Weekly Challenge #139: UMT vXXI "8s Parte Dos" by Jane Eileen

It's been quite a while since I've participated in the weekly challenge with the Diva.  I'm on holiday and this week has been quiet and relaxing, so what better time than to do some tangling :)

This week is a UMT (Use My Tangle) called '8's Parte Dos' by Jane Eileen.  It's a bit tricky and I was ever so careful not to make a mistake, but somehow I did 2 joins incorrectly but I'm not one to start all over again - I like to work with what I have - so I changed it somewhat and joined the whole middle piece 'incorrectly' and hey a lovely pattern emerged.  What do you think?

In the top section I managed to use the tangle as close as possible to Jane's.  I added some flowers in the middle because I was in a flowery mood.

On the bottom I used one of Sandra Strait's patterns (sorry I cannot recall the name, its the swirly one) and added some Cayke and a few others such as Warts and Wobbles.

I'm having trouble with shading as the paper I am using seems to be very smooth but hey, it is what it is :)

Here's my version X 3.

Thank you for your visit and as always your comments are very much appreciated.  Have a nice day!


  1. All are lovely! Wonderful choice of tangles!

  2. That is amazing with the different colours! Great combination and nice blending of the tangles. I think your shading is fabulous!

  3. These are super Poppie, the tangle on the bottom of the picture looks like mini Christmas trees! It's getting cold here so that must make me think of Christmas.

  4. Glad to see you back again! The tile is beautiful, with or without color.

  5. Like your tiles. The middle section reminds me of stained glass, almost what you would see in a Tiffany lamp.

  6. Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment - apologies from me as the computer I am using is really old and slow and takes forever to load a page - I'll be back home in 4 weeks time :)


Thank you for your visit :)
