Superimposed strings

This week we have another guest challenger, Aimée Belair CZT, and her challenge is to superimpose two strings to create a new string to tangle. I was a little concerned that I would have very tiny sections, and I often did, but remember that the string is a Guideline, not a Rule.

I had one tile with a very angular string already drawn, so I simply added a very loopy curvy line overall. I wanted to use my two new tangles, Windfarm and Morse, so I decided to use all my own tangles.
Tangles: Morse, Screen, Seljuk, Windfarm, Zedbra, and
a variation of Tipple that I sometimes call Caviar.

For the second tile I simply did a script style "M" and superimposed a script style "B". (Letters are an easy go-to if you're stuck for a string.) See that very bold stripy column on the left? Next to it is a really interesting column. That's the tangle Well! How cool is that?!?
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Crescent Moon, Paradox, Tipple, Well

  2. I love these both - and the idea of using letters is so good. There is wonderful movement in these - especially the second.

  3. they both look great - i'm intrigued with the initials idea - i may give that a go - yours looks really cool! and i really like all the negative space in that first one - it looks reflective - almost like a mirror

  6. They are both great. I really like the first one. I have been seeing "Windfarm" all over the place and was wondering where it came from and where to find it - now I know! And that "Morse" looks totally awesome. I am off post haste to see your step-out.

    1. They're both quite recent so just scroll back a little ways in the blog posts and you should find them.

  11. Both tiles are gorgeous. Love your use of whitespace. I will have to add your tangle patterns Windfarm and Morse to my tangle reference sketchbook.

  13. Wow, they're different in a very nice way! I think I like the first one best, but it's hard to choose.

  14. These both are wonderful!! That top one, my eye keeps going round and round ... spinning in and out of the white space. It is like a puzzle ... I am going to have to look up your tangles! Your 2nd one is so graceful and lovely ... the white space against the tangles really make both work ... in different ways!

    1. Thanks Diane. I find that leaving areas blank sometimes can be quite effective.
