the J challenge WITH white space

Suzy Mosh's New to Me Challenge this week was to use J tangles and the Diva's guest CZT Sandy Hunter's  challenge was to leave plenty of white space/negative space. Turns out, the tile I made for the Mosh challenge has lots of white space! ha!

A Swirling Breeze

I used a couple of patterns from Jumu and Jelly Roll. Jumu is easy to add variety to, and the way it's made reminds me of Lolo, which is one of my favorites. At any rate, I kept Jumu simple, and when I'd got done with three strands of it, I knew there needed to be something to balance it, and JellyRoll seemed like a good one. Turns out, I was right. I like how they look together and I like the white I decided to make this one piece for two challenges.

However, I want to show off a mooka piece I played with and liked a LOT, and plan on exploring some more and possibly make it a second entry in the diva challenge.

 Mooka here is just outlined. No crossing lines and no shading. I want to do this again, adding stuff in the negative spaces within the mooka. Maybe it'll look really cool!
(sshhh, I had to pencil in the mooka normally, then outline, then erase)
A Burst of Energy
I also put Fricle in there, a very simple version. But won't it be fun to make mooka BE the negative space. I'll be playing with that idea today and tomorrow.


  1. The two patterns play together nicely. Thanks for being part of the TNTM challenge this week!

  2. Oh mooka as negative space, that would be awesome. I like your breeze, the jelly roll look like snails to me, Bijou gets himself in everywhere!

  3. Very cool, HeidiSue!! I used Jumu too but got caught doing variations :) Jelly Roll is perfect balance :) :)
