Stripes


Stripes. There are many tangles that work well in the stripe category. I enjoyed this challenge the first time around so I was game to go again. I looked through the many tangles I have in my book and there were SO many choices! Then I looked in the back of my book where I have just the tangles that I have named myself. Well, there were more than enough stripe tangles right there! So the tangles shown here are all under the tangle pattern gallery tab on my blog.

Kiev
Coil
Vigne
Ditto

I wanted to do it on toned paper so I could add both highlights and shading. This is actually my hand colored paper that approximates the color of the renaissance tiles. I normally would use the Renaissance tiles but I knew I might be aggressive with some of my shading so I opted for my hand colored tile which can take a little more abuse. I used the Micron black pen, the brown pen, the white gelly roll, colored pencils in white and brown and my regular pencil.

  4. Very pretty. Those aren't tangles that I would have thought of first when doing stripes, but they really look great together and feel very light and airy.

  11. There's something really elegant about it! I think part of it is because you allowed for space between each stripe so we can really appreciate the fullness of each pattern.
