"S"-Plorations: Playing with a basic stroke

A couple of weeks ago I was "playing" during some down time. Was somewhat inspired by Rick and Maria's newsletter about grid seeds. Was thinking about what would occur if you took one of the basic strokes and began playing with it. Pea-nuckle is such a pattern. The " S" is the basis of the tangle. I thought what else could be done with this stroke. I began playing. Here are some of the things that I came up with. Don't know that some of these have not been done before. If someone knows that they have, please let me know. The one in the lower right corner looks like something I have seen before, but am not sure.

The above is a page from my journal. These are the ones that I was at least marginally satisfied with the way they turned out. There are a couple of other possibilities that I have not come together yet. Plan on playing with it more and seeing what I can come up with. I took a close up of the flower just because it was small and hard to see. Below is a tile where I used one of the patterns. It was for this week's, #136, Diva Challenge. 


Would really be interested in seeing what others can come up with. If you come up with something, post a comment and let me know where I can see what you have done. Have to give credit to my sister and fellow CZT for the "S"-Plorations term. I sent some of the early ones to  her and that is what she called it when she responded. You can see her work at Tinkered Art Studio.

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

Go Tangle !!
