Under-lapping some of the leaves gives it more dimensionality. This could be shaded where all the lines converge, or on the under-lapping, or at the edge of the tangle.
Here are a couple of tiles using this tangle:
|Lilypads, Th@, Barnacle, Coaster, Crescent Moon, Gingham, Keeko, Lotus Pods, Munchin, Snookums|
Oh yes, the tangle TH@ (pronounce it 'that'). I don't even know if I should take credit for a tangle pattern. Check out th@ second tile above. See the parallel bars going from top left to bottom right, interspersed with white bars with beads on threads? Check out th@ tangle.
It's a whole bunch of @ signs at various angles!!! Hahaha! This is yet another brilliant idea that popped into my head one morning when I wasn't quite awake. How 'bout th@?!
