Tangle challenges March

Not much drawing going on this week. The weekend was relatively cool so that meant The Husband and I could get out into the garden and get some much needed maintenance done.

Here's a photo of Arthur supervising us emptying the two giant compost bins. We've ended up with well over 1 cubic metre of compost to spread around the garden and another couple of cubic metres of partially decomposed material that might turn into usable compost in a few months.




Diva challenge

This week it was a duotangle of Marasu and Molygon. Marasu is a tangle I use sometimes and quite like. Molygon, however, is a shape I'm not comfortable with and can never seem to get right.

Here's my first, unfinished attempt. Not good. 





I had another go tonight, which is a a couple of days later. This one I like a lot.





My third tile I started last night and finished this evening. I went back to the step outs and tried to follow the examples more closely. Not very original but sometimes that's what it takes to get a tangle working.





Made by Joey

The feature tangle this week was Icanthis. I added Ilana and Inapod. This week I kept the colour palette muted.



Have a great week.

Thank you for showing the process, there's a lot to learn from it. I like both the second and the third tile.

I too liked seeing how you progressed in making your Tangles. Nice work!

It is amazing sometimes to see the results of not giving up and going back to a pesky tangle to rework it until you are in control. Your progressively richer takes on the tangle show that. You've got it now! Nice work!
