Diva Challenge # 295: Reticula/Fragment 2

It has been a long time since I have been able to participate in a Diva Challenge. I miss them but just have not had the time. I had a little time and needed a break from what I call "production mode" as I have been focusing on things for the Winter Market that I have been participating in. This is a 7 week commitment for about 6 hours every Saturday. We are a little over half way done. Oh well I digress.

This weeks challenge is a Part 2. I did not participate in week 1. I had done a class on this before they were using the term fragments. It is fun to experiment and see what you can up with. I spent a little time working in my journal, experimenting with different fragments. I do not spent enough time doing this. Here is a picture from my journal as I was experimenting.





Last weeks challenge was to use a fragment. This week was to use an asymmetrical fragment and rotate it. It was the asymmetrical part that gave me the most difficulty. It seemed like most of the things I came up with were symmetrical. That is not really a problem, except it did not meet the criteria for the challenge. There are a couple that I will experiment with in the future but there are some that will probably just be put to rest. The single fragment in the upper right hand corner is the fragment I used for my tile. What I did in the top row is to mirror image it. In the next row, I inverted it and then mirror imaged it again. the result is the pattern you will see in the tile.

Well I hope you did not give up and are still reading this. Here is the tile that I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.



Besides the fragment, I was experimenting with a new tangle Noom. Have to work on keeping it consistent, which is not as easy as it would seem. The variance does not bother me a lot.


I have not looked at any of the things submitted on I am the Diva. Will try to look at as many as I can. If you have not been there, would encourage you to do so as there are usually some really great pieces of art. You can click on the link above to go there.

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

Go Tangle !!

  2. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has missed you and your tangles, Donald! Nice to have you back. I know a lot of people used the book for their fragments, but I think it's much more fun to come up with your own. I like how you mirrored yours. Noom isn't easy to keep even, that's for sure. Good thing that "consistent" isn't in a CZT's vocabulary LOL!

    1. Thanks. Hoping to participate a little more regularly. I know she is about to take a break here soon. Also hoping to get a little more consistent with Noom. Helps even with the shading.

  5. Thanks. Do not always have pictures of the things that I worked on. Sometimes is that I do not think about it until to late.
