They were pretty challenging for different reasons and I learned a lot on what I like and what I don't like during the process.
Week 3 and Week 4- 52 tangles in 2015 - designed by Jane Monk, drawing by Alid@ (TweLoQ)
While Jane always shows the strings she uses, the first design was very challenging. The first try (the small one on the left) didn't end up with the right "plus pattern" in the center and other patterns are also not that great. But doing that allowed me to understand better the overall design and do better the second time (the big one on the right). I am very pleased about how that turned out!!
For the second one, I was happy that the string was not a big circle, however I realized I don't like too much empty space or just simple line filling, I really like using black to give a "checkerboard" effect, so I added a lot of that in my version compared to the original one by Jane. I am pleased of the result and I hope that next tangle will teach me even more things about myself :)
If you also like to make these kind of tangles, feel free to drop a comment below!
I would love to see your work!!
