Diva Challenge #145

www.thecreatorsleaf.blogspot.com
Today I felt like playing with some color. This is one of those blown out rings I showed you how to create two posts back. It just screamed sea urchin to me and thankfully I was perusing Sandy Steen Bartholomew's book Totally Tangled and came across this tangle by Sandra Strait - called urchin! It fits perfectly with the circles and I love the way it turned out.

This week's Diva Challenge is to use the new official tangle quib. That's the up and down part of the above tangle. It is very similar in nature to Michele Beauchamp's mak-rah-mee tangle, so I combined the two. It almost reminds me of jelly fish and a couple octopi. I love the flowy nature of both tangles and I am definitely going to play some more with both of these!

  2. Love your colorful backgrounds, they bring out your tangles beautifully. Mak-ra-me and Quib are the perfect combo.

  3. Those holes really look deep - like the way those two patterns layer themselves together & weave almost like mak-rah-mee…… This really shows how to let the colours inform the tangles……
