Challenge 41 - Duo Tangles

This week's challenge from Laura at I am the Diva blogspot is to do a tile or Zentangle inspired piece that uses only these two tangles; Jonqal and Opus. These are official Zentangle patterns...neither of which I've ever practiced. So...it's about the process...really.  Can't say that I'm overly thrilled with how these two piece turned out, but I definitely have a better comfort level with these tangles.  




This is actually the first tangle I drew.  I used a 4x4 tile..no string to start me with.  I just started with the center swirl which is called Opus.  Then I added Jonqal around it.  



This was my second attempt at the two different tangles. This is a 4 x 4 tile also.  I basically did the same thing here....first I put in the Opus tangle, then added the Jonqal inside it.  I do like this one the best. 

What about you?  Which is your favorite?

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I truly appreciate all your fabulous comments! Until next time...

♥ Hugs! ♥

I did several of these as well - I found the 2 patterns strangely addicting. I really like your jonqal in the first one, the way you made it look like raised ropes or something. In the second one opus sings - I love the tangelations of it!

Love what you did with the jonquals in the second!

I like how you finished the centers of Opus in the first one and the variation of Opus in the second.
