That's New To Me #3: V

A fellow Arizonan, Suzy Mosh, has posted a challenge to try a new (to you, anyway) pattern and  post the results.  She picks a random letter and you must choose a pattern starting with it.  This is her third weekly challenge (I missed the first two - sorry), so here goes on lucky #3!

After they ran that creepy TV show "V", the letter has never seemed the same, has it?  I used to associate it with velvet, violets, verdant green, that kind of thing.  Oh well, time for new thoughts on that letter!

I chose Vache 1 by Canadian CZT Geneviève Crabe.  It seemed like a good choice for tangelations, and now I wonder why I never used it before.  I'll add this to my pocket for future use now, as I like it. 

The pattern itself is based on cow spots, but not being a country girl, I couldn't verify that.  Somebody commented that it looks kind of like a map, which I can see.  Mine looks a little industrial with some fishy things going on.  Oh well... This was a very Zen, quiet drawing experience for me, so I count it a success!

  1. A good one combination! Reminds me of something very soft that holds some magic eggs. Maybe dragon's)) Really soft look, but strong.

    1. Oh, now I'm thinking what exactly would dragon eggs look like? Are they green? Hmmmmm...

  2. I see precious balls (gold, maybe?) locked and bolted in safes with glass fronts. Very nice all over effect!

    1. Thanks for setting the challenge. What a great way to push past your self-imposed limitations! After I finished, I kept thinking about those live traffic maps on GPS...

  4. Your tile looks very beautiful! I like the way you used Vache1 and your little black spots in it. Great :-)

  5. Lovely variation of Vache 1. I think I have used this tangle once and mine looked nothing like the one you did. Another tangle I need to revisit and play with.

  6. it's very cool looking. Vache is a hard one for me, I've never been able to make it look good, but yours here is terrific. It is map-like, with roads going all over the place, and hills between the roads. Like a country drive.

  7. I shied away from Vache, but like your interpretation and will certainly try it now. Nice tile.
