This week the challenge from Laura at I am the Diva is to create a tangle with a single red thread running through it. This challenge is to help raise awareness of the mission of The Red Thread Promise. Our challenge was to create a traditional black and white tangle tile with a single red "thread" running through it.
I struggle with using color on my tangles. I love looking at other peoples tangles that color has been added to, but it never looks right when I do it. That's how I ended up with four different tangles!
I actually did all of these on 3.5 x 3.5 which is the traditional size for a Zentangle, but not the size I generally work with. This is the first tile I did. Definitely didn't like it (and probably shouldn't have posted it! LOL!). It just looks weird!
This second tile is a bit better. I love the dimension I got on this one, but I still wasn't satisfied.
I think this third one is my favorite of the four tiles. I drew one large circle with a red pen, then added circles in each quadrant of the red circle. Then I used light and dark tangles on each side of the red circle.
I'm not sure where I was going with this one, but decided I'd go ahead and post it. Maybe I should have left the flowers off?
Just throwing this last piece in so I can ask a question. Is this a tangle that someone has already drawn? I did this while messing around with my tangles, and thought I had come up with a new design, but it might already be out there and I just don't know it. If anyone knows if it's a new one, let me know and I'll post directions about how I drew it. I used it in the fourth tile above and colored in the centers.
Thanks so much for stopping by! As always, your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
