When I saw that using these two tangles was the challenge, I wanted to use what Rick did as a starting point. By this I mean trying to interlace them. This, for me is always a challenge but one that I enjoy seeing done. I have to admit that I am not one to use it much myself. I had a couple of ideas but decided to keep it simple on the first attempt, Maybe later I will try to do something with more of a circular string. Part of my decision was based on the time factor as well, When I try to interlace things I have to think about it more. Even then sometimes it does not turn out all that well. Anyway, here is what I came up with, I used a Zendala tile for this one. I hope you enjoy it.
Tangles used: Paradox, Diva Dance
Shading/highlighting done with graphite pencil
The one thing that continues to be something I continue to work on is the shading. Not sure about this one. Not sure if I used too much or not. Tried to keep a minimal amount and blended with a blending stump. I think what gets in the way is the expectation that I have, even if that is not real specific.
