I love this -- love the heaviness at the center and the lightness around it. The touch of color is brilliant.
Wonderful variations, and a great choice of companion tangles. This one is tricky, but you make it look far easier than it is! Does the tangle on the right have an independent identity? It's clearly related to Sankegg, but yet is different enough that it might need its own step-outs and name.
Re the tangle on the right I was thinking that I could vary this tangle with the PDF logo so that is how it started then I attached some of the triangle shapes in between them. It needed something in the triangle shapes so I just added lines and that separated them. Some of the PDF shapes looked like flowers so I added the lines on them. Some of those shapes had small triangles in the centers so I blackened them in and the others I just added black dots for centers so they looked like 3-petal flowers. I found the tangle impossible to do with the instructions so I just made the triangles smooth on the sides. The top left hand corner looked like champain so I added the bubbles and the colour.
Hi Amy in TNIts funny you say that about the tangle, I actually posted this same variation due to inspiration from the original Sankegg. I had been working on that pointy triangle shape for months, my inspiration was from a really cool school folder, but couldn't figure out how to make it flow more easily until Maria Vennekens posted step outs for Sankegg then it hit me how to draw this tangle. So I named the new tangle after Maria Vennekens, called Vennekegg. I posed directions for the tangle I did on my blog which the directions are different and can be used as a border too. Happy Tangling ladies.
Aaaah maybe that's my problem - I'm trying to follow the instructions for this pattern - you tile is delightful it feels like they are floating all over the page. Love it!
You made a beautiful tile! I'm still struggling with this tangle.
Gosh this tile is stunning, I am struggling with doing the angles on this pattern but the way you have drawn it, looks great. I will have to have a go at the pattern this way.
I love the way you've done this tangle - especially fond of the champaigne glasses - yum!
This one was a hard one for me!! The step out was hard to duplicate. You did a great job! Love how you handled it.
great job. perfect with the flowers :)
Nice variations. Your lines are so precise. Great tile!
The tripoli and sankegg along with many variations just makes this piece so beautiful. I love how much you have done in this tile!
I notice we did the same weird variation of the tangle Sankegg - How odd, great minds must think alike. Wonderful variations with the other little embellishments, GREAT WORK!I gave Maria Vennekens credit and named the tangle after her since it was really her inspiration that got me thinking how to improve the shape I had been working on for so long.
Lovely, very light and airy. Tripoli is the perfect companion tangle. Love your playful variations to Sankegg.
Wow! great variations!
