" Better than a Pair of Ducks" - Weekly Challenge #38

The Diva's Weekly Challenge has been posted..... and we have been invited to create a monotangle using the mysteriously charming "Paradox".  According to, one definition of a paradox is:  a person or thing exhibiting apparently contradictory characteristics. In this case, straight lines = a curvaceous design.  (For a wonderful "in-depth" tutorial of Paradox, click here)  

Before the challenge was announced, I had already decided that my string (for this week's challenge) would be symbolic of a star.  We have 50 of them proudly displayed on Old Glory.  This week, I'm feeling a bit more patriotic than usual - as the 10th anniversary of America's 9/11 tragedy is commemorated.

Thank you for visiting.....
... and happy tangling!

  3. I would love to see what your string looked like before starting this. Absolutely fabulous!!

  4. Great star! I think it's wonderful!

  5. Love how you used paradox as the shadows as well as the main star. Really cool tangle!
