Diva's Weekly Challenge #255

"Ghosts of Tangles Past". This week, the Diva invited us to rectangle a tile from our archives. This was one of my first tiles, dated 3/1/14, prior to taking any CZT classes.I chose a tangle that I always loved, but never used again. Sprangle, by Suzanne Davis, reminds me of gingko leaves, and all the organic lines of art nouveau. I'm so happy that the Diva brought me back to revisit this piece.



And now...



I unintentionally used a sepia pen, but warmed it up a bit with the brown. I debated adding the Diva Dance, but decided to go with the white space instead.

Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to seeing everyone's work. Feel free to leave a comment or suggestion. I learn so much from you!

  4. As beginners, we often were afraid of white space. After tangling a while, we can see the value of leaving spaces untouched. Lovely tile!

    1. I totally agree with you, Jean, about the fear of white space! I'm always reminded of my first grade teacher telling us, "If I give you paper, I expect you to fill it up!" Thank you for visiting!

  5. So great! I love both tiles, an I see that the second oneis much more relaxed! White spaces!! We would not have the courage earlier, am I right?

  6. Both tiles flow well, but your second one is much more confident and I love the white space you have left. Nicely done!

  8. Aha, another tangle that I don't know. I'll have to go check out Sprangle now. I also like both tiles, but I can see the increased sophistication in the second one, underscored by your willingness to let there be white space. It works very well---and your use of sepia and brown just proves there are no mistakes in Zentangle. ;-)
