Diva Challenge #253: "New Tangle: Molygon"

Although it was the first Monday of the month, the UMT challenge was an opportunity to focus on a new tangle from HQ. I actually got to teach this to a class before it was released to the public. I do not think that has ever happened before. I like this tangle just be cause it is open to so many variations. I have not looked at what others have done with it but am guessing there were a lot of interesting posts. The tangle is Molygon. It uses simple strokes but you can get complicated depending on what you do with it. I almost did not get this posted. I started it early in the week and then it just sat there, partially completed for most of the week. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.

Tangles used: Molygon, and Bales. Shading with 2B graphite pencil

This is one of those tiles that has grown on me. As I stated above, I started this early in the week but never seemed to have time to finish it. It got down to yesterday and I knew I was going to have to do something if I was going to get it posted. I struggled deciding what to do and finally decided to just do something and let it go where it wanted. Was not even sure how I wanted to shade Bales. Decided to just go with some simple shading.

I hope to get to look at as many of the posts as I can. Not sure how many I will be able to post a comment on their blogs. I try to as much as I can. If you have not all ready, would strongly recommend that you go to I am the Diva and look at the great post. I would also encourage you to try it yourself, even if you do not post it. This is a fun tangle to play with.

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

Go Tangle !! 


  1. I love your tile. Very simple lines. I just got mine posted too. Just finished it a few minutes ago, in fact. Mine got much busier. I'm still trying to simplify and add more open space. (sigh) :-D Still learning (that's a lifetime thing).

  2. Love your Molygon Catherine Wheels floating on the latticework. This one would be good for fireworks night.

  3. Nice use of Molygon, Donald. They just shine in front of the Bales. I really like this new tangle and have enjoyed seeing what everyone came up with.

  4. Great tile! It's got a lot of dimension. Well done.

  5. I really like your Molygon tile. Your Molygon pieces just seem to hover over the Bales background. Very nice shading on this one.

  6. I like he aura's around Molygon and the shading of Bales is great.
