Overlapping Circles and Rectangles, and another Striped Tile

is to tangle 5 overlapping circles.
I forgot to scan the overlapping circles before I tangled them, but I'm sure you get the picture.
I used quite a few tangles and/or tangleations in this tile:
Opus, Purk, Knightsbridge, Unyun, Paushalov,  Aquafleur, Meer,  Crescent Moon, Kandy Ribnz, and Paradox
String Thing #56 features String #57
and any or all of the following tangles:
 Tagh by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas
Telis by Chrissie Frampton
Ticking by JJ La Barbera
Trivet by CZT Nancy Newlin
Twile by Lesley Scott-Gillilan

I started out thinking I would use them all, 
but it didn't work out that way:
 As you can see, I only used Tagh, Trivet, and 2 variations of Telis. It just seemed like adding anything else would be overkill.
Since it's the first week of the month, the Diva's Challenge  is a UMT (Use My Tangle), where the Diva offers a tangle designed by one of us. This month it's X-Did, by Annette Carlo. The step-outs are here in case you're interested in trying it out, and perhaps joining in the fun. 

This tangle is very versatile, but can be a little challenging at first (that's what a challenge is all about, n'est pas?). I admit that I played around with it all week, and only this afternoon came up with an idea for my tile. As I said last week, I love tangling stripes, so here's another striped tile:

Be sure to visit joey’s site, Tickled to Tangle for the String Thing, and i am the Diva 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.


  1. three very nice tiles. I like the 3D effect of knightsbridge in the 5 circles. I like the clarity of your string thing entry and I like how your filled the large diamonds in your X-Did.

    1. Thank you, Kia. I'm glad you found so much to like in my tiles. It makes doing them worth while.

  2. I like your squiggles in the big diamonds. It's a great contrast to all the straight lines.

  3. Audrie, all of your tiles are beautiful. And I like that string. I may have to give it a go! I'm so glad you did not give up on on 'X-DID' . It turned out beautifully!! Thanks for giving it a try! Have an awesome day! :0) Annette Share Humanity

    1. Oh, ps, thanks for letting me know about the comment section of my blog. I don't know what's happening with it. Me and technology, we don't always get along!!! :0)

    2. Thank you, Annette. I'm glad that you like my tiles. And I'm glad that I kept going on X-DID; I can see that it's very versatile and I'm sure I'll use it again.
      And the comment section on your blog seems to be working.

  4. All are beautiful and the X-did is great!

  5. Your Diva Challenge Tile is great. Love your use of diamond shapes as a theme through out your design. Beautifully done. All of your tiles are wonderful.

    1. Thank you so much, David. Glad that you like my work.
