I skipped out on Diva’s “moving” challenge because I prefer to do my tangling while sitting still. But this week’s challenge, “circles” was right in my wheelehouse (see what I did there?)
I started with this for my string:
The outermost ring is a CD — the template I usually use for the Zendala things I do obsessively and that I’ll get around to posting someday. The other circles are various other round things lying around — a toy cookie from my kids’ play kitchen, the inner circle of the CD, one of those plastic baby ring-stacker rings. So that was fun. Rather than doing any specific tangles, I decided to do a variation of Stricles: I drew a wobbly sort of grid across it, then filled in the cells with various solids and stripes — and one column of Nipa.
I left it unshaded for now. I might go back and shade some more later, but I kind of like the plain look so far.
The focus-tangle for this one is a cool little thing called “Pearly” that I just encountered. The pearls reminded me of Purk, always a favorite of mine, and the star shape of the string made me think of Arukas and Auraknot. I also used a tangleation of Pand I’ve worked up that I call Rzr.
