Diva Challenge 175 - UMT Crux

I have been so busy doing non-tangle things recently that I haven't had time to do many challenges - but how could I possibly not do the Diva's Weekly Challenge - especially on UMT (Use My Tangle) week?

I love this tangle and was tempted in many ways to do something creative and clever with it...tempted, but in the end (OK, after several dreadful attempts at cleverness that looked less than clever at the end!) I decided it was more important to master the basis tangle. And it's lovely enough just as it is, I think.

Black on white for a change. Great fun. Thank you so much, Laura (I am the Diva) and Henrike Bratz who is the creator of Crux.

    1. Thanks Zoe - it was a very straight forward approach....the mystical must come from the tangle itself!! Axxx

    1. My practice attempt was quite good but then I had several where I messed up - and although in Zentangle, this is supposed to be OK...there are times when you know yourself that it's just 'not'!! This simple version was fun and theraputic to do. Thanks for leaving me this comment, Diane. Axxx
