Diva Challenge #167: Duo Tangle Well/Punzel

This week's Diva Challenge is a Duo Tangle challenge. You are suppose to use only these two tangles to create your tile. I have used both of these tangles before, but am not sure that I have ever used them together. I did want to try some new things on this. After the tangle Well was released, I saw some very cool variations on Helen William's blog a little lime. She does such a great job at taking tangles and setting them free by doing a free-hand version. she did this with Well. She has step outs and a video posted on her blog. To see them, you can click here. I also like the way Shelley Beauch makes tangles trickle off. I tried something from both of them. Well was difficult to trickle off from the grid. I was not ready to tackle Helen's free form Well and used her circle grid method. Not sure if it would have worked better to have this trickle off. Oh well, it is about the process not the end product. Here is what I came up with. I hope that you enjoy it.



I kept this simple and used the traditional process. I used a micron, and a pencil. I did not use a string.  I hope I will have some time to look at the other things posted, and to make comments. May be a little tight as I will be attending the CZT Hideaway the next couple of days. Looking forward to having a good time working on things and also hopefully learning a few new things I can use in some classes. I would encourage everyone to go to I am the Diva and look at the great pieces that some very talented people have created. 

Thanks for visiting.  As always comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!

  2. Donald your tile is lovely!! I too, stayed with the traditional form of Zentangle for this challenge!! I liked mine but I think I am getting use to either adding color or doing more Zia tiles than the traditional! I guess You just gotta go with what moves you at the time! Anyway, Yours is lovely!!! Have a great time at CZT ! Oh, someday I hope to be able to afford to go get certified!! Someday!!!!!! Share Humanity :0)

  5. This is lovely, Punzel looks light and delicate and Well done two ways, they look so different. It is such a versatile pattern.

  7. The trickling looks very convincing and as if the squares were light as feathers and just floating away in the breeze. Hope you have a lovely time!

  8. Donald this is a really great tile. Love how you've used Well in two different ways and the trickling effect is so effective. Linda x

  11. Hi Donald,
    Your tile is great. Besides the very lovely Punzel, I really love the way Well breaks up. The Well on the other side is also very nice, though - not to neglect it - and overall the tile just has a perfect, pleasing balance.
    Thanks for your comment on my tile, too BTW!
