Weekly Challenge 177: "Truffle by Caroline Broady, CZT"
Happy July, fellow tanglers! Caroline here, from CZT 11. I am really excited for the opportunity to guest-write on the Diva’s blog. I figure this is a golden opportunity to finally publish my tangle, truffle. I actually developed this pattern at my CZT training seminar in June 2013, inspired by some wallpaper at the Hotel Providence.
My challenge to you is (quite simply) to try out truffle. There is a lot of room for tangleations, so I hope you will have fun.
I start with a sinusoidal curve in pencil as a string for a guideline, but feel free to plot points freehandedly. A straight row even would probably work.
When I use truffle, I like to leave an open space in the dots (like an “O”) and fill in every other section with another tangle. Border tangles like onomato and shattuck work well.
I used Golden High-Flow fluid Acrylics and a white uni Posca pen on watercolor paper to make this ZIA.
Happy tangling! :)

If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will put it in the slideshow. (send submissions to: weeklychallenge at mail.com) [not gmail, just mail]. I just ask that you put in the subject line: Challenge # ________
The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine. - although to be honest the deadline is pretty forgiving.
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
