So this week’s Diva Challenge was to use the tangle MacDee. When I first took a look at this tangle I really didn’t feel like I was going to be able to do much with it. Most of the tangles I tend to use have at least some curved or organic element to them, and this one is all straight lines. In the first one I did, I tried to incorporate some organic elements, and use MacDee as a background. I wasn’t thrilled by it, but I thought that might just be my reaction to the tangle, so I put it aside and went on with my week.
However, when I was about to start my post today I decided to give it another go. I used browns and sepias, and curved lines, and came up with something I liked a lot better.
How did you guys feel about this tangle? Are there particular tangles you feel don’t work for you? What do you do when you run across them?
