Well, anyway. Joey's challenge was to fill up the whole string with one tangle: Knightsbridge. Because there is so much filling in, it uses a lot of ink, so I don't play with Knightsbridge much, so this was a fun, challenging challenge.
However, I had just as much, if not more, fun with a new pattern on tanglepatterns.com...last week's new tangle was Cathedral ...it is so cool looking, so I played around with it and I made a page of it, as it is shown
|figuring things out|
I finished a page, then added my own embellishments that I didn't like. (those rings? yikes!) But the pattern itself is very cool to look at, and I love the examples given on tanglepatterns.com.
But I got thinking...this pattern is based on the ceiling inside a cathedral, and another recent tangle featured on the website was MA XIII, which is based on a design on the entry of another cathedral. So I thought why not incorporate the flower motif from MA XIII?

some ways were better than others. But I really liked the MAIII element, and the diamond shapes are pleasing too.
|wouldn't this make a nice border|
Now, for my entry into the Joey challenge:
Looks like a confused race flag hahaha!
the pattern in the background is an adaptation that I love to use, called a-torm.
Of all the renditions of Knightsbridge, I like the one on the bottom center of the X the best. I made a standard grid, then did X's through each square, and colored in the resulting diamond shapes. One more thing: the left side of the X I tried filling in the squares with a scribble effect...not sure if i like it, but the sort of shaggy look was intentional.
