Weekly Challenge #137, a TOW, and Some Organic Tangles

Laura, the Diva, has given us an interesting challenge this week. Knightsbridge and Tipple. Two very easy tangles, so what to do to make them interesting. Here's mine:
I was playing with my Twinkle H2O watercolors again. I just love the look of them. You can't really see the beautiful colors here, trust me, they are. My Yahoo Group had a TOW using Opus:
And, finally, some organic tangles just to please my friend Amy. Check out her NEW tangle blog and leave her a welcoming comment. New bloggers need a lot of encouragement :) (And, she does beautiful work besides!)

    1. Me too, Amy. I thought teaching Zendala's would be my favorite but now I can't wait to work with you all on the gardens. So many possibilities! And thanks for the kind comment too.

  7. Very nice to see so many different pieces. Your challenge is very organic and you did a great job of softening a very grid like tangle. Love the opus on the colored background, and the white shading is so very effective. All lovely.

    1. Thanks, Sue. I did the teardrop string, but when I finished I thought I should add something. I think it kind of looks like an octopus! That tan paper is nice to work on with the white and sepia.
