Undulating challenge.

How could I NOT take the opportunity to do a challenge in which we were to use 'undulating' patterns? It is such an enticing word! and I love tangles like that SO much. Especially Meringue, which is a big-time favorite of mine. So, instead of what I should do (I am the worlds best procrastinator!), I sat down with a few delicious blue scraps of card stock and set to work. This is what came out the other end of the pen (and blue and green and white colored pencils).

Free form version of Meringue

a more grid like version which kind of began with Cadent

I also decided to go ahead and make the alterations to the second zendalla from last week's challenge entry because the more I looked at it the more it was clear it could be enhanced. So, if you are curious, I added the altered version to that post. Head on over using the link and check it out.

Now I really suppose I should go do what I am supposed to be doing... or maybe I can get distracted by something else along the way... like my pillow!

    1. Thanks! I think the Cadent one also has a shade of Paradox in there too the way the 'columns' twist - even without the straight lines. The white really makes those colors glow.

  4. Although there are lots of lines and curves, it's the simplicity of these tiles that stands out. Just a couple of patterns, just a couple of colours but lots of movement, lots of pleasure. Very very nice.

  5. Something about the first one reminds me of some fantastical blue fish gracefully swimming in a pool. I love the colors! The second one is so calming with the repetitive curving pattern. You really hit this one spot on!
