Diva Challenge #186

Okay, so you know when you start working on a project and halfway through you step back and say, "Um, who did this?"  In contrast to the clean, restrained pictures I've made for the last few weeks, this one went all wacky on me.

First, I had an hour to start the challenge, and I didn't have a circular tile.  That's right, I'm now the girl who was asked to bring brownies but shows up with chips and salsa.  Then, I didn't like my leaves, and I vowed to use only three tangles but I couldn't get enough contrast and then I had to continue the tile in the early morning hours before work and so my tile is all, "I was drawn by a crazy person."

There you have it.  What I could use (if you feel like commenting) is some constructive criticism on how to make the busy tiles look right.  You know, some of my most favorite tiles done by NOT ME are full of different designs and ups and downs and movement and, well, wackiness.  But they look RIGHT.  So give me comments like, "Don't put those two designs next to each other because blabla..." and things like that.  And if you don't want to deal with it, I don't blame you.  I wouldn't either.

Weekly Diva Challenge # 185

My new favorite tangle is Phicops.   It's ALIVE!  I love it love it love it.  My Diva Dance needs a little work, but I'm getting the hang of it.

Comments from the family included, "A butterfly?"  "Cuts of meat," and "It's not my favorite."  But I thoroughly enjoyed creating it and I didn't rip it up.  :)  Thanks for the challenge and thanks for the inspiration.
