Challenge 48 - Circle, Square, and Triangle

This week, the challenge at I am the Diva blog is hosted by Sue Clark who is a CZT (certified Zentangle teacher).  Sue has challenged us to create a tile using three basic shapes (circle, square, and triangle) combining them to create a string. I've done two tiles using these "strings".

Sue also encouraged us to try some tangles we haven't tried before.  On this first one, I did just that.  The center one was supposed to be wisket, but I just can't seem to get it right.  Then I also tried Phuds, which looked okay, but my wisket looked wonky so I decided to try another tile.



 This first tile is on a 5x5 tile.  I decided to make the second one on a smaller tile which is 4x4 inches.



For this tile, I also used the square, circle, and triangle string, and I also used Phuds.  The "boards" were something I just decided to add in (don't think I've seen a tangle like this before - it's probably been done by somebody, I just haven't seen it).  I like the cleaner look of this tile.  

That's my take on the challenge....what do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Comments are always appreciated!! Until next time....

I like them both, but I especially like the first one. It's neat the way you laid the three shapes directly on top of eachother - Nice

I really like both tiles. The second is a little simpler, which is nice, but the first has a lacier feel. Love your "boards" tangle. I don't think I've seen it anywhere before.

Fabulous Susan, I always have to enlarge them to see all the elements! It's another language though:)Glad you liked my little gift:)

The first one looks like a quilt square. I love the use of Phuds in both tiles - the black background really make it pop off the page!
