Diva Challenge #175

I always like the UMT challenges, especially when they get me to try out a tangle that I otherwise wouldn’t have learned. Such was the case with this week’s tangle, Crux.

It took me a little while to get into this one (in my first attempt I drew the lines all wrong, and nothing connected right–aah!). However, after a few false starts, I ended up with two tiles that I was pretty happy with.

In the first one, I think I tried to do too much in a single tile. I was trying to use sepia and black use Crux, transition from Crux to Forest, and use a new tangle of my own that I’m still figuring out. When I got done it looked like this:

Ok, but it didn’t feel quite right to me. I felt like the tangle on top was getting lost in the rest. So I went over it again with a thicker pen (Micron 08–bringing out the big guns…) and ended up with this:

which I’m much happier with.

Today, I decided I wanted to give Crux another go, and came up with this:

I didn’t realize until I looked at the thumbnail while I was posting it, but from a distance it looks a bit like a snake. Totally unintentional. But cool nonetheless.

Have a great day!

  1. Both tile are very nice, but my favorite is your rework of the first one. The organic swirls really add something special to the tile.
