This week’s Diva Challenge #284 is to create a tile using only one tangle pattern, aka, create a “monotangle”. The selected tangle pattern is Trip0li, a mac n cheese tangle for the Diva, and I’m sure for many of us. The second night meditation using Tripoli was definitely one of the highlights of my teacher training.
But… although this is a favorite tangle, the question becomes how does one do something a little unusual with it for a challenge? There are many ways to fill the triangles after laying down the mosaic, but I had a tough time figuring out how to shape my mosaic to begin with. I began to play with it and actually made several tiles until I found the composition I liked best. Keeping the spacing between the triangles pretty even, and doing it in circular shape was enough of a challenge, and I decided to simplify the fills, after all.
Thanks for stopping by this week!
