many, many moons ago, Dutch Tangler Nyske (a.k.a. MoonOwl) suggested I use the two patterns Leaflet and Fluxogee for the Pattern-Mixer. Today I finally got around to trying them and they do indeed go well together! This is due to the fact that they are both based on a so called “ogee” grid – which looks a bit like honeycomb. It’s a bit tricky at first, but you do get the hang of it with a bit of practice.
So! Let’s see what you can do! 🙂
Today’s patterns are:
First time for the challenge? You can find the rules here.
Here is my Pattern-Mixer for this month:
(OH, in case you’re wondering why my tile is mostly empty… I figured, this month’s Pattern Mixer would make a wonderful border. Don’t know what I’ll do with it yet, but I’ll be sure to show you the result!)
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!
