The Diva Challenge this week is to create a tangle in honor of upcoming "Coming Out Day" which is Oct 11...news to me, and I have a gay person in my family!
And therefore, this is a topic near to my heart. Coming out can be VERY difficult for people, and my relative was no exception.She agonized for a long time, glum, troubled, depressed, and anxious. When she did come out, no one was surprised, and she suddenly was carefree, joyous, light, and sweet. Coming out set her free.
My first tangle was rainbow shaped,and I colored it in
Patterns used: Leaflet, phicops, flord, fiore, something with a flower in a grid, ditto, and my first use of Bateek.
The second one I decided to use tangles starting with L, G, B, and T.
And, I think my subconscious did this...right there, next to the betweed is a tangle pattern I developed, and I call it Hitched.
Get it? Same sex marriage is in the news big time right now, and I put HITCHED in my LGBT tangle! hahahaha!
Oh, there is also some fescu growing up out of the ends of the Girdy. Also, a variation on Bales that I have been playing with...it starts with the negative space of Bales, and ends up with circles kind of dominating. Anyway, it was another B pattern, but it really looks nothing like Bales at all...oh well.
At any rate, I had fun with this, and I actually do like how it looks.
