This week Laura at I am the Diva set us the challenge of creating a tile or ZIA using the tangle Mi2.
I was really pleased about this as I love Mi2, although I've only drawn it once, and then only to practice it, not draw it "properly"! Thank you Laura for this great challenge!
I decided to concentrate on the negative spaces, which I thought looked not only like seeds, but leaves - so that's what they became, and I decided to make the whole ZIA a big leaf. And then I realised that I have an almost obsessive need to "tie up the loose ends"......so I took that literally and did exactly that around the edges, with my own little knot tangle, as yet un-named and un-published*.
* Update: I've just noticed that there is already an official tangle called Pendrils, which is very similar to this one, so I cannot call it my own after all. Never mind - I'm sure I'll come up with something original one day!
I just had to use my beloved watercolours of course, and polka dots, which I adore. I hope you like my ode to a leaf.
