The challenge this week is to try a new tangle pattern - it's called 'Hitched' from Heidi Sue. I had a lot of fun playing with variations. We've finally started getting some snow (along with incredible cold) so I was thinking snowflakes when I did this. Hitched can be done in a curve but it's easiest to do it in a line or border. So it worked well to form my snowflake. I started with a white gelly roll pen and added blue colored pencil for shading. The picture below shows an early stage. I had the basic pattern in but I knew I needed to keep going. I added a few more tangleation details to Hitched.
Then I decided to add something to the outer areas. SuzyMosh has started a challenge called "That's new to me". You can find her blog here. She is encouraging us to find tangle patterns we haven't used before, and add them to our work. This week they are to start with the letter 'T'. I found a tangle pattern called 'Tami". I used a tangleation of it around my zendala.
I took this picture late at night with the desk lamp. So the quality of the picture isn't too good. Sorry!
