Moowa

This week the DivaCZT challenges us to use the tangle Moowa designed by Anya Ipsen, a CZT in Hamburg, Germany. I have a number of swaps from the Travelling Tangles Project on Facebook so I decided to use some of those tiles.

I started in black and white with a tile from Simone Menzel in Dresden, Germany. She had done her own tangle MySwing diagonally through the middle. I added Moowa and Phuds in the opposite corners. (Step-outs for MySwing are on Simone's blog here.)
Tangles: Moowa, MySwing, Phuds
Next I used a fun, candy-colored ATC from Sue Olsen in Ohio, USA. Sue did the bands and orbs at the bottom and I did Moowa and more at the top.
Tangles: Crescent Moon, Moowa, unknown.
I still have two tiles given to me by Yvonne Westover in Ontario, Canada. She dyed them using avocado skins. Yes, really! Interestingly, the final color is a delicate orange-pink. The tangling is all mine on this one.
Tangles: Diva Dance, Fern, Moowa, Printemps

  7. Your tiles are stunning - as always! I am fascinated by tangling on colored tiles and the process of letting go of obvious paths to just see what emerges. Your results are very inspiring! And I LOVE your bold use of black. I am also delighted to discover MySwing!! Thanks, Margaret. :)
