And I will do it again! Next year, I'll design the second-annual Summer Tangle Challenge. I've already started a list of tangles and techniques. I liked that it was not only patterns but trends in tangling. I'll be more careful creating the list, though; this time, I had some duplicates. I also realized I had more "ribbon" tangles than "fillers." I'll keep the FB page and Instagram going for the challenge and get the list out earlier so more people can participate. And I might do mine in a Tangle-A-Day (TAD) calendar, as so many do.
It really was rewarding and inspiring to see people embrace the challenge and make it their own--so much creativity! Check out facebook.com/summertangleschallenge or search using the hashtag #summertangles2018 to see some of the amazing artwork.
Some of my own favorite tiles (due to intellectual property, I won't post other people's tiles here):
|I liked the shading of this tile, which made it looked rounded.|
|Inspired by Marguerite Samana's Delft Delights, this tile has a Gingham background,|
one of my new favorite tangles.
|Spoolies, sandswirl, and printemps|
|Zenith is the tangle of the day, but I liked the whole thing.|
|A Zen Gem Zendala|
|This Zendala has a Maryhill center.|
|Dex and Diva Dance, with dewdrops|
|I liked how this turned out, a bit of a different style for me, with contrasting|
large and small tangles.
|I don't usually use color, but when I do, it's a rainbow.|
|I had rushed to set up the schedule and accidentally repeated some tangles;|
those days became choose-your-own. For one day, I did a quilt-inspired tile with favorite
tangles I sometimes forget to use.
|All of the tiles (in an un-water-marked photo, because the mark|
somehow reduced the clarity of the whole thing.)
