Diva's challenge asked us to tangle white on black on found.
I felt like keeping it simple this time so I have drawn Maria's tangle N'zeppel with a white Gelly Roll pen and shaded it with a white China marker.

 When I saw the tangle Prestwood I immediately thought of one of those toothpaste ads with the perfect swirl of toothpaste on the brush so that's where I went with this.  Verdgogh makes nice toothbrush bristles doesn't it?! ;o)

Are you working on any tangle challenges this week?  
Come back on Friday and share them on my "Inside my Sketchbook" Link Up.

ps.  Oh and check out my new tangle - Delph! 
If you think it isn't a new pattern, please let me know!

joey's weekly tangle challenge #61

My challenge for the week: 

I chose a "coneflower string" with the following Tangles:

N'zeppel, Neuron, Nipa, Paushalov, Shattuck, Tipple, Fescu, Aura-Leah, Barber Pole, Chillon, Heartstrings, Cheesecloth and Knightsbridge.

Phew!  It doesn't seem like there's that many in there!
Keep tangling!

Delph . . .

I got a little side tracked when doing my challenge for this week.

The challenge is to:

Delphiniums are one of my favourite flowers so I started with that in mind.

Only the petals of a delphinium are much too small to tangle a pattern inside them!

BUT when drawing the delphinium I realized that it was a pattern in itself.
 Here are some photos to clarify what I'm talking about...

 photo of first drawing of delphinium:
mixed media sketchbook, watercolour pencil, prismacolor pencils

I tried playing around with it as a tangle.
Printable TanglePatterns.com practice sheets here.

Tried it in circle, fun!

And decided that it's totally workable as a pattern!

I haven't done any shading in the instructions but I did a little on the original (first photo) in colour.
This may already be a tangle so please let me know if you recognize it,
I don't want to step on anyone's toes.
Play with it and let me know what you think!

Now, I guess I had better get back to my challenge!
