This week’s Diva Challenge is to create a tile using only one tangle, which Diva Laura Harms calls a “monotangle.” The tangle she chose for this challenge is Shattuck.
I wanted to see if I could create some tangleations for this tangle. The tile has the original tangle surrounded by two tangleations. Those who have seen my tiles in the past know that I enjoy adding color, but this time I decided to keep it black on white with graphite shading.
This is my tile in response to the challenge.
Although my life is very busy right now, I decided that this was a great exercise for me so I took the time to answer this challenge. And I am glad that I did. Before committing any of the tangleations to my tile I played with ideas in my sketch book – some were rejected right away and others just need some tweaking.
This isn’t my favorite tile but it is the first one I did and I promised myself that I would always publish my first tile. It reflects the Zentangle concept that there are no mistakes.
The link to the step-outs for this tangle is on Laura’s blog. While there, be sure to check out how others have responded to the challenge. I hope that you find these tiles as inspiring and educational as I do.
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 fit into the 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,
