Weekly Challenge #301

Greeting Fellow Tanglers!

The diva challenge this week came from a video that Rick and Maria released called Kitchen Table Tangles. In the first of what will be a series, Rick demonstrates the DuoTangle of Paradox and Diva Dance. Laura picked this as our challenge this week.

Stephanie@EverythingIsArt was nice enough to do a traveling tangle though her blog awhile back, (since I am not on Facebook) and I did a trade with her. Of course one was sitting on my worktable ledge staring me in the face, and I didn’t know what to do with it. The start was Paradox, so it was the perfect storm so to speak, and just what I needed to get it finished. Here is my finish, and Stephanie’s start. (I started rounding one of the paradox before I remembered to take a photo.)

Michele also threw out the option of a traveling tangles trade on her blog, so I was working this past week on getting her starts ready to go. I can’t wait to see how they morph and change with someone else finishing them. I can see why this could get addicting, plus the fun of getting interesting snail mail. Sent them off in a tangled 3Z card.

I also finished a tile for the Tangled Mosaic Project #6. The theme was Starry Sky. You can find more information about this project here.

Lastly here in my IAST #181 from last week. We used Zen bud as a string, and Pozer, and Puf which were both new to me tangles. I also wanted to share a photo of my new quarter enrichment group at school and a mosaic of their first tiles. They all all had a great time with tangling, and are busy on their second tiles this week.

 Thanks for stopping by, and for all of your lovely comments!
They do make my day!
Have a great week and Tangle on!


  1. Wow, the travelingtile with Stephanie turned out beautiful and great starters for Michele.
    I also like the other results but your tile for Annette's Mosaic is gorgeous. It will be a very nice surprise to see the project with all the other tanglers!!!

  2. The Diva tile is beautiful, I especially like the rounded Paradox. The tile for Annette's project is wonderful, too. I'm looking forward to see the final mosaic since I have also submitted a tile.

  3. Sorry, I was too fast and forgot to sign my name. Heike

  5. Wow! Your Travelling Tangle with Stephanie is fantastic, especially that it fit this weeks Diva theme so perfectly. I'm so excited to get my mitts on those pieces you started for me;-) Thank you!

  6. Wow, Kate! There's so much to love in this post! I enjoyed Rick & Maria's KTT video and tried it myself - a delightful activity. Your collaboration with Stephanie is gorgeous! You so seamlessly completed her start. It's an eye-catching tile. :) I love your starts for Michele as well as the card you sent them in. I look forward to seeing how she finishes them! What a fun tile for the mosaic - I must remember to take a look when the project is complete. Your ZenBud IAST is SOOOO beautiful! The color AND the tangling! Yum!! And your students' work is impressive. How lucky they are to have you! What's the age range?

    As always, Kate, I look forward to every post and enjoy keeping up with what you're tangling. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I love how you finished that beautifully colored tile. I adore how you have sections of paradox flowing into diva dance. Just lovely! All the pieces you have created are wonderful!

  12. I'm kind of glad you posted your Paradox with it just partially rounded as i demonstrated the technique quite clearly that way. I just love the finished tile!
