Diva Challenge #132: "Non-Domonotangle"

My first reaction when I saw what this challenge was, was to take a pass. I looked at the tangle that was chosen and thought a little more and decided that since it was a grid based tangle that might make it a little easier. Did not think I could tackle an organic flowing tile with my non-dominant hand. I may not have thought that through completely.  Drawing the string was challenging enough and maybe should have been enough to send me running for the hills. But I pushed ahead. I did remember from when I broke my wrist a number of years ago and I had to learn to print with my left hand that there were certain rotations that just seemed easier to do. So I set out and did have to focus and found myself turning the tile more than I usually do to be able to make the rotations. The more I continued, I was finding new challenges. The grid lines were a little tough. But in some ways I think that trying to do the fill was even tougher. It required a steady hand which I definitely do not have with my left hand. All that being said, I have to say that I was not disappointed with the end result. It definitely took longer to do than it would have with my dominant hand, but I am pleased with it. I hope that you enjoy it.

I have only looked at few other submissions, mostly from people whose blogs show up in my reader. I plan on going to I am the Diva and looking at all of the great art work. Would recommend that you do also.

Go Tangle !!  


  1. I do like your tile, you managed to do it quite well with your left hand. Even the black dots are quite steady.

  2. and you even did a zoom-in bubble! I'm impressed!!!! love it!

  3. Love your design and I am sure it wasn't easy. Nice!

  4. You do well with your non-dominant hand. I think your tile looks great. The slightly, and I do mean slightly, waves in the lines look like a design element!

  5. Nice looking tile. I had a similar experience with the rotations.

  6. Look at those tangleations and shading....your tile is a slam dunk!
