'Golven' - Challenge on an egg shape
The latest Diva challenge is to try out a tangle pattern designed by another zentangle fan. This week the challenge is to use the tangle 'GOLVEN' by Mariet, who gives her instructions here.
I've started doing a number of tiles in the shape of eggs/ovals. Hopefully I'll have enough done so I can have a display for Easter. So this was a great design to put on an egg. After I got GOLVEN done I started looking through my idea book. Golven is the Dutch word for waves so when I came across the tangle for 'Fish Net', I thought it was appropriate. - And then I noticed that Fish Net is also a tangle designed by Mariet. How perfect!
This oval tile measures 3 1/2" at its tallest point. It was cut from poster board so it is very study. The white is Sakura Gelly Roll and the darker blue is colored pencil.
