Dex & Verdigogh - #27

Laura Harms' weekly challenge (#27) is to create a Zentangle using two specific tangles: dex and vertigogh.

This is a great exercise because it may be asking you to do tangles that you might not normally do, and because it uses two tangles that you might not think to combine.

Here are Maria's two contributions:



Note on dex's inspiration
Our original inspiration for dex was this building in lower Manhattan.


You also see it frequently in parquet flooring. We took this picture yesterday during our walk around the Hotel Providence.


Please be sure to take some time to enjoy and appreciate the many wonderful contributions to this challenge.

I certainly did get my exercise. It was a workout trying to combine these two tangles. One so structured and the other so free. But it is amazing how they really do work out together.

I love how Dex got a little bit curvy in this challenge. It goes to show how versatile these tangles can be. Lovely effect!

I love the sinuous lines of dex. This gives a very free and flexible. I like. (google translation)
