This week the challenge from The Diva and Maria of Zentangle is to create a tile using only one tangle: Paradox. What I love most about Paradox is that it looks so very complicated when you see it, but actually creating Paradox it really quite simple. Hey! I bet that is why the tangle is called Paradox. (Wow, am I quick.) I have tried a tile or two using just Paradox before and while I've been perfectly happy with them, I wanted to try something new. I had wondered what they triangles of Paradox would look like when attaching the points in the center, like a Trivial Pursuit game piece, but have not tried it before. So, when I saw this weeks challenge, I decided to go for it.
I started with the main grouping in the center and then added those at the edge. After I got them all filled in, I liked the tile well enough, but thought there was far too much empty space. I thought about just blacking out the white but then I changed my mind. I was afraid that the Paradox would get lost. I decided to add another triangle to the "circles" to connect them all together. I like how it turned out. It sort of looks like a complicated piece of jewelry.
I have another tile that I started before this one but I didn't like where it was going. If I finish it, I'll post it here later.
