Joey's Challenge #53; Border Print

First step in this week's challenge over at made by joey: 
 tangle a border print
Second step:  
tangle an all-over design 
Third step: 
either combine them both on one tile, or use them on separate tiles and stack one on top of the other to create the border around the all-over design. I chose to do the former, and I did it twice. I couldn't seem to get it right the first time around.

This was the first border I did; but I originally couldn't seem to come up with an all-over pattern to fill it. (I didn't think to scan it at that point)

So I did this one; 
the fill pattern quickly followed the border. 
 It wasn't until I scanned it to my computer that I realized that I hadn't attempted to shade it. After taking a good look at it, I decided that there really didn't seem to be any way to shade it, so I left it as is. Then I went back to the first border and added the all-over fill pattern.

I'm not really happy with these, but I did them, so I'm posting them. Take a look at joey’s site to see the other entries, and maybe try one yourself. And come back next week when I hope to have new and improved tiles for you to see.


  1. Actually, I think you can be happy with both of them, as they both look really nice. I do have to admit that I like the second one better, tho, 'cause I really like the triangular border.


    1. Thanks, Joyce. I really like the triangular border, too. It's called Triral, and I use it a lot.


Thanks for visiting; please leave a comment, favorable or not. I'd love to hear your thoughts. That's how we learn and grow; and how we know someone out there is paying attention.

Have a wonderful day; see you all next time.
