Using the Tangle Molygon…

With the introduction of the newest official tangle, Molygon, I became really intrigued about this week’s Diva Challenge. I have become addicted to ZenGems so I wanted to see if I could combine the new tangle with a gem and this is what I came up with:

Tangle: Molygon Colored with Prismacolor pencils

While I’m not totally satisfied with the tile, I post my first tile in answer to the challenge.  Next time I will try larger Molygons to see if they look better with the ZenGem.  I’ll have to take the time to play more this weekend. 🙂

The image below shows part of just one of my many, many practice sheets. (The paper is bigger than my scanner so it cut off the bottom.) I like trying different colored pencils to see how they work for me.  I was surprised at how well the Crayola colored pencils worked, but my favorites are still my PrismaColor pencils.

If these inspire you to create ZenGems, I just want to warn you…they are incredibly addictive!

Now that my blog has been posted I am going to see what others created in response to the challenge.  I hope you will take time to view the tiles at the Diva Challenge blog and find these tiles as inspiring and educational as I do. The challenge also shows the step-outs for Molygon.

There are times that I would like to leave a comment about someone’s tile but find that I am not able to do so because the only option that I am able use is the name/URL option.  I do not fit into the other categories.  Sorry!  I hope you know that I appreciate your tiles too!

As always, I am so grateful to all who leave me comments, which are a great source of encouragement and support.  To those who left comments last time, a huge THANK YOU!

Until next time,
Sending smiles,
Maureen

  • Your Molygon goes beautifully with the zengem. They were made for each other. The gems really are addictive, but I warn you Molygon is addictive too 🙂

  • Beautiful gems!!!!

  • Love your Molygon setting for your beautiful gem. The setting looks similar to one of the vintage pieces my mother had. You’re right about the gems…they are very addictive and Prismacolor are my favorite too. But I think that Molygon may become one of my favorites because it is just so much fun to play with! Great job!

    • Thank you Lezli for letting me know that it looks like a real piece of jewelry. I agree, Molygon is addictive too and so much fun watching it go where it wants to go. 🙂
