Well Week #22, what shall we draw?
 
How about we tangle two of something?

Some examples might be:
 a string that creates two shapes (like string #110) or
a mirror image tangle (oh that sounds fun!)
or using tangles that have only two strokes?!

Include the guidelines that you chose to follow in the comments.

I'm trying to keep up with a very long "to do list" right now so I haven't be able to find much time for tangling but I do enjoy putting out the challenges and seeing what you are drawing!
Keep linking up my friends!

Oh boy, has your August calendar just filled up in a blink of an eye as well?
I can't believe that we're nearing the end of summer holiday already
...and that I haven't yet completed my challenge for last week!

wonderful season let's 

tangle a sun!

 The other night I was outside late at night and was amazed by the sky!  It was as though every star was lit up, I saw the constellations and even a shooting star!

So this week let's try
tangling a 5 point star

challenge #18 - b&w or colour?

I photocopied my last challenge before I coloured in the black so that I could also colour it in with my coloured pencils.  
Let me know which you prefer...

 black and white

 colour

weekly challenge #19


This must be a personal record for me, completing my challenge by noon on Monday!  

I decided to give the tangle Maryhill a try and wow what fun results it gives.  When I started drawing the lines I felt awkward and thought this doesn't flow at all!  But then as I relaxed into it, it started to come together.  It's also more forgiving that you would think.

I enjoyed shading it and could sit and play with it for hours.
So how do you know when to stop shading?
Do you think it's possible to over shade a piece?
Love to hear your thoughts,

For the busy days of summer I'm going to keep this week's challenge simple!
One guideline:
A monotangle of your favourite
tangle that generates an "optical illusion".

By this I mean tangles that take on a 3 dimensional look like:
or
(it's an opportunity to practice our shading too!)
They are all very cool, now to pick one!
~ joey ~
* note: I have offered just a few tangle possibilities, you may choose any tangle pattern that gives an optical illusion look.
