Challenge #27 Duo-Tangle

In this challenge the Diva has us using only 2 tangles, Dex & Verdigogh.  These are two very different tangles, Dex with straight lines and Verdigogh being more organinc.  This was one I had to sit and think about for awhile.  Instead of starting with the usual string I decided to draw all the large black squares of Dex and use my white Gelly Roll pen to draw Verdigogh on top of those squares.  I then extended the Verdigogh branches with my black pen in some area but not in others.  After that I completed the outside lines of Dex.  

I have always admired the way that Maria Thomas weaves her tangles together and continues one tangle with another by using the same lines.  She makes it look so easy and the results are always so beautiful!  This is something I need to continue to work on, because I love how it looks.  I can see it, but getting it from my mind to the paper.....now that is something else altogether!  Practice, practice practice, and continue to enjoy the process.  :)
