The basis of her challenge is her love of mandalas. When she was at the CZT seminar they discussed tangle plates, which is really a mosaic or arcs and when you put 4 tiles together, they form a plate. You can get as symmetrical and as intricate as you want. She did 4 tiles but indicated that it was not necessary to do 4 for the challenge. You could do only one.
I like mandalas also and have about 100 that I have done over the years. I have not done the mosaic style of this challenge. Was not sure that I was going to participate due to time and I knew that I would not be able to do 4 tiles. My intent was to do one tile. It is similar to the stripes challenge that was done a couple of times. Well when I was ready to start, I found out that I did not have a full size tile. I had some Bijou tiles. I only had two of them. Which I decided to use. So mine is a "broken plate".
As a time saver, I decided to do the same tangles on similar rings. Here are the two tiles that I completed.
Tangles used: Tipple, Cubine, Hibred, Meer, Bird on a Wire
Shading done with HB pencil
Here are the two together to form my "broken plate" ( see the jagged line along the bottom?)
I have only seen a few of the pieces posted. Those are ones that show up in my feed list. I plan on trying to look at them over the next couple of days. Would strongly recommend that you go and look when you have the chance. You can do so by clicking here on I am the Diva.
Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.
Go Tangle !!
