Crux

The Diva's challenge this week, #175 was to use the tangle Crux by Henrike Bratz. This was a new tangle to me so I tried a couple of different versions first before getting into my "tile". This tangle has lots of variation possibilities, some because I just put the line in the wrong place!

You can probably tell that I like Maria's style of "tucking" her tiles into the paper.... I just LOVED being able to look through her art journals at CZT!

For my tile, I decided to use a pencil grid. I really like how it turned out. Now I'm wondering, did I even need that grid at all? Might have to go play some more!

  1. Beautiful tile. I just love it. The Rain going over parts and the way the pattern swoops so gracefully out and beyond the grid are to die for.

  2. Your "tuck" is fun and I think your tiles are delightful. Wasn't looking at Maria's work and even better, watching her tangle amazing? Good times!
