Since Laura Harms generally takes the summer off from posting challenges, I didn’t even check the Diva Challenge this week. Instead I’m continuing on with Sandy’s Today’s Tangles weekly prompt. (#TTKICPrompt062419)
This week’s prompt had an intricate string, which I copied somewhat. There was so much to it and it created so many sections that I knew I would not be putting something different in each section. I really like W2, so I decided to use it. I liked Marasu the times I’ve used it, and thought that one of the circular sections would lend itself to Marasu. After I did the section with it, I realized I could have just made the whole string a Marasu snake. But I’d didn’t think it would look as good at that point, so I moved on.
I found a place to use Betweed. I made friends with Betweed several months ago. Prior to that, I just couldn’t make it look right, nor could I seem to wrap my head around it. It is actually very simple; I don’t know why I struggled so.
Then there was Finery. Yep, we are not friends yet. It’s just kind of there. I didn’t quite get the right curves and angles on the lines for it but that is okay. The last tangle I used was Fescu, which is super simple and easy to draw.
Here is the tile before shading.
Here is a picture I did midway of the shading.
Well, that’s my tile for the week. Thanks for stopping by. Which tangle of these is your favorite? (Top to bottom: W2, Finery (on the left), Marasu, Betweed, and Fescu)
Until next time,
