Pattern Mixer Challenge #20



Dear Tanglers!

this month marks the 20th Pattern Mixer! Wow! So for this special occasion I’ve got something special for you: I’ve asked a guest tangler to prepare this month’s Pattern Mixer. Um… actually, I asked my husband, Mark. But he was very enthusiastic and grabbed a tile and some pens right away. The result is quite stunning. And he’s also picked some lovely patterns for you:



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

I love those patterns and also the way he mixed them.

So here is Mark’s Pattern-Mixer:


By the way: Should you have an idea for great patterns to mix, let me know! I love a challenge! 🙂

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!
