" Tangled on the Inside " - Weekly Challelnge #44

This challenge has a great theme!  The Diva says:  "A while back Jo in NZ sent me an idea for a challenge... the idea is that you use one tangle as the 'string' and then fill in all the spaces with other tangles.  A tangle within a tangle....So, this week's challenge is to create a tile or ZIA using a tangle or tangle section as your string, then to fill in the 'blanks' with other tangles." 

And besides having a great theme, it was really fun!  When the Diva's challenge is posted on her blog each Monday morning, I read it, digest it, think about it, review my 'tangle bible', scribble a few strings on paper..... and, bottom line:  I procrastinate because ideas just don't easily bounce around in front of me and get lodged in my brain!  Ugh!!!! 

Artist block?  Perhaps.  In the words of one artist:  "In art, there are many tools to be used. But all these tools are rendered useless when you are missing the most important one: inspiration."  by *arriku

And when I read the guidelines for this challenge, I was inspired!! 

Thanks Jo and Laura.

Thank you for visiting....

  1. Oh, great use of many tangles! I really love the subtle color of the square spirals and that they are so linear filling the inside of what is a very non linear, non symmetrical Mooka tangle. and all that is inside a paisley! Awesome.

  2. Very cool, I love that you were able to go three layers of tangling and get such a beautiful result.

  3. Nicely done, I really enjoy your picture within a picture effect.

  4. Hey There! I recently discovered your blog and love it. I have bestowed the coveted 'Versatile Blogger' award on you! Please go to my blog for details! www.mollybeesattic.blogspot.com

  5. I loved both of these but especially the second one. Loved the elegance and simplicity of the tangles within the tangles, well done!

  6. I love how you made pokeroot look like cherries. Very cool.

  7. These are so lovely and so detailed. Wonderful!
