Diva Challenge #192-UMT (Use My Tangle)

This week we have a guest Host for the IamTheDiva Challenge. Cris Letourneau. The challenge is to user Cris's Tangle, "Seton." Cris and Daughter worked on creating a Step-Out of a pattern in the Window of her Church, Seton Parish.

In practicing this Pattern, I started to work with the design a bit and came up with a tanglation of the original pattern. It was a very fun pattern to work with and it presents a lot of potential for a wide range of design experimentation. Thanks Cris. I just bought your book, "Pattern Play" two days ago, and it was great seeing your step-out for Seton on page 62. A fortuitous and timely purchase.

Stats:
1- Tile 3.5 " square, Tiepolo stock.
2- Pens: Sakura Micron Pigma.01, Black, Red.
3- Colored Pencils- Blick Studio, 72 colors (222063-0729)

This weeks Challenge was a fun one.

  2. Absolutely fabulous. The colours blend well together, and your tangleation of seton is brilliant. My first glimpse of this I thought I was looking at a professionally made coaster.

  5. This is such great work, David! At first I hardly recognized the pattern. Your tangelation of it is very harmonious and that shade of red is really ... generous is the word that comes to me. It's deep and warm and glowing, do you see what I mean?
    I had promised myself to work your way through this challenge but I haven't even started. Your tile is great inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

  6. This is beautifully fluid and takes away the need to stick to the grid. The origins are based on a church window and the colours in your tile seem to be a homage to stained glass. You have gone above and beyond the brief. It's glorious.

  7. It's a lovely tangleation David! It is so flowy and natural. It reminds me a bit of ceramic tile from Morocco.

  15. Wow, David. Just Wow! A beautiful example of successful thinking outside the box. As I look at everyone's work, I am more and more intrigued by the possibilities presented by Seton.
