Challenge #54-Purple Haze

This week's challenge from the Diva is to use the color purple in your tile.  I just happened to have a Sakura gelly roll glitter pen in purple, so here you go...........




Hmmm, where I have I seen these colors before.....of course, the Colorado Rockies colors are purple, black, and white.  Since that was fun, I thought I'd do another.....I remembered seeing a blog post of Margaret Bremner's where she did a tangleation of the two tangles Drupe & Fracas (curve each section the opposite way) and I've been wanting to give that a try.....




Still didn't have the waves I recalled, so I did what I should have in the 1st place, and went back to Margaret's post and really looked at the details.  I discovered I need to make more of a pronounced curve in each section and maybe line up some of the lines to get that more curvy flow that she has got going on in her tangleation.  What did I learn....it's all in the details, and don't rely on this old memory of mine...look it up first!  Well, it will be fun to try again another day.

P.S.  It was my youngest daughter Lindsay's 20th birthday on the 17th (no more teenagers) and I remember both of my daughters loved the colors purple and pink when they were little.  :)

  1. This is very lovely Sue, the purple comes out beautiful.
    I see you have used the tangle "Fengle", and I love that one, but cannot find the tutorial of it.
    Do you know where I can find it?

    1. Thanks, Mariet! The tangle Fengle steps were only given to CZT's and we were told not to publish them anywhere. We can only teach the steps in our classes.

  4. Love the movement of the first one. You are enjoying the calendar as well. I just got mine this week so it is fun to see what others are doing with theirs.

  6. Hello, Sue! Great tiles & calendar entry! Happy Birthday to your Lindsay. Ah...pink & purple! Once, in the 80s, my best friend--who had a rather preppie style--and I were walking through the campus of our local college, Mary Washington. She was wearing purple corduroy Bermuda shorts and a pink Saddlebred cable sweater...or maybe the shorts were pink and the sweater purple...there may have been a pink pinstriped Oxford cloth shirt or a polo in the mix.... We were probably sophomores in high school...maybe a year older or younger. We were actually walking to our high school youth group meeting or choir practice at her church. As we walked through the campus (the "scenic route") we kept hearing this voice ringing out over campus. It was some smart-alec college kid broadcasting comments to passers-by on a bullhorn. We didn't pay it much attention until we heard it say, "PINK and PURPLE?!!! What's up with that?? Your Mama still sendin' you clothes????!!!!!" We were mortified/thrilled!!! This college person had noticed us!!! And ridiculed our (her) wardrobe. But noticed us! And thought we were in college! To this day, she and I will crack up at the mere phrase, "pink and purple."

    Sorry to bask in that memory; I don't get to tell that story very often. *smile*

    I, too, just received my calendar and started working in it last night. I think a daily commitment to the calendar will help me kick my sluggish tangle pace into a higher gear!
