Diva Challenge 173 - Redux, Remix, Revisit your comfort tangle...

This week's challenge has been issued by Sharla Hicks, a guest over on I am the Diva this week as Laura has been at the 15th CZT Seminar....and I'm looking forward to hearing more about that later on.
Sharla had a great suggestion - revisit a tangle you know well. Mix it up, change it - do something different!

This is not my forte...however, I decided to revisit possibly the very first tangle I ever did. Betweed. I was lucky to be browsing one day last September, when I came across Maria Thomas on YouTube demonstrating Betweed...and I was hooked from that moment on!

Another pattern that I have always done is very similar to Flux but with 'extra' bits. So today, I have tried to mix the two together - something I haven't done before as I am usually quite happy with tangles as they are and have never really practiced the art of tangleation! And it's fun...maybe I'll do it again sometime.

'Befluxed'!


I stuck with pen and pencil on paper but here is my Reduxed, Remixed and Revisited attempt.

    1. Thank you Sharla, it's lovely of you to pop by and say so - and it's all thanks to your great challenge for us! I have never attempted to put two tangles together at all so I'm really pleased with my first attempt...I hope it won't be my last either.
