Diva Challenge #68: the Duo-Tangle

iamthedivaczt Photobucket
Each week, the Diva gives us a challenge and sends us to work! This week's challenge was to make a duo-tangle, using the patterns Strircles and Hybrid only. No other patterns, just these two. I started with a zendala - kind of liking these now. Now that I'm not afraid of them anymore! (Thank you, Erin!) It kind of reminds me of this huge star with a lot of little moons circling it! Haha!

Then I pulled out a square zentangle tile and drew this. (I forgot to shade, so I added the shading in photoshop just before I posted this.) The strircle pattern is just determined to remind me of the solar system! I think I'll keep working with this idea of the two patterns. I'm still new at this - I'd like to rev it up and get more detailed and intricate. Coming up with the ideas is the hard part for me! I keep looking online, and studying other artist's work, hopefully the ideas will start coming :). Please visit the Diva's page here to check out the other tiles, and even consider posting one of your own!

  1. Both are super nice. I really like the little bit of color in the second one and the symmetrical feel of the first one.
