Pattern Mixer Challenge #19



Dear Tanglers!

welcome, everyone! You know, I find it quite difficult to pick good patterns for mixing every month. The plan was originally to just pick them randomly. Maybe I should go back to that. Yikes! 🙂 But that will have to wait til next month, because today I’ve found two patterns that lend themselves to tons of fun combinations.

Today’s patterns are:


Knot Ricks

First time for the challenge? You can find the rules here.

Here’s my tile for this month:


By the way: Should you have an idea for great patterns to mix, let me know! I love a challenge! 🙂
Also, in case you’re wondering about how I did the shadows on my tile, they’re done with the Fabrico Pen. You can use it to shade on fabric, but also on top of white pen marks.

ATTENTION, please! While all tiles submitted in the last months were stunningly beautiful, there seems to have been some confusion about pattern mixing. Just drawing two patterns next to each other on a tile is called a Duo Tangle (and it can definitely be worth your while), but when we mix patterns, we go one step further. Pattern mixing means to merge two tangles, to intertwine them or even create a new tangle from the combination. I’ve drawn up a few examples for you here. Mixing patterns is not easy and you might even want to collect a few ideas or do a few sketches first. But it’s a real booster to yor creativity and it’s – well, a challenge!
