I'm the Diva's Challenge Week #24

This week the challenge is to use stripes as a string. I thought that I'd use stripes in two directions.

I worked on my first tile and while I liked it, the tile seemed out of balance, crowded on one side and too empty on the other.  As usual, after I was done, I thought of a better or different way to put the idea forward.
Tile 1

Tile two has more empty space, less patterns on one side and more on the other.  I am quite pleased how it came out.

Tile 2
I'm going to try to tag all the different tangles in my pieces, but I don't always know the names of them. Some are variations of others that I've made up and some are known.  I've tagged the ones I know.  Hopefully, I'll get better at the names.


  1. These are stunning, JJ. They're both gorgeous tiles... my fave is the first. Very dramatic effect!! xo

  2. Awesome! I like the white space in the first tile.

  3. Very nice! Love the stripes going in different directions.

  4. This is really great!!! Your designs are so precise and it!

  5. These are wonderful and your lay out and placement are dynamic. Each level builds on the next. One is my fave also.

  6. Great tiles - love the balance and symmetry.

  7. I like them both....the top one looks like the cover of a book (an interesting one at that) and the bottom one is just very nice and clean while still maintaining good interest. You're awesome!!

  8. So like classic architecture! They are fabulous!
