The latest focus tangle on Square One has been Fife.
I did a Monotangle; I've been doing a lot of them lately.
This uses one of my strings, #175, 
and 2 variations of Fife

Joey's Challenge #131, Finish My Tangle: Buttercup; String Thing #163

Joey's challenge this week is another Finish My Tangle,
using Buttercup
 
 As usual, for these Finish My Tangle challenges,
I've done a monotangle:

and maybe try one yourself.

 Here's the string for Adele Bruno's String Thing #263
 
and the tangles to be used are:Andante, Cruffle, and Flukes
As you may notice, I only used 1 Fluke. It just seemed
to happen that way. Everything just fell into place.
 
Be sure to check out all the entries @ Tickled to Tangle, on Monday afternoon, when Adele Bruno posts them. The vast differences that can be achieved using the same tangles on the same string are truly incredible. And, if you've a mind to try a String Thing yourself, check back on Tuesday afternoon,
when she offers the new ones.

Diva's Challenge #284; Tripoli Monotangle

I'm a little late with this; but I thought I'd post it anyway. 
I kind of dashed it off last night; dashed being the operable 
word here. For some reason, Tripoli is not the easiest tangle 
for me. But I figured that the more I try it, the better I'll get at it.

 Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself.

Joey #130, Finish my Tile/Tipple; Square One, Crezendo

At first when I saw Joey's tile for her "Finish My Tile" challenge,
I didn't think I could continue doing a monotangle with it, as I 
had been doing with the other "Finish My Tile" challenges.

But then I had an "Aha!" moment, and came up with this:
 A little simplistic; but it does the job.

and maybe try one yourself.

Diva #283 UMT: Centre Square; Square One: A-Dalfa + Beeline

Just getting caught up at the last minute. 

The Diva's challenge this week, the first of the month;
is a UMT (Use My Tangle), and the tangle is Centre Stage, 
by Aleesha Sattva. As is often the case; I did 2 versions:
same string, #175, viewed from different angles; and using
Sepia and Rust Sakura pens on beige tiles. The paper in the 
tiles is very grainy, and when I shaded (with Prismacolor 
pencils), it wasn't possible to smooth the shading.  So there's
a little extra texture.

I did 2 previous tangles at Square One: Beeline and A-Dalfa;
I'm not overly fond of Beeline, but I really like A-Dalfa.
It's very versatile; lots of tangleations.
