Last week's Diva challenge was to use the initials in our name to pick the tangles for our artwork. I took the opportunity to find patterns on TanglePatterns.com that I had never used.
To go along with my EC, I chose Escalator by CZT and author, Suzanne McNeill and CO2 by Antonine Megger. I opted to use my middle initial, but since it is also E, I just added more Escalator.
I love how this tile ended up reminiscent of Escher's impossible stairs in Relativity. I was always a big Escher fan, and I know that part of my love of Zentangle® art is related to this stunning example of lifework and shading.
I filled the tile with Escalator going in different directions. I found it easier to do if I completed one set of stairs before moving on to another one. I added an inner aura in the three negative spaces then put some cute CO2 bubbles around the outside so they could float behind the stairs.
I had a lot of fun with this one!
