Using Two Tangles: Copada and Chebucto

This week’s Diva Challenge is to use two and only two tangles, both of which are by Margaret Bremner.  These two tangles are Copada and Chebucto.

This is my tile for this week:

Tangles: Copada and Chebucto

Tangles: Copada and Chebucto and Colored with Prismacolor Pencils

It was interesting putting these two tangles together.  I thought about creating them inside of  Hollibaugh segments, but then I would be using three tangles, so I gave up on that idea.  Then I thought about weaving them together and figured that what I had in my mind wouldn’t showcase either pattern, so I decided to use Chebucto as a frame and Copada across the interior of the tile.

I am a little late getting this tile done because I was getting ready for the blizzard coming to CT.  I actually love the snow, but am not looking forward to the winds.  I just hope that I don’t lose my electricity because if I do I lose my heat.  And they are saying that if we lose our electricity it could take three or four days to get it back.  That’s cold!  The workers can’t start until the storm is over, which they are predicting to be sometime on Wednesday.  It will be what it will be.

I encourage you to visit the Diva Challenge and see how others are answering this challenge.  It is amazing how we all respond differently.  Enjoy them.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would be delighted if you left me a comment.  And, a huge thank all who have left comments in the past.

  • Love the pretty colors. Hope they’ll keep you warm this week. Batten the hatches!!!

    • Hi,
      The hatches are battened down and I’m ready for the storm. It will be interesting to see how close to the predictions this storm is. So many times they exaggerate the severity and people buy into the fear. That said, they have closed the highways to all but emergency vehicles, so we are preparing for the worst. So far I still have electricity…here’s hoping. 🙂 Thank you for the comments and well wishes.

  • love the colors you chose. I just bought a prismacolor colorless blender and I’m really enjoying the effect it gives.

    • Hi Emily,
      I bought a Lyra colorless blender that I like even more than my prismacolor colorless blender. It isn’t as scratchy. If you get the chance you might want to try it and see if you like it better than the prismacolor blender. Either way, it is fun, isn’t it?

  • This is delicious! I love the blue and yellow palette, and the “stars” sparkling over your copada! Such a pretty tile.

    • Thanks, Heidi. I am toying with the idea of using a metallic gel pen for the “stars.” It won’t show up that well on the scan, but will in person.

  • I love this bright and colorful tile a lot, Maureen. Oh, and I did use Hollibaugh so did I really use three tangles???? Very wrong of me.
    Keep warm and safe!

    • Hi Annemarie,
      My decision to not put the tangles within Hollibaugh was just my take on using it. I don’t see it as a right or wrong, it is just a choice. I haven’t taken the time to view the tiles on the Diva Challenge. Thank you for your comment which is nudging me to do that soon. 🙂

  • I really love the colour of your tile, it looks so beautiful. Your variation of Copada is so nice!

  • I also interrupted my challenge tangling yesterday to run out to buy enough provisions to last through snowmageddon. They had already announced that Philadelphia schools and government offices would be closed today (Tuesday). Except, um, we got less than 2 inches of snow. Yep, predicting the weather (especially coastal storms) is an imprecise science. I also found my execution of Chebucto and Copada to be an inexact science. (How’s that for a segue?) I think you were very wise to choose to keep your composition simple, but add color to lend interest which you did very effectively. The palette you used reminds me of Indian (i.e. south Asian) art. Nice.

    • Hi Suzanne,
      Loved the segue. 🙂 We did get a lot of snow and the winds are wild, but thankfully we didn’t lose our electricity. YAHOOO! I get that the colors look Indian. I didn’t think about it as I chose them. I really love using yellows and oranges either with blue or green. Thanks for the comments.

  • Love the colors!

  • Really pretty tile. I too am facing the weather and this brought a little sunshine in 🙂

  • There is something oriental in your lovely tile. I love the colours.

    • Thank you for your comment and awareness. It warms my heart that you liked the tile and the colors. 🙂

  • Wonderful tile! I like the oriental touch. Great colouring, too!

    • Hi LonettA, thank you. Looking oriental/Indian wasn’t in my original awareness but am glad that this is how it is perceived by others. I appreciate the comment. 🙂 Still cleaning up from the snowstorm and haven’t had the time to check out the other tiles yet. Thanks for being another reminder to do that.

  • Nicely done! Copada looks like sun and stars. (Blue and orange/yellow is one of my favorite color combinations!)

    • Thank you Margaret. I am humbled and honored that you like my tile. I really enjoy creating the yellow/orange combination with either blue or green. Thank you too for creating these wonderful tangles. I am finding so many ideas on how to use them by viewing the other tiles on the Diva blog. I hope that I will have time this weekend to play with these tangles. 🙂

  • Great Tile and the complimentary colors really set it off well!

  • Your tile absolutely glows! How beautiful!

  • Wonderful tile, great color treatment.

  • Love that your blue is highlighted by the background of your blog color! Wonderful creation and like how you framed copada with chebucto. Has such a warm upbeat feeling.
