After a crazy Christmas season, I flew from Toronto back to Taiwan on Boxing Day night. It was a different kind of crazy in Taipei. Since I sold my home in Taipei, this time I stayed in Taipei for 10 days and had to meet all of my friends. The good news was that since I came back Taiwan, my inspiration for tangling came back too. I tried to draw some tiles between the different meetings every day.
I am in Pingtung, the southernmost city of Taiwan where I originally came from, right now. It is very peaceful here; a good place to start a new challenge for a new year.
For me it is amazing: Laura’s weekly challenge is already 5 years old! As a relative new participant, I feel 5 years is forever :p Laura said that this week is “only” for Diva Dance and Auraknot, which means the weekly challenge is a DuoTangle - a term coined here at the Diva Challenge that refers to a tile that is created with ONLY TWO tangles and their tanglations.
It’s interesting, because I just helped my friend, who had class with some CZTs for a while but wanted to learn more patterns, these two patterns. That's how I got this tile. I drew the single pattern on the tile, or Bijou, to show her. I am not CZT right now, but I hope to become one in June LOL
Diva Dance is one of my favorite patterns, especially when it is on the Renaissance tile. I hope you all like it.
本週挑戰是DuoTangle，一種流傳在這個挑戰的專有術語，意思是用兩個指定圖樣畫，只有這兩個！除了基本五元素外，任何具象的圖樣都不加，說來也厲害，即使如此，大家還是畫出各種不同的作品，真是太神秘了。本週挑戰指定的是Diva Dance(因為主辦人的部落格名稱為”I am Diva”)和Auraknot(和主辦人名字Laura押韻)，還真剛好，都是最近在畫的。
