Diva Challenge #184 - Just play-ING around!

It's been a long week with a few challenges on the home front, but getting better. I am sorry that I am so late getting this up this week, but while I absolutely LOVE this tangle, finding things to go with it proved to be quite a challenge for me. I probably filled a half dozen pages in my sketch book, just playing with the steps in ING (which I must say is really quite fun!), and trying how to best use it.  The very first thing I saw when I did ING was the Olympic Cauldron here in Salt Lake for the 2002 Winter Olympics, as well as the Hoberman Arch details. So I played around with that idea for a bit and came up with this tile to remind me of the great time we had here during the Olympics. Not my best work, but it was a lot of fun even though it didn't quite come out the way I had intended.
Olympic Cauldron in SLC - Color actually looks better in person

Tile #2 using ING, don't know the other tangles because the pen took over

The I tried a not quite so straight ING and I love the flow-ING lines here. I may have to copy this one and try it with some color

Tile #3 - Just let my pen take over on this one ... LOL
This last one is probably my favorite because I just let it free flow and anded up making lots of mistakes, but tried to cover them and make them into something else.  Hope you enjoy my offerings this week!  And don't forget to check out all the other on the Diva's blog


  1. Three very nice tiles. I like #2 - don't know why - just do!

  2. Greta tiles, all three. My favorite is (like you( the last one. It's quite organic and I like that.

  3. Wow, they are fantastic - I love all three

  4. Oh my gosh! my first thought on seeing the pic of the structure that inspired ING was "That looks like the SLC olympic torch!" hahaha. I love that you created a piece using it...and ING does very well for it, too. You captured the surrounding structures, too! Looks like you had loads of fun with ING this week.
    Well done.

  5. I really like all your tiles. I like the little hint of color in the first one. If you color the second one please post it. I like the second one the best.
