I have been tangling for about a year and a half now and I am pretty confident in my skills. I can create tangles, execute tangles, do Zendala's, add color...blah blah blah. Tangleations however, have never been my strong point so this challenge was going to be a REAL challenge for me.
In one of Sandy Steen Bartholomew's books she has a page devoted to tangleation hybrids. It is setup in a grid format and she puts 4 tangles on one side of the grid and 4 tangles on the other side of the grid and then she combines them to create these amazing tangle "hybrids". I have stared at that page in awe many times but have never felt comfortable enough to tackle something like that. The second I saw this challenge I thought of that page. The tangleations I have drawn below are more free form variations than hybrids but it's still all the same idea.
|Tangle: Cadent tangleations|
The tangleation with the teardrop shapes was created by using teardrops instead of circles for the grid. Then I drew a large teardrop across each square and colored the whole thing in with black. Its amazing that the black can totally "erase" the original tangle. The tangleation that runs through the middle of the tile was created with a base of triangles. Then I split each square in half diagonally to create two additional triangles and used a little line work to fill it in. The final tangleation was created with a base of spirals and some creative coloring. I think this is my favorite.
