Shattuck vs Tripoli


A duotangle this week and Shattuck vs Tripoli are the lucky ones.
For as long as I tangle (2011) I love Shattuck and use it all the time, but I never use Tripoli for the simple reason that I cannot master it.
So yesterday evening I tried again and a miracle happened: I can draw it now!!! So relieved, such a joy :-)

I found the combination of the two tangles a bit hard and my tile became some dull, but after giving it some contrast with blue, white and black I think it's much better.


The next tile I made for a guest in our hospice; I did not get a change to give it to her, so I thought to show it here as a tribute to a very special lady I met.























Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you leave me a comment; I do appreciate that a lot. Work created by fellow tanglers can be seen at 'I am the diva'.

Blessed be!
Annemarie

  4. Eens je Shattuck beet hebt is het een heel fijne tangle om te tekenen en dat heb je beslist mooi gedaan in de tile voor Laura maar ook de andere tile vind ik heel bijzonder!

  5. Goede beslissing om blauw, wit en zwart toe te voegen, zo is het een mooie tile geworden. De tile voor de gast is prachtig, jammer dat je haar er niet mee hebt kunnen verrassen.

  9. It's so satisfying when a tangle we've been struggling with suddenly falls into place. As you've demonstrated here, sometimes simple is just fine. Your string makes it unique. That's a lovely tribute you dedicated to your hospice friend.

  10. Glad that you now feel comfortable with Tripoli. I have always liked it and use to use it a lot. Shattuck is also one of my favorites. Like your tile. Some times the simplest things are better. The only two that I can think of that would have very unique ways of combining these two tangles are Helen Williams and Michelle Beauchamp.
