Diva 213 - Traced Strings and Breaking News

Only one challenge this week - I've been extra busy (see below...)

Our Diva set an interesting challenge this week, which was to trace some shapes onto the tile to use as our string, then tangle as you wish.  I had fun with this, and found some things lying around, as it were.  Here I have used a plastic letter opener and a wine pouring spout. 

I decided to use all three tiles, and here is how they turned out.  No masterpieces, but fun to put your thinking cap on with the crazy placement.  I must say, I really love the Star Map pattern in black and white below.  I have never used it before, but with shading I think it is really cool!  On the list for go-to drama!

This one was just plain fun.  No rhyme or reason.

I tried Narwhal for the first time, and definitely need more work on it.  It is a little tricky to draw because I think the first spacers need to be farther apart.  I like how it looks on this tan tile.

So...I haven't wanted to jinx myself by speaking too soon...but...I am off to PROVIDENCE, RI for CZT 19!!!!!  Watch for posts - I will have my ipad so I will try to record some of the good stuff - assuming they don't make it top secret!

Signing out for now, but be back soon!


  1. Beautiful works! Very delicate and full of details.

  2. Okay, nice work, as always, but becoming a CZT? WOW! One of my students just got back herself from #18. Enjoy every minute and do look for the paradox staircase :)

    1. I'm so pumped! I leave tomorrow morning and just can't wait! I guess I'll have to find that staircase - Paradox is almost a religious experience!

  3. Wonderful tiles. Congratulations, have fun.

  4. Oh love that last one. Your beads are delicious. Have fun at CZT. What a pilgrimage.

  5. Wow! I love these. I really like what you've done with Star Map. It is one of my go to backgrounds but I've never thought of the variations you've made. I hope you are having a great time at the training.

  6. Wow, three stunning tiles and the second one keeps me coming back at it and look more. I LOVE that one.
    have a great time and tell us all about it when you're back.

  7. Oooh! Love your tiles this week, most especially the Narwal one, which is my own current favourite tangle. And such envy about your upcoming's my dream. Maybe one day!

  8. I love your tiles! Most the last one because of the colours!
    I wish you a grat time during your stay in Providence and great successes! I think this is a dream for all which are tangling seriously!
    Good luck!

  9. That is wonderful you are off to RI and CZT!!! Have a wonderful time!! Your tiles are fun ... what I LOVE LOVE is your Star Map in black and white together!! Just gorgeous - never seen that before :)

  10. Love all three tiles! But I generally love all of your work. You are another tangle artist that I look up to...there are several in this group that I watch as much as possible. Congratulations on going to become a CZT. I hope to be able to do that at some time in the future. Great work!

  11. These tiles are beauties, Antonine! I love how your work just seems to flow...the color on the last one is wonderful. And you are in RI now...I will have to enjoy it vicariously, tell us all about it soon.

  12. WOOHOO! Love your work. Enjoy divine Providence! c
