A DuoTangle: Marasu and Molygon

This week’s challenge is to use only two tangles, the Zentangle official tangles Marasu and Molygon to create the tile.  Marasu is one of my favorite tangles.  I love how shading really brings it alive.  Combining it with Molygon was a challenge.  When I looked at the Marasu I saw, in my mind’s eye, Molygon being released by the spiral tangle.

This is my first attempt at combining these two tangles.  While I like the concept, next time I want to see what happens if I fill the interior of Molygon and choose different color combinations.  I like these colors for Marasu, but not crazy about it for Molygon. I am looking forward to making the time to play with these two tangles during the week.

This is my first tile:

Tangles: Marasu and Molygon
Color: Prismacolor pencils

Be sure to check out the Diva blog  to see how others combined these two tangles.  I hope that you find the tiles on Laura’s blog as inspiring and educational as I do. I create my tiles before looking at other’s work so I am not influenced by other’s interpretations. Now it is time to see how they met the challenge.

Thank you to those who posted comments on my tiles last week. 🙂

Just a note: There are times when I would like to leave a comment about someone’s tile but find that I am not able to do so because I don’t have any of the accounts required to respond.  Sorry!  I hope you know that I appreciate your tiles too!

Until next time,
Sending smiles,
