcast most of the day, so that there is any sun at all is a plus.

Which is your favorite tangle?

Corner Tile using Striping, Meer, and Ratoon

This week I returned to Today’s Tangles: Keeping it Classic prompt, #TTKICPrompt080519, which was to draw arcs from one corner, skipping the corner dots this week.

I chose Striping, Meer, and Ratoon from the list Sandy provided. Here is my tile before shading. (I forgot to take a picture before any tangling.)

Here is a picture taken outside while the sun was hiding behind a cloud. :D

Here is the scan after shading. (I think I need to clean my scanner; it appears that there is some specks of dirt on the scanning bed.)

Here it is in the natural (overcast) light.

I shaded several layers and am pleased with how it turned out.

Which row is your favorite? From the inside arc it is Striping, then Meer, and then the final arc is Ratoon (it’s the loopy one). As you can see, the first two tangles are quite simple can truly be drawn by anyone–and actually, most people probably have. Ratoon is a bit more difficult but if you are interested in trying your hand at it, you can see the directions here.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope this encourages you to put pen to paper sometime soon.

Until next time,
