Challenge 6 IXORUS/tangleation

Another great challenge from Laura Harms, at her I Am The Diva blog.  If you haven't seen Rick & Maria's newsletter dated 1/21/11, you need to check it out.  They introduced another new tangle, IXORUS, and a new word, tangleation.  Here's the link: Zentangle newsletter.  Well, after I made my tile, my husband and I had a dinner time discussion about tangleations and tessellations.  The calendar I bought this year for my kitchen is an M. C. Escher, who is a master at tessellations.  When I did my tile I knew that the tangle Cadent is a tessellation, so I decided to make that one a tangleation, using the basic Ixorus.  After doing that and Ixorus, I settled for Florz to complete the tangle, instead of thinking about another tangleation, which was getting to be too much "left brain" for the relaxation of Zentangle.  In our discussion we decided that a tangleation could start in any form, not just Ixorus, as long as it was a variation of an existing tangle.  Being the trouble maker he is, he posed this question:  If you made a varation of two or more tangles and put them together, would that be a super tangleation
